Johnny Is Nie Dood Nie
Koos Kombuis - Johnny is nie dood nie

First of all, I'd like to say that this tab is all my own work, 
but most of the credit (if not all) must go to my good friend, 
Werner Brand, who showed me how tyo play to this absolutely great 
Afrikaans song. If you like it, it's cool, if you dont, that's also 
cool, and if you don't know you feel, decide quickly.

Verse 1:
G              D           Em            C
onderkant die wind by die spoor, by die spoor
          G             D        Em        C
hang jou reuk in die lug wat na trane ruik
  G            D           Em            C
onderkant die wind by die spoor, by die spoor
 G             D           Em       C
onder hierdie maan lê my vriend se lyk

Chorus: 
 G                      D
Johnny was 'n cowboy, Johnny was 'n rushkop
  Em                            C
Johnny, Johnny, Johnny maak 'n groot geraas
 G                      D
Johnny was 'n genius, Johnny was 'n fokkop
 Em                         C
Johnny, Johnny stadig nou, Johnny, Johnny kap dit flou
 G             D          Em           C
Johnny is nie dood nie, Johnny is nie dood nie
 D             D                  Em
Johnny is nie dood nie, hy's net uitgepaas

Verse 2:
 G                     D
met 'n storie op die voorblad, 
         Em           C           G      D  Em  C
met 'n kiekie van 'n kar, net 'n byline
          G     D         Em   C
maar by nommer 22 is dit stil
     G     D           Em    C          G      D  Em  C     
by nommer 22 was die laaste pil in die pipeline 
        G       D  Em  C
in die pipeline

About the artist behind Johnny Is Nie Dood Nie:

Koos Kombuis (born André le Roux du Toit, November 5, 1954) is a South African musician, singer, songwriter and writer who became famous as part of a group of anti-establishment maverick Afrikaans musicians, who, under the collective name of Voëlvry (directly translated meaning "Free as a bird"; in Afrikaans "voëlvry" is synonymous to the word "fugitive"), toured campuses across South Africa in the 1980s, to "liberate Afrikaans from the shackles of its past". Fellow musicians of this movement were Johannes Kerkorrel and Bernoldus Niemand (James Phillips).

They were a younger generation Afrikaner who didn't believe in apartheid and didn't toe the ruling National Party line. This movement coined the term Alternative Afrikaner for themselves. Kombuis is somewhat of an icon among certain South Africans who consider him the guru of Afrikaans rock music and father of non-conformist Afrikaans culture.
