lyrics

My name is Johnny French
I got a job working hard for the city
I run a dozer and a blade just south of town gettin dirty and gritty
Got me a lady named Suzy you know she's my only one
but here lately shes been restless and crazy as tough as they come.

I said baby whats the problem
what did I do wrong
She said "boy you know exactly whats been going on."

She wants a ring on her finger a diamond on her hand a symbol of commitment from and uncommitted man.
If she dont get it she's walking away
I said "so long Suzy, hate to end it that way."

The next day at work I told the boys about my troubled past
Told them Suzy was gonna leave me If I dont marry her fast
They said Johnny dont be a fool dont get caught up in that trap
If that woman decides to leave you, you know she'll be coming back

I just stood there nodding shaking my head cuz I know just what that little girl has gotta have.

She wants a ring on her finger a diamond on her hand a symbol of commitment from and uncommitted man.
If she dont get it she's walking away
I said "so long Suzy, hate to end it that way."

I know what I've gotta do
I know what I've gotta say

That night when I got home I looked her in the eyes
said baby I'm sorry I was outta my mind
I aint a perfect man but I try to walk that line.

She said boy dont be a fool you know what I need
I aint gonna quit until youre down on one knee.

She wants a ring on her finger a diamond on her hand a symbol of commitment from and uncommitted man.
If she dont get it she's walking away
I said "so long Suzy, hate to end it that way."
