"Johnny O" as written by and Wendy/leo Waldman....
Way down in the delta
Where the days move slow
There's a squeeze box player
Name a Little Johnny O
He's got a four piece band
And they're playin' real tight
Make the people go crazy
Every Saturday night

Singing, Hey Johnny O
Let's Fied-I-Ay
On the ol' bayou
Hey Johnny O
Well play the Tennessee Waltz
And the Zydeco

They like their Chuck Berry records
And some Fats Domino
But the thing they like the most
Is hearin' Little Johnny O
Playin' Fiedle-I-Oh
Little Johnny O
Playin' Fiedle-I-Oh
That's right Johnny

Well the Natches girls
They like to stroll around town
When Johnny starts a playin'
You see 'em come unwound
Well the boys in the corner
All loosin' their minds
Gonna make their move
When Johnny gives the sigh

Singing, Hey Johnny O
Let's Fied-I-Ay
On the ol' bayou
Hey Johnny O
Play the Tennessee Waltz
And the Zydeco

They like their old country records
They're the mill for the soul
But the thing they like the most
Is hearin' Little Johnny O
Playin' Fiedle-I-Oh
Little Johnny O
Playin' Fiedle-I-Oh
Play it, Hey Johnny
That's the ticket
(Let's get down girl)

Way down in the delta
Where the big blue flows
There's a one little secret
That everybody knows
If you just can't sleep
And you're feelin' down
There's an all-night cure
Outside of town

And it's Hey Johnny O
Let's Fied-I-Ay
On the ol' bayou
Hey Johhny O
Play the Tennessee Waltz
And the Zydeco

They like all those songs
On the radio
But the thing they like the most
Is hearin' Little Johnny O
Playin' Fiedle-I-Oh
Little Johnny O
Playin' Fiedle-I-Oh
Little Johnny O
Playin' Fiedle-I-Oh
Little Johnny O
Playin' Fiedle-I-Oh hey
Hey Johnny
What is Fiedle-I-Oh?
