Johnny was a hero in an American War
Fought for his country and the girl next door
He became a hero and his father was proud
Then the day he died they hung a name on his shroud

Johnny Boy,
You fought for your country
But the guns they turned around and got you
Johnny Boy,
You fought for your country,
But the bastards turned around and fucked you

You became a hero and your father was proud
Then the day you died they hung a name on yer shroud
You jumped up and took the last battle call
Then the guns turned around and you took the last fall
