The runway rushed up at him as he felt the wheels
touch down
He stood out on the blacktop and took a taxi into
He got out down on Main Street and went into a
local bar
He bought a drink and found a seat in a corner off
the dark
Well she called up her mama to make sure the kids
were out of the house
She checked herself out in the dining room mirror
And undid an extra button on her blouse
He felt her lying next to him, the clock said 4:00 am
He was staring at the ceiling
He couldn't move his hands

Oh mama mama mama come quick
I've got the shakes and I'm gonna be sick
Throw your arms around me in the cold dark night
Hey now mama don't shut out the light
Don't you shut out the light
Don't you shut out the light
Don't you shut out the light
Don't you shut out the light

Well on his porch they stretched a banner that said
"Johnny Welcome Home"
Bobby pulled his Ford out of the garage and they
polished up the chrome
His mama said "Johnny oh Johnny, I'm so glad to
have you back with me"
His pa said he was sure they'd give him his job back
down at the factory


Well deep in a dark forest, a forest filled with rain
Beyond a stretch of Maryland pines there's a river
without a name
In the cold black water Johnson Lineir stands
He stares across the lights of the city and dreams of
where he's been
