Am           Am9         Am        Am9
The boy next door you've known for years
    Am         Am9     Am     Am9
Has up and made the headlines
    Bb           Bb9    Bb        Bb9
The front page read he lost his head
           Am             Am9       Am      Am9
There'd be nothing like this in a long time

No no now child they must be wrong
All his neighbours say
Johnny was a good boy
Did what he should boy
Just wouldn't act that way

Eb                              F
Yes they say he was everybody's friend
             Ab                                     Bb
But now they put him away and say he just may do it again
Am9

     Am       Am9    Am         Am9
They interviewed the folks he knew
    Am            Am9  Am   Am9
For some dumb reason why (Johnny was a good boy)
Bb           Bb9    Bb           Bb9
Asked his mom where she went wrong
    Am          Am9       Am   Am9
She'll say god knows I've tried (Johnny was a good boy)

Eb                                    F
Good plain boy would just go bad one day
Ab                          
He said he couldn't help himself
                        Bb
But police suspect foul play
Am9

Am
Bb   4x

Eb                                                  F
So now they put him away they say he's not a normal man
    Ab                                               Bb
You never can tell, but well they say he may do it again
Am9

Am      Am9  Am     
Animals all loved him
  Am9  Am      Am9    Am
And he had a way with kids
Bb        Bb9  Bb         Bb9
It was quite a shock to them
          Am          Am9   Am   Am9
When they found out what he did

Eb                                                  F
So now they put him away they say he's not a normal man
    Ab                                               Bb
You never can tell, but well they say he may do it again


Am Am Am Am4 (until fade out)

The F in the chorus-part should be an F#

Eb F#
Yes they say he was everybody's friend
Ab Bb
But now they put him away and say he just may do it again

Though it's still played as described at the bottom of the tab.
