No thanks, close this window
An Ode to the great Blues Man Johnny Lee Hooker
Got The News Today, Johnny Lee's gone
Jonny Lee Johnny Lee
Well they'll be waiting to help him up the stairs.
Steve Ray and Muddy too ease him into a chair
And they'll play, they'll play all night long.
Were losing all these old ties with the past .
Pretty soon there'll be no one left to ask
Now that Johnny Lee is gone
And BB's getting on.
Another sunrise, but I'm sorry he can't stay
He won't be back here he's calling it a day
He caught a bus back home, were he can play
I listened carefully to every single line
I tried to understand what he saw with his eyes
Is there anybody left to ask anymore
Now that John Lee's gone
