Johnny's Gone to Heaven

Johnny's gone to heaven
Left his angel here on earth
Johnny's gone to heaven
But he gave it all he was worth
Johnny's gone to heaven
Left his angel here on earth

Johnny won't be singing
Won't be playing guitar no more
Now he's doin' what he's doin'
On the other side of the shore
Johnny won't be singing
That rock and roll no more
 No more

          Let it rise, let it rise
         Now's the time for sweet goodbyes
          Let it rise, let it rise
Let the song inside you dry the tears in your eyes

The lonesome dreamers hear him
Out on the midnight road
Silver wings are near him
Helping to carry his load
California
Where his tale was told

        Let it rise, let it rise
        Now's the time for sweet goodbyes
         Let it rise, let it rise
Let the song inside you dry the tears in your eyes

Johnny's gone to heaven
Left his angel here on earth
Johnny's gone to heaven
Left from the town of his birth
Johnny's gone to heaven
Left his angel here on earth

In a circle the soul flies 
In a circle the soul flies 
Johnny's gone to heaven
