Johnny Rumble:
The Gospel of Saint Johnny

Chapter 1

In the beginning was the Sound, and the Sound was with Music, and the Sound was Music.

2 The same was in the beginning with Music.
3 All things were made by Music; and without Music was not any thing made that was made.
4 In Music was life; and the life was the light of free.
5 And the light shineth in the darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
6 There was a man sent from Regions Beyond, whose name was Johnny.
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all people through him might stay free.
8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every person that cometh into the universe.
10 Music was in the world, and the world was made by Music, and the world knew it not.
11 Music came unto it’s own, and it’s own received it not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of Music, even to them that believe on it’s name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, not of the will of the flesh, not of the will of man, but of Music.
14 And the Sound was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we behold it’s glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Composer,) full of grace and truth.
15 Johnny bare witness of Music, and cried, saying, This was it of what I sang, Music that cometh after me is preferred before me: for it was before me.
16 And of it’s fullness have all we received , and grace for grace
17 For the lawlessness was given by Vicious, but grace and truth came by Marley.
18 No man hath heard Music at any time; only the begotten Children, which is in the bosom of the Composer, it hath declared it.
19 That is the record of Johnny, when the students sent poor and downtrodden from the world, Who art thou?
20 And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Music.
21 And they asked him, What then? Art thou a guitarist? And he saith, I am not, Art thou a drummer? And he answered, No.
22 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? That we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?
23 He said, I am the voice of one yelling into the herd, Make straight the way of Music, as said the Composer
24 And they which were sent were of the un-free.
25And they asked him, and said unto him, Why dance thou then, if thou be not that Music, nor Composer?
26 Johnny answered them, saying, I dance with drink: but here standeth one among you, whom ye know not;
27 Music is it, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose notes we are all worthy to unloose.
28 These things were done in Edmond beyond Ardmore, where Johnny was dancing.
29 The next day Johnny feeleth Music coming unto him, and sangith, Behold the creation of Composer, which giveth freedom to the people
30 This is it of whom I said, After me cometh Music which is preferred before me; for it was before me.
31 And I knew him not; but that he should be made manifest to freedom, therefore I come dancing with drink.
32 And Johnny bare record, saying, I saw the Light descending from heaven like an albatross, and it abode upon him
33 And I knew it not: But it that sent me to dance with drink, the same sang unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Light desceding, and remaining on him, the same is he which danceth with people.
34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Music of the Composer
35 Again the next day after Johnny danced, and two of his comrades;
36 And listening to Music as it played, he saith, Behold the creation of Composer!
37 And the two comrades heard him speak, and they listened to Music.
38 Then Music played, and sang unto them, What seek ye? They said unto it, Where doth come from?
39 It sangth unto them, Dance and see. They danced and saw where it came from, and enjoyed it that day: for it was about the killing hour.
40 One of the two which heard Johnny speak, and followed him, was Jesse, comrade of David.
41 He first findeth her own comrade David, and saith unto him, We have found the freedom.
42 And he brought him to Music. And when Music played for him, it sang, Thou art David, the son of Joseph: thou shalt be called Reverend.
43 The day following Music would go forth into the Villa of Mary, and findeth Richard and sang unto him, Live free.
44 Now Richard was of Yuba, the city of David and Shane
45 Richard findeth Kevin, and saith unto him, We have found freedom, Music, creation of the Composer.
46 And Kevin said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of the heart? Richard saith unto him, Dance and see.
47 Music felt Kevin dancing, and sang unto him, Behold a free-man indeed, in whom is no servitude!
48 Kevin saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Music answered and sang unto him, Before that Richard called thee, when thou wast under the Mart of Walt, I sensed thee.
49 Kevin answered and saith unto it, Thou art the creation of Composer; Thou art the lynchpin of the Free!
50 Music answered and sang unto him, Because I sang unto thee, I sensed thee under the Mart of Walt, believest thou? Thou shalt feel greater things than these.
51 And he sang unto him, I sing unto you, Hereafter ye shall see the yoke open, and the notes of the the Composer ascending and descending upon the Music of man.

Chapter 2

And the third day here was a union in Sacramento of California; and the friend of Music was there:
2 And both Music was called, and his followers, to the union.
3 And when they wanted beer, the Composer of Music wroteth unto it, They have no beer.
4 Music sangth unto Composer, Guinness and Irish floweth, but the hour is not yet come.
5 Composer saith unto the people, Whatsoever Music singeth unto you, dance to it.
6 And there were set there six water jugs of plastic, in the manner to sober the people, containing nothing at all.
7 Music sangth unto them, Fill them with water. And they fill them full.
8 And Music sangeth unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the dry and sober. And they bare it.
9 When the dry of the feast had tasted the water that was made Guinness and Irish, and knew not whence it was: (but the people which drew the water knew;) the dry of the feast called the couple.
10 And toasted unto them, Every man at the beginning doth set forth wine; and when men and women have been decent and courteous, then that which is dry: but thou hast kept the good drink till now!
11 This beginning of miracles did Music in Sacramento of California, and manifested forth it’s freedom; and it’s followers believed and danced.
12 After this Music went east to the Village of Placer, it, and the Composer, and it’s followers and they continued there not many days for there too much wine.
13 And the Prisoners auction was at hand, and Music went down to Folsom.
14 And found in the dancehall those that sold labor and relations and swindlers of currency sitting:
15 And when Music had focused a feedback, he drove them all out of the dancehall, and the labor and the slaves and Prisoners broke free and over threw the tables:;
16 And said unto them, Leave theses free; do not make this place a house of captives.
17 And his followers remembered that it was written, The beats of this house hath free me.
18 Then answered the Prisoners and said unto him, What sound shewest thou unto us, seeing and hearing that thou doest these things?
19 Music answered and sang unto them, Destroy this prison, and we will raise a House of freedom.
20 Then said the Prisoners, This is only home we know.
21 But Music then provided a new House of freedom for all.
22 When therefore the House was risen, Music’s followers remembered that Music sang freedom to them; and they believed the sound, the sound of Music’
23 Now when Music was in Folsom at the hour, on the feast day, many believed in the Sound, when they saw the freedom which it provided.
24 Music committed itself unto all of them, because he knew all of them.
25 And knew not that any should live unfree: for it knew what was in free people.
