Who Shot Handsome Johnnie?

Who shot handsome Johnnie?

Who really fired those shots?

Two or three nobodies

just slipped on by the cops.

Who shot handsome Johnnie

on the street in the bright daylight?

They told us all a good story

that never did sound right.

Who shot handsome Johnnie?

Don't tell me about that crazy kid.

When did he ever shoot something,

something he could hit?

And who was working it on the inside

to cover the tracks and the alibis?

Oh, what an honor it must have been

to be stabbed in the back by those honorable men.

Who shot handsome Johnnie

and who paid off on that hit?

Who was going to lose some money

if they let that man live?
