(wo-o-o-o! wo-o-o-o! wooo!)
Woman hold her head and cry,
Cause her son had been shot down in the street and died
From a stray bullet.

Woman hold her head and cry;
Explaining to her was a passerby
Who saw the woman cry (cry)
Wondering how can she work it out,
Now she knows that the wages of sin is death, yeah!
Gift of jah is life. (life)
She cried: ah-um, I - I know!
"Johnny was a good man," I - I know! (never did a thing wrong)
"Johnny was a good, good, good, good, good, good, good, good,
Good, good, good man", (Johnny was good man)
