An amazing singer/dulcimer player named Sarah Morgan has recorded this song on her CD titled, "Run to the Window." Her voice and rendition of the song are STELLAR.

Anyone know why this song is blocked in Canada. I would like to buy it but can't seem to find it. I have also been searching for years as did not know who sang it & my Uncle use to sing it to his kids but couldn't remember it.
Found this site by accident.

Some things like this just cant be put in words. So thanks

I have been trying to find these lyrics for years--THANKS!!! The only time I heard it was at a folk singing that my church had back in the '60s, and I could only remember snatches of the song

Wow, I found the word and who wrote "Johnny" Thank you for having this information.   I have alway been touched by the words.   I made a ring ... Web of time... and placed my diamond in the middle of the web design.   Beauty would not be if it did not fade, So live your life live it every day. I own the album since 1968.

Time.... Entangles and Enslaves...

In case anyone wanted to know, Susan Taylor now goes by Taylor Pie.
As of this writing, she will be going to her 45 High School reunion
on Oct 9th in Corpus Christi Tex for W B Ray High School Reunion.
While I will not be there for all the fun and festivities, I know that all will have a wonderful time. She many even honor everyone with a performance. How sweet is that. My understanding is that she has enjoyed a wonderful music career. Wish I could be there to see her.

I became good friends with Lofton, Donnie and Susan when I worked at KRYS in Corpus Christi in the mid 60's. We would rig mics and they'd sing in the studio and, once in a while, on the front lawn of the station on Staples Street live!

Those were great days, and I remember playing "Time" on the air for the first "time" anywhere...a tip of the hat I've never forgotten. The folks at Columbia were great in getting me that copy.

Since those days I've seen Lofton and Donnie..but never Susan. If they recall a young DJ with limp from wearing a brace..that was me.

thanks a million for this lyrics.
I have looked in many web sites for it without getting results.
I did purchase the LP at the PX back then an this song touched my heart. My hearing is not to clear on the words as I tried to write them down. Now thanks to you I can follow the entire song.
God bless you and
thanks again

Allmusic.com attributes JOHNNY to "Merchant". That would be Michael D. Merchant; BMI.com confirms that he wrote the following songs that The Pozo-Seco Singers recorded:

I'LL BE GONE
JOHNNY
MARY JENKINS
TIME

These can all be found on "Time for the Pozo-Seco Singers: The Complete 1966 Recordings," Rev-Ola CD 272, 2009; and on "Time/I Can Make It with You" (two original LPs reissued as one CD: Collectors' Choice Music 6980, 1997.

It's on the "I Can Make It with You" album. The notes with the CD give no songwriter information.

Okay, there's an agenda here, too. I've looked through the DigiTrad and did a Forum search, as best I know how, and didn't find this tune, one of my favorites done by the Pozo-Seco Singers. But I don't know who wrote it. Anyone?

JOHNNY

Johnny, run to the window.
Daddy's coming through the meadow.
What's that he's holding in his hand?
Johnny, looks like a present
For you; Daddy's bringing home a
Present for his little man.

Johnny, Johnny, run and meet him.
Run laughing to your father; greet him.
Show him you're happy that he's home.
Give him your little baby kisses,
So he may know that this is
His darling son, his very own.

[Bridge:] Johnny, peep into the sack.
Get ready for your thrill.
What has Daddy brought you back?
It's a little bird, lying still.

Johnny, hush your crying.
Little birds can't fly from dying.
Loveliness is powerless to save.
You will learn as you grow older,
Days are shorter; nights get colder.
The web of Time entangles and enslaves.

[Bridge:] Johnny, listen carefully:
Our debts must all be paid.
Beauty would not beauty be,
If it did not fade.

Johnny, don't be a-mourning.
Let the bluebird be your warning.
Enjoy the world; enjoy it while you may.
Each moment that your heart is beating,
Time is passing; time is fleeting.
Live your life; live it every day.

So live your life, Johnny; live it every day.

***

Sarah
