Johnny was a nobody
that became a somebody           How can that be
be patient I’ll tell ye

It was at dawn
armed strife amidst nations a crisis spawned
Civilians caught up in the middle
they crossed the border coz Johnny manage a fiddle

Saved many lives he did
he’ll be a hero at everybody’s bid
He did not live to see the day
Coz he was killed too soon at doomsday

His body was flown to his hometown
Fellow townsmen who welcome a hero abound
Flags Undulate at half mast in the breeze
A hero was laid to rest at peace.
