G
Now you know some fellas they want fame and fortune

                                      D7
Yeah and other fellas they just wanna swing

G
But all I wanted all my life

      C
Was a TV set and a truck and a wife

      D7                                G
And a front row seat to hear ole Johnny sing


                    D7             G
Yeah the TV and the truck I got on credit

                                                D7
And I got that girl with a little old Woolworth ring

    G
And life was warm and life was sweet

    C
But still it was kinda incomplete

          D7                                G
Without a front row seat to hear ole Johnny sing


    D7
Hey John you walk the line do Delia one more time


And when you do them Cotton Fields you warm this heart of mine

  
   G         D7                    G
So one day I thought hey I'm gonna do it (That's what I said)

                                               D7
So I mortgaged the farm and pawned her wedding ring

  G
I sold the gold tooth out of my mouth

    C
And jumped in the pickup and headed south

      D7                                G
For a front row seat to hear ole Johnny sing



I hit Nashville cold and wet and hungry

                                            D7
I said I'm here bring him on let him do his thing

         G
But they told me down at the Old Pit Grill

            C
I'd have to go all the way to Andersonville

      D7                                G
For a front row seat to hear ole Johnny sing


                  D7                             G
I found his house knocked on the door and it was opened

                                                  D7
By a brown haired girl and a baby with a teethin' ring

  G
I said I seen you somewhere before

          C
But don't stand there and block the door

         D7                                G
I want a front row seat to hear ole Johnny sing


    D7
Hey John you walk the line do Delia one more time


And when you do them Cotton Fields you warm this heart of mine


              
She said I'd have to go down to The Opry

                                                D7
And the feller there said I'd have to wait till spring

        G
He said we've been sold out for months and months

         C
And this poor insane fellah wants

  D7                                G
A front row seat to hear ole Johnny sing


               
Well he said a couple more things and I started cryin'

                                                       D7
And then he laughed at me and that's when I started to swing

     G
Well I bust through the doors in a roaring rage

C
Crawled over the crowd till I reached the stage

      D7                                G
For a front row seat to hear ole Johnny sing


    D7
Hey John you walk the line do Delia one more time


And when you do them Cotton Fields you warm this heart of mine



Then some crazy guard started shootin'

                                            D7
I shot back and the next thing I know I was winged and on the floor

       G
When a guy in a voice kinda deep and low

     C
Says boy that's a mighty long way to go

      D7                             G
For a front row seat to hear anybody sing



And I guess that judge he weren't no music lover

                                           D7
I got fifteen months but that don't mean a thing

      G
Cause yesterday in the prison yard

  C
A show come through and har de har

        D7                                G
I had a front row seat to hear ole Johnny sing
