Lyrics

Have you heard the rumor? Southside Johnny's dead.

Have you heard the rumor? Southside Johnny's dead.

He was found lying on his stomach. A bullet in his head.

 

They called for the doctor. The doctor came on the run.

Called for the doctor. Doctor came on the run.

He knelt over Johnny. He said, "Lord, lord this poor boy's life is done."

 

Told Crazy Lil. She'd lost her lovin' one.

Told his Crazy Mama. She'd lost her lovin' one.

Cops didn't know who did it. And all they had was a gun.

 

I was standin' in the doorway. When I heard a pistol "POP."

I was standin' in the doorway. When I heard a pistol "POP."

Heard somebody moan. Then I heard a body drop.

 

They say Southside Johnny. Was a real mean stud.

They say Southside Johnny. Was a real mean stud.

Well "HAH", look at him now. Found lyin' in his own pool of blood.

 

So, have you heard the rumor? Southside Johnny's dead.

Have you heard the rumor? Southside Johnny's dead.

He was found lying on his stomach. A bullet in his head.
