C,G x3

F                       C              F                 G
Say hey Johnny boy, the battle call, "United we stand, divided we fall" 
F                       C
Together we are what we can't be alone 
   F                        G
We came to this country you made it our home

Verse 1:
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 
     D                          G
In a land of depression he gave hope for tomorrow
C              G
Say Johnny boy this ones for you 
         C                        G
With the strength of many and the courage of few 
   C                   G
To what do we owe this man who's fight 
            D                   G
Was for the masses, he gave his life

Chorus x1

Verse 2:
  C                        G
A friend to the locals who dabbled in crime 
     C                       G
He'd give you a job and he'd give you his time 
   C                     G
He wasn't a crook but he couldn't be conned 
D                                G
John knew the difference between right and wrong 
C                   G
Say Johnny boy, you live hear no longer 
C                      G
Others forgotten, your memories stronger 
C                         G
Let's drink to the causes in your life 
     D                         G
Your family, your friends, the union, your wife

Chorus (no guitar)

Chorus x1

        C                        G
And the boys on the docks needed John for sure 
          C                       G
When they came to this country he opened the door 
          C                      G
He said, "Men I'll tell ya, they don't like our kind" 
          D                          G
Though it starts with a fist it must end with your mind
