"I'm a friend of Johnny's
He played with you last night
I nearly tried to make it but I
Wasn't feeling right"
"I'm a friend of Johnny's, yeah we
Grew up in the Haight. Man I
Wish I could have made it cause he
Said you guys were great"
"You remember Johnny! He's the
Guy who's in that band? You know he
Said you were good people and could
Lend a friend a hand"
"I'm a friend of Johnny's, but he
Had to catch a train and I
Need a slice of pizza, could you
Spare a little change?"
It struck me for a moment, and I
Guess it crossed my mind that I
Could have left him hanging like I
Didn't have the time, but he
Looked a little ragged with a
Blanket on his back and, well I
Knew another slice of pizza
Wouldn't set me back.
Besides I do remember Johnny. It was
Only yesterday. So I
Handed him a buck and I wished him good luck
And with a smile, he walked away.
I'm a Friend of Johnny Johnny and I
Guess it isn't strange. There's a
Lot of friends of Johnny out there
Looking for some Change.
