Johnny Guitar

Johnny Guitar


What an awesome film, Johnny Guitar is!  A 1954 movie/film starring Joan Crawford and Sterling Hayden.  A western type drama, packed with action - two women that have a power struggle and jealousy going on, cowboys drinking whiskey, horses, gun fights, fires, hangings and the age old love story of a woman Vienna who has become hard as nails but has a soft spot for her heart and soul's yearning Johnny Guitar.  A classic film that can be seen over and over.  The song for the film was sung by Peggy Lee, here are the lyrics and a video that shows scenes of the movie.

Johnny Guitar
Songwriters: Peggy Lee / Victor Young

Play the guitar, play it again, my Johnny
Maybe you're cold but you're so warm inside
I was always a fool for my Johnny
For the one they call Johnny Guitar
Play it again, Johnny Guitar

What if you go, what if you stay, I love you
But if you're cruel, you can be kind, I know
There was never a man like my Johnny
Like the one they call Johnny Guitar

There was never a man like my Johnny
Like the one they call Johnny Guitar
Play it again, Johnny Guitar
