Brenda Holloway – Till Johnny Comes Lyrics

After Johnny goes
Johnny's going
Johnny's going away
Johnny's going [Intro]
Johnny's coming
Johnny's coming one day
Johnny's coming
Stay with me, baby
Till Johnny comes
He'll come one day and I know it
But he's having fun
[Verse 1]
He's out painting the world scarlet red
And he's left me alone to be blue
One day he'll come to take me away
From this love I've been sharing with you
Stay with me, baby (stay with me, baby)
And hold me near (stay with me, baby)
Just the way Johnny used to hold me (stay with me, baby)
When he was here
[Verse 2]
'Cause when last he was here, we were kissing
And I thrilled to the way he spoke my name
When he thinks of the true love he's been missing
He'll be coming back to stake his claim
Since Johnny's been gone, you have dried
All of the tears I have cried
Won't you stay here by my side
Till Johnny shows
And I'll tell Johnny he's come too late
Just how long did he think I would wait? And then stay with me forever
Won't you stay with me forever?
