Lyrics

Funniest thing you ever seen was Long Lost John from Bowling Green~No hat on his head or shoes on his feet, begging all the women for bread and meat~He’s long gone, long gone, he’s long gone, Lost John~Took Lost John to the burlesque show, got him a seat on the very first row~The girls come out to do the dance, they hauled John away in an ambulance~He’s long gone, long gone, he’s Long Lost John~Bank got robbed in broad daylight, sheriff got mad, said shoot on sight~But hide nor hair was ever seen of long Lost John from Bowling Green~He’s long gone, long gone, he’s long gone, Lost John~Lost John sitting on the railroad track waiting for the freight train to come back~Freight train come, never made a stop, but there goes John riding on top~He’s long gone, long gone, he’s Long Lost John~Long gone, long gone, he’s Long Lost John
