    (Bobby Ray Appleberry/William Cuomo)

    Johnny Porter was the oldest in his family
    And I remember he was almost twenty one
    Y'know I can't quite explain the situation
    But he broke into his father's truck and stole a gun
    Mother running down the highway screaming
    Johnny it's too bad, oh it's too and it's bad
    And it's too bad

    Well, his father wonders where he got the money
    And he wonders if he got it right or wrong
    Then Johnny killed a man in Pensacola, Florida
    And he caught a freight train and and took off on the run
    Well, run, Johnny, run
    They're rolling right behind you
    Run, Johnny, run
    You know they're gonna find you
    You come out late at night, 'cause you're running for your life

    Hum, Johnny Porter
    Johnny Porter
    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    Well, it's a shame the way you make your mother worry
    And it's hurts inside to sit and watch her cry
    And it will be a long time before she knows the answer
    But it won't be long before she will see ya die
    Well, I was standing in my front door early this morning
    So sad, when I heard my name was said
    Johnny Porter was no good than anybody
    But I hate to see him throw his life away

    Now, run, Johnny, run
    They're rolling right behind you
    Run, Johnny, run
    You know they're gonna find you
    You come out late at night, 'cause you're running for your life

    Well, Johnny Porter, Johnny Porter
    Found him holed up in some dark and dirty building
    Heard his mother begging, "Please, let Johnny go!"
    That's when John fired his pistol
    As a warning and he said,
    "I was born to die by the gun"
    "I was born to die by the gun"
    "I was born to die by the gun"
