Me like lotsa other folks are fans of his. You did a great job on this song.
The lyrics are along the feel he would have written. Your adding to his ongoing legend.

Note in my signature. Listened to him one night how the song was written.
Short version: They were in vehicles heading north to Wyoming from Denver I beleive.
He made a passing comment about soon being home. Hence the song he wrote on the spot.
Had to go back and edit my signature quote to correct.

Thanks for your hard work and sharing with us all.

Hi again;
Thanks to all for your comments.I love working with B.I.A.B & real tracks,it sure makes life simple when you just wanta do demos.Sometimes I find it frustrating,when you can't get just what you are looking for.I still would love to have some real strings.I have a lot of original tune looking forward to putting up on the site.Thanks to this forum for the ways and means for doing just that.Thanks again.Talk again later.

This is definitely not a criticism but I'm just curious what the song would sound like with Luther Perkins' "Boom-Chucka" guitar style. I would definitely love to hear that just for fun. It would certainly identify the "Johnny" in the title for the uninitiated listener.

I just realized, someone purloined my dancing chicken. I think turnabout is fair play 'cause I pilfered it from the Audio Minds site many years ago. (Snicker)
