Now this here’s a story about an escaped convict

Its got a great chorus so join in.
Sing it for ‘em boys! Yeah!

He’s a long long long gone,

(Here’s what happened to him)

Now Lost John standing on the railroad track
Waiting for the freight train to come back
The freight train come back never made a stop.
Lost John thought he’d have to ride on top,

He’s a long long long gone,
Now he’s long long long gone yeah

Sat there quiet as a mouse
Said I’m Mr Long John be my Friend
Be my friend until the end Cos, I’m…

Hey, Lost John needs a pair of shoes of his own
The finest shoes that ever were worn
Heels on the front, heels behind
You couldn’t tell which way Lost John had gone, now he’s…

long long long gone,
He’s a long long long gone

and they caught Lost John put him in the pen
The summer been a going now he’s out again
If anybody ask you who sung this song
Tell them Lonnie Donegan been here and gone

long long long gone,
Now I’m long long long gone
