The barn itself is mythological. Kind of. I have taken a few girls behind a barn or two in my day, but who did they belong to? I may never know. One of those barns could have been owned by someone with the last name Johnson.
However, in this case, for my song, I took the name Johnson and used it for my barn to honor the song, "Raspberry Beret", by Prince.
In his song, "Raspberry Beret", he has a line that reads, "... down by old man Johnson's barn ..." And since I am a fan of Prince, and that particular song, I decided to call the barn in my song, "Johnson's barn".
And now you know the whole story.
