Top o' the mornin to ye! This is a marvelously energetic song by a marvelously
energetic band, so if your hand isn't worn out by the end of the song you're not
strumming fast enough. Like all my other F.M. tabs, there are some parts here
(like the accordion solo) that really shouldn't be played on guitar, so blessed
is he who has an accordion, fiddle, or tin whistle player in his band. Enjoy!

Verse 1:
C
I’m goin’ back to Sentimental Johnny
G
Cause Sentimental Johnny is your man
Sunshine or rain, the man’s on his game
C
The chairman of the boards
He says Jesus, he walks on water
G
Not like us, he must have been sober
Marching away on top of his lake
C
The savior of all souls
Chorus: (Gtr. 1 plays notes while Gtr. 2 plays chords)

To take in all I can (ONCE MORE!!!)
(Repeat intro)
Verse 2:
Well it was back in good ole ‘57
When Johnny met Elvis in Memphis
Rockin’ on sun, where it all begun
A story yet to end
And by this time we’re drinkin’ up a fever
And in me, he has a true believer
If only I could, just for one word
To live it all again
(Repeat Chorus)
Bridge:
F C
Rio, why don’t ya meet me down in Rio... again
F C
Down in Rio, the carnival it never ends
F C
Down in Rio, we’ll find a perfect world in Rio... again
D G
Down in Rio, where the women still love their men
(Repeat intro)

Verse 3:
Well Johnny, it’s two in the mornin’
Don’t you think it’s time we should go?
Back to our millions of records we love
Back to our sad little homes
That was the last that I saw him
Never, no never no more
I wonder if Jesus came to redeem him
Save poor Johnny’s ole soul
I wonder if Jesus came to redeem him
Save poor Johnny’s ole soul
