Johnson Boys 2 Have you heard the many a story, Told by old and young with joy, About the many deeds of daring That was done by the Johnson boys ? cho: Hop up, pretty girls, don't be afraid (2x) The Johnson boys were boys of honor, They knew how to court the maids, They knew how to hug and kiss them, Hop up, pretty girls, don't be afraid They were lads of skill and courage And their sight was very far And they joined their country's service In that awful Civil War, They were scouts in the rebel's army And were known far and wide When the Yankees saw them coming They throw down their guns and hide. From New Lost City Ramblers Originally recorded by Al Hopkins and the Buckle Busters RG
