(wo-o-o-o! wo-o-o-o! wooo!)
Cause her son had been shot down in the street and died

Explaining to her was a passerby
Wondering how can she work it out,
Gift of jah is life. (life)
"Johnny was a good man," I - I know! (never did a thing wrong)
Good, good, good man", (Johnny was good man)

As her son had been shot down in the street and died

Comforting her I was passing by.
Oh-ooh-wo-ah, cry (ah-ah), yeah, I know now (ah-ah),
Said I know, mm-mm-mm-mm-mm. (never did a thing wrong)
Can a woman tender care, she cried, (never did a thing wrong)
Wo-ho-ho-ooh! woman cry, woman - (never did a thing wrong)
Can a woman tender care
Wo-now, cry! (Johnny was a good man)
