Lyrics

The day that Johnny rolled in to town It was the first day of winter or the last day of spring He showed up with nothing but a suitcase Filled with dollar bills and gin He was a habitual liar, but she didn't seem to mind Infact, she kind of secretly enjoyed that kind Tall tales, false names, false papers to back the claims But a charming devil a devil just the same Step right up and be the firt to walk straight down Better than just standing still in this sleepy town Underground you can't hear a sound so close the cellar door There's a shipment coming through Be a the platform by two I'll unload the cargo and you can drive the car This town will have never seen such a happening little barn Step right up and be the first to walk straight down Better than just standing still in this sleepy town But the lure of prohibition whispers than it sings The sweetness of all these forbidden things The gateway to temptation leads to worser sins You're better off to not unlock that door You're better off to not unlock that door Underground you can't hear a sound so close the cellar door... Step right up and be the first to walk straight down Better than just standing still in this sleepy town.
