Lyrics
Johnny and his gun were never parted,
And he's standing at the bar,
He's only seventeen and fresh from frisco,
And he's looking for the man that shot his pa,
CHORUS
So sad so sad, good boy gone bad,
He was his fathers son,oh that boy could shoot a gun,

He's lightning fast with that gun he carries,
And he's killed three men who never saw him draw,
He'd like to think maybe he'll live forever,
Or until he gets the man that shot his pa,
CHORUS
So sad so sad, good boy gone bad,
He was his fathers son, oh that boy could shoot a gun,

Down the street in the noonday sun,
Came a tall dark stranger with a low slung gun,
Called Johnny out said son you#ve had your fun,
gonna take your life away,

Out on the street they draw and fire together,
Johnny's bullet hits a deadly place,
Although he's hurt real bad it doesn't matter,
He's dying with a smile upon his face,

CHORUS
So sad so sad, good boy gone bad,
He was his fathers son,oh that boy could shoot a gun.
