Johnny Bye Bye by Bruce Springsteen


She drew out all her money from the Southern Trust

And put her little boy on a Greyhound Bus

Leaving Memphis with a guitar in his hand

On a one-way ticket to the promised land

Hey little girl with the red dress on

There's party tonight down in Memphis down

I'll be going down there if you need a ride

The man on the radio says Elvis Presley's died

 

We drove down into Memphis, the sky was hard and black

Up over the ridge came a white Cadillac

They'd drawn out all his money and they laid him in the back

A woman cried from the roadside "Ah he's gone, he's gone"

They found him slumped up against the drain

With a whole lot of trouble running through his veins

Bye-bye Johnny

Johnny bye-bye

You didn't have to die

You didn't have to die

Alternate 1981 live version:

She drew out all her money from the Southern Trust

And put her little boy on a Greyhound bus

Leaving Memphis with a guitar in his hand

With a one-way ticket to the promised land.

 

Now, hey little girl with the red dress on

There's a party tonight down in Memphis town

I'll be going down now if you need a ride

Come on, come on let's go tonight

 

How many have fallen with a dream denied

Now, tell me baby are you lonesome tonight?

'Cause a man on the radio says Elvis Presley died

Come on,come on,let's go tonight.

 

He drove down into Memphis,the sky was hard and black

Up over the ridge came a white Cadillac

They're standing by the roadside. In the heat

Bound together, forever, in the promise of an endless sleep

 

They found him slumped up against the drain

With a whole lot of nothing running through his veins

Bye bye Johnny, Johnny bye bye

You didn't have to die, you didn't have to die.
