Colter Wall - Johnny Boy's Bones lyrics

[Intro} Well I wish I was in the land of cotton Old times they are not forgotten Look away, look away, look away Dixieland [Verse 1] [?] my [?] and cannon torn his grey coat Don't he look fine and handsome Don't he look at his [?] 45 in the foxhole and at this I will boast Don't they look fine and handsome My poor Johnny Boy's Bones [Chorus] Well who will bring back my Johnny Boy's Bones To lay beneath the trees of his Tennessee home A box, a box made of sturdy white oak With his arms folded up and his blue eyes all closed [Verse 2] Well he died for his country And he died for his kin And he died k**ing men A most honorable sin But them mean boys in blue They done turned him in When they laid him low With a laugh and a grin [Chorus X2]
