Spanish Johnny Recorded by Emmylou Harris with Waylon Jennings Written by David Bromberg and Paul Siebel
C D Those other years the dusty years we drove the big herds through C D I tried to forget the miles we rode and Spanish Johnny too C D He'd sit beside a water ditch when all his herd was in C G D And he'd never harm a child but sing to his mandolin
C D The old talk the old ways and the dealing of our game C D Spanish Johnny never spoke but sing a song of Spain C D And his talk with men was vicious talk when he was drunk on gin C G D7 Ah but those were golden things he said to his mandolin
C D Oh we had to stand we tried to judge we had to stop him then C D For the hand so gentle to a child had killed so many men C D He died a hard death long ago before the road come in C G D And the night before he swung he sung to his mandolin
C D Well we carried him out in the morning sun a man that done no good C D And we lowered him down in the cold clay stuck in across of wood C D And the letter we wrote to his kinfolk to tell them where he'd been C G D And we shipped it out to Mexico along with his mandolin
