Asleep at the Wheel Letter That Johnny Walker Read Lyrics

Johnny Walker sat

At a table in a bar

Minding his own affairs


Drinking his namesake

Over the rocks

He was drunk

Too drunk to care


When a girl in the bar

Walked up beside him

And this is what she said


She said, a woman came by

With a letter for you

And this is what the letter said



Dear, John, please, Johnny

Please come home

I need your love and

The kids, they gotta be fed

And John, if you don't

Hurry back, I'll be gone

Yes, that's what the letter said

The letter that Johnny Walker read


Then John

He got up from the table

Slowly, he walked outside


He was thinking of his wife

And little children at home

And how his drinking

Had ruined their lives


Then John, he stared off

Into that street light

And a vision filled his

Poor, poor heart with dread


For it was him lying drunk

There in that gutter

Clutching in his hand

The letter that Johnny Walker read

And this is what it said
