    Lyrics

    Old John Robertson
    He wore a Stetson hat
    People everywhere would
    Laugh behind his back

    No one cared to take
    Any time to find out
    What he was all about
    Fear kept them out

    Children laughed and played
    And didn't know his name
    They could tell when he
    Was coming just the same

    Walking slow with old John's
    Crippled wife by his side
    Then she sighed, then she died

    Magic words from him
    Entrancing children's ears
    But they laughed at him
    When he went to hide his tears

    All in vain was no game
    For he'd lost an old friend
    In the end, in the end

    Old John Robertson
    He wore a Stetson hat
    People everywhere would
    Laugh behind his back

    No one cared to take
    Any time to find out
    What he was all about
    Fear kept them out
