My son john was a good boy and good to me,

A chord diagramA augmentedA                A chord diagramE MajorE             A chord diagramA augmentedA
when we had hard times well he stood by me,

        A chord diagramD MajorD           A chord diagramE MajorE               A chord diagramA augmentedA
we were in work and out of work and on the go,

      A chord diagramD MajorD              A chord diagramA augmentedA                A chord diagramE MajorE
if he had complaints i never heard of one,

         A chord diagramD MajorD            A chord diagramE MajorE              A chord diagramA augmentedA
he would pitch in and help me like a full grown man,

       A chord diagramB minorBm      A chord diagramE MajorE        A chord diagramA augmentedA         A chord diagramE MajorE    A chord diagramA augmentedA
My son john,       john my son,

A chord diagramA augmentedA                   A chord diagramE MajorE              A chord diagramA augmentedA
My son john went to College and he made his way,

A chord diagramA augmentedA                 A chord diagramE MajorE            A chord diagramA augmentedA
had to earn every penny but he paid his way,

          A chord diagramD MajorD           A chord diagramE MajorE            A chord diagramA augmentedA
he worked summers and holidays and through the year,

       A chord diagramD MajorD           A chord diagramA augmentedA                A chord diagramE MajorE
and it was no easy struggle that he won,

       A chord diagramD MajorD              A chord diagramE MajorE                   A chord diagramA augmentedA
but he laughed at the ones who thought he had it hard,

       A chord diagramB minorBm      A chord diagramE MajorE        A chord diagramA augmentedA         A chord diagramE MajorE    A chord diagramA augmentedA
My son John,       John my son,

A chord diagramA augmentedA                   A chord diagramE MajorE           A chord diagramA augmentedA
My son John got his uniform and went away,

A chord diagramA augmentedA                   A chord diagramE MajorE               A chord diagramA augmentedA
With a band playing marches he want away,

       A chord diagramD MajorD          A chord diagramE MajorE              A chord diagramA augmentedA
And he wrote me a letter when he had the time,

       A chord diagramD MajorD          A chord diagramA augmentedA              A chord diagramE MajorE
He was losing his buddies one by one,

      A chord diagramD MajorD                A chord diagramE MajorE             A chord diagramA augmentedA
And I prayed and tried not to read between the lines,

       A chord diagramB minorBm     A chord diagramE MajorE        A chord diagramA augmentedA         A chord diagramE MajorE    A chord diagramA augmentedA
My son John,      John my son,

A chord diagramA augmentedA                     A chord diagramE MajorE               A chord diagramA augmentedA
My son John Came home yesterday, he s here to stay,

A chord diagramA augmentedA                 A chord diagramE MajorE             A chord diagramA augmentedA
Not a word to his father have I heard him say,

   A chord diagramD MajorD             A chord diagramE MajorE             A chord diagramA augmentedA
He seems glad to be home but I can t be sure,

       A chord diagramD MajorD         A chord diagramA augmentedA                  A chord diagramE MajorE
When I asked him what he s seen and done,

        A chord diagramD MajorD         A chord diagramE MajorE              A chord diagramA augmentedA
He went up to his bedroom and he closed the door,

       A chord diagramB minorBm     A chord diagramE MajorE        A chord diagramA augmentedA
My son John,      John my son,

        A chord diagramD MajorD         A chord diagramE MajorE              A chord diagramA augmentedA
He went up to his bedroom and he closed the door,

       A chord diagramB minorBm     A chord diagramE MajorE        A chord diagramA augmentedA           A chord diagramA augmentedA   A chord diagramA augmentedA
My son John,      John my son,
