“It’s True”: A love song by Johnny O’Neal

A few years ago, I played bass guitar for a whole year with Johnny O’Neal. We performed mostly in Monroe, but we also made it to New Orleans and Shreveport. Once, we were the first act in Pontchachoula’s in New Orleans before Dr. John performed. Johnny is one of the finest musicians I’ve ever known, as well as a genuine person. We had quite a few adventures together that year, and I learned so much. Anyway, I decided to post today the lyrics of one of his original songs. This was always one of my favorites. It’s from the CD we made that was recorded live at the Barron Olive bar here in Monroe.
