C                        G
Say hey Johnny boy, the battle call
C                   G
Divided we stand, united we fall
C                        G
Together we are what we canʼt be alone
C                            D
We came to this country you made it our home

C                    G
This man so humble, this man so brave
C                     G
A legend to many, he fought to his grave
C                                  G
Saved family and friends from the hardship and horror
C                               D
In a land of depression he gave hope for tomorrow
C                 G
Say hey Johnny, this oneʼs for you
C                                  G
With the strength of many and the courage of a few
C                      G
To what do we owe this man whoʼs fight
C                      D
Was for the masses he gave his life

Say hey Johnny, the battle call
United we stand, divided we fall
Together we are what we canʼt be alone
We came to this country, you made it our home

A friend to the locals who dabbled in crime
Heʼd give you a job and heʼd give you his time
He wasnʼt a crook but he couldnʼt be conned
John knew the difference between right and wrong
Say Johnny me boy, you live no longer
Otherʼs forgotten, your memories stronger
Letʼs drink to the causes in your life
Your family, your friends, the union, your wife


And the boys on the docks needed John for sure
When they came to this country he opened the door
He said men Iʼll tell ya, they donʼt like our kind
Though it starts with a fist it must end with your mind
