YouTube has a recording of Wayne Raney singing LOST JOHN BOOGIE. Here is my transcription:


LOST JOHN BOOGIE
Wayne Raney

1. Well, the funniest sight that I ever did see
Was Lost John a-boogiein' through Tennessee.
He had no shoes for to cover his feet,
Beggin' the women for his bread an' meat.
One woman said, "Get away from here, John,
'Fore I take my broom an' hurry you on."

CHORUS: He's long gone. (Where did he go?)
He boogied his way through Mexico.

2. Lost John liked to boogie when things was right.
He'd boogie all day an' he'd boogie all night,
Till at last when his feet got cold,
He said, "Take me home, boys. I'm a little too old." CHORUS

3. Well, the last thing I saw of Long Lost John,
He had a gal with a nose as long as your arm.
A long loose chin an' her toes turned in,
She could drink ten gallon o' red-hot gin.

There are lots more versions of LOST JOHN / LONG LOST JOHN etc. (but not the one posted above) in this thread: Lyr Req: Long John / Lost John and a few more here: Lyr Add: Lost John. Some of those might be duplicates; I haven't checked.
