LONESOME JENNY


A G
See old Jenny Harley Rockin on the front porch

Bm F#m
A way down on the gravel road

E A G
Spanish lace and coins And an old silver pin

C D
From a half forgotten trip Down to old Mexico

G
A long time ago

G C Am G
Lonesome Jenny what can you say?

F C D
Will Harley your husband , he passed away

G C Am G
And he left you with a son almost grown,

F C D
A farm in weeds, interest on the loan

G E A A9
And memories comin on


Old Jenny Harley she lives in a dream world
Of the days that have passed and gone
When Will worked the fields until the corn it was laid by
And she played with her son upon the grass all day long
Till the night came on

Lonesome Jenny what can you say?
Your son Arley turned bad and ran away
Now the sheriff he does come more often than before
You just say that Arley he don't live here anymore
Then shut the door

Old Jenny Harley walks down to the roadside
And she waits there for the morning mail
That comes from the general store in Denham Springs
And the pension check she gets every month from the government
Without fail

Lonesome Jenny what can you say?
There's no reason for livin anyway
So just drink it down it won't do nobody harm
And the July sun is shinin soft and warm
On a Louisiana farm

enjoy
