ARLO GUTHRIE lyrics - John Looked Down

ARLO GUTHRIE
"John Looked Down"
(Arlo Guthrie)

[Chorus:]
Lying on the side of the road
Feeling like he heard a sound
Shivered with the feelin' that he knowed
John looked down, John looked down
John looked down the long, long road

She gave John a present that was fine
So fine that he had to go
Went to see what it was that he knowed
John looked down, John looked down
John looked down the long, long road

And I know it's hard
But what did you expect of her?
John looked down

If you see the lady in your mind
Even in her nothingness
Standing through the darkest night
And the people want to fight
But first ask if it's all right
John looked down, John looked down
John looked down the long, long road

[Chorus]

And I know it's hard
But what did you expect of her?
John looked down
