OLD MAN JOHN (Unreleased)

When he was a young boy

God fearing mama brought it in

When he was a young boy

God fearing mama brought it in

Baptized with religion to wash away his sin

The baby had salvation so let the games begin


Johnny rocked and Johnny rolled

But defied the good books word

Johnny rocked and Johnny rolled

But defied the good books word

Godly service was what mama assured

But that rock and roll music was all he heard


CHORUS

Old Man John got a guitar

And he began to play

Back turned on forgiveness

Old John went on his way

He'll tell you that he don't look back

From the front porch of his self built shack

Ain't no religion in that whiskey Old Man John
