Lyrics
VERSE 1:

G Fmaj7 C
THE DRUGS, THE DRINK....AND THE ROBBERIES....
THAT'S WAS HIS ONLY EDUCATION IN LIFE...
JUST LIKE HIS DAD....GROWING THE FAMILY TREE..
D EM D EM
PETTY CRIMES AT FIRST....LIVING BEHIND A KNIFE...
G Fmaj7 C
BURNT EVERY BRIDGE..... COULD NEVER GO BACK
Fmaj7 C
COULD NEVER GO BACK....... TO: CHORUS 1

VERSE 2:

THEN THE FATEFUL DAYS OF CHICAGO....
HIS GRADUATION WAS BLOOD ON HIS HANDS...
THREE DEAD AS HE SHOT THEM ALL IN A ROW..
HIS DAD WOULD BE PROUD OF THIS.........
BUT JOHNNY NEVER FELT SO LOW
OH SO LOW..........TO: CHORUS 1

VERSE 3:

AND AS HE HIT THE LONELY HIGHWAY...
HE REMEMBERED A CHILD HE DIDN'T REALLY KNOW..
WITH NOWHERE TO GO...HE HEADED FOR THE BORDER
A PLACE AND LIFE HE WISHED NOT FOR HIS SON
HE BURNED HIS BRIDGES...STILL LOTS OF MILES TO RUN
LOTS OF MILES TO RUN... TO: CHORUS 2
