She Gave Her Heart To Jethro

Song Author Tom T. Hall Performer: Tom T. Hall Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]I guess you know [D7]Jethro went [G]crazy
We've all been [D7]crazy some[G]times
They [C]fixed up his lungs and his [G]fever [Em]    
But [A7]they could not fix up his [D7]mind   

He [G]married a [D7]beautiful [G]redhead
Of [G7]women they say she's a [C]pearl
She gave her heart to [G]Jethro [Em]    
And her [G]body to the [D7]whole damned [G]world

Well Jethro had [D7]someone to [G]talk to
They were monsters and [D7]little green [G]men  
[C]He never talked to his [G]woman [Em]    
Now he [A7]spent all his time with his [D7]friends

In the [G]evenings she'd [D7]drive off and [G]leave him
She [G7]tossed back her long pretty [C]curls
She gave her heart to [G]Jethro[Em]    
And her [G]body to the [D7]whole damned [G]world

Some friends came and [D7]begged her to [G]leave him
They said Jethro [D7]belongs in a [G]home
She [C]said my heart is [G]Jethro's [Em]    
But [A7]my God-given body is my [D7]own   

Now [G]some of her [D7]lovers were [G]strangers
[G7]She gave everybody a [C]whirl
She gave her heart to [G]Jethro [Em]    
And her [G]body to the [D7]whole damned [G]world

I know some will [D7]condemn me for [G]writin'
This song of a [D7]man and his [G]wife
A [C]man's not writin' if [G]he can't re[Em]late   
[A7]All the things that he sees in his [D7]life   

I [G]know some will [D7]condemn me for [G]cursin'
But [G7]much can be said for this [C]girl
Who gave her heart to ol' [G]Jethro [Em]    
And her [G]body to the [D7]whole damned [G]world


I guess you know Jethro went crazy
We've all been crazy sometimes
They fixed up his lungs and his fever
But they could not fix up his mind

He married a beautiful redhead
Of women they say she's a pearl
She gave her heart to Jethro
And her body to the whole damned world

Well Jethro had someone to talk to
They were monsters and little green men
He never talked to his woman
Now he spent all his time with his friends

In the evenings she'd drive off and leave him
She tossed back her long pretty curls
She gave her heart to Jethro
And her body to the whole damned world

Some friends came and begged her to leave him
They said Jethro belongs in a home
She said my heart is Jethro's
But my God-given body is my own

Now some of her lovers were strangers
She gave everybody a whirl
She gave her heart to Jethro
And her body to the whole damned world

I know some will condemn me for writin'
This song of a man and his wife
A man's not writin' if he can't relate
All the things that he sees in his life

I know some will condemn me for cursin'
But much can be said for this girl
Who gave her heart to ol' Jethro
And her body to the whole damned world
