    Bm      F#m             Em         A  
1. Have a seat and I'll tell you a tale.  
        Em         A       Em  A  
   It wasn't that long ago.  
            Bm            F#m            Em              A  
   About a guy who turned out to be a cheater, got the heater,  
            Em    A    Em  A   
   so the story goes.   
       Bm               F#m               Em  
   He tried the playboy-thing on two friends   
     A                   Em    A   Em  A  
   thinking that they'd never know.  
         Bm          F#m          Em           A   
   They say he got caught in a trap and it snapped,  
              Em      A      Em  A   
   He's not around anymore.  

Chorus:   
                     D                 F#m  
       Poor Johnny, came home looking cool one day,   
        Bm                            G   
       just wasn't lucky to come out that way.   
                     D                   F#m   
       once from the left, than from the right.   
                      Bm               G ?????. A                
       they took him down, late that night.  
   
        Bm          F#m                 Em            A  
2. Now everyone in town knew he always played around,  
               Em       A    Em  A   
   but not a word was said.  
            Bm            F#m           
   All the money and the clothes,  
            Em            A                   Em  A   Em  A  
   and the cars that he drove, just kept his ego fed.   
            Bm            F#m          
   To his friends he was king,  
             Em           A     
   cause he thought of everything  
                Em     A   Em  A  
   except his, number one.   
                Bm           F#m           
   She had the kids and the house,  
          Em            A   
   while he was always out,  
                 Em       A    Em  A   
   leaving his homework undone.  

Chorus:   
                     D                 F#m  
       Poor Johnny, came home looking cool one day,   
        Bm                            G   
       just wasn't lucky to come out that way.   
                     D                   F#m   
       once from the left, than from the right.   
                      Bm               G ?????. A                
       they took him down, late that night.  


    A                F#m  
3. Then one day his luck ran out.     
                Bm   
   When number two found a number and called his house.   
    A                                A6  
   Word on the street is that they talked all night.   
    A6                                         A6       
   They had to teach him a lesson, they had to make things right.
