Jody And The Kid

Höfundur lags: Kris Kristofferson Flytjandi: Roy Drusky Sent inn af: Anonymous

[C]She would meet me in the morning on my way down to the river
Waiting patient by the chinaberry [Dm]tree [G7]    
With her [Dm]feet already [G7]dusty from the [Dm]pathway to the [G7]levee
And her [Dm]little blue jeans [G7]rolled up to her [C]knees

And I'd pay her no [Am]attention as she [C]tagged along [Am]beside me
Trying [C]hard to copy everything I [F]did  
But I [Dm]couldn't keep from smiling [G7]when I'd hear [Dm]somebody [G7]saying
Looky [Dm]yonder there goes [G7]Jody and the [C]kid  


Even after we grew older we could still be seen together
As we walked along the levee holding [Dm]hands [G7]    
For as [Dm]surely as the [G7]seasons she was [Dm]changing to a [G7]woman
And [Dm]I lived enough to [G7]call myself a [C]man  

And she often lay [Am]beside me in the [C]coolness of the [Am]evening
Till the [C]morning sun was shining on my [F]bed  
And at [Dm]times when she was [G7]sleeping I would [Dm]smile when I'd [G7]remember
How they [Dm]used to call us [G7]Jody and the [C]kid  

Now the world's a little [Am]older and the [C]years have changed the [Am]river
Cause [C]there are houses where they didn't used to [F]be  
And on [Dm]Sundays I go [G7]walking down the [Dm]pathway to the [G7]levee
With [Dm]another little [G7]girl who follows [C]me  


And it makes the old folks smile to see her tag along beside me
Doing little things the way her mamma [Dm]did [G7]    
But it [Dm]gets a little [G7]lonesome when I [Dm]hear somebody [G7]saying
Looky [Dm]yonder there goes [G7]Jody and the [C]kid  


She would meet me in the morning on my way down to the river
Waiting patient by the chinaberry tree
With her feet already dusty from the pathway to the levee
And her little blue jeans rolled up to her knees

And I'd pay her no attention as she tagged along beside me
Trying hard to copy everything I did
But I couldn't keep from smiling when I'd hear somebody saying
Looky yonder there goes Jody and the kid

Even after we grew older we could still be seen together
As we walked along the levee holding hands
For as surely as the seasons she was changing to a woman
And I lived enough to call myself a man

And she often lay beside me in the coolness of the evening
Till the morning sun was shining on my bed
And at times when she was sleeping I would smile when I'd remember
How they used to call us Jody and the kid

Now the world's a little older and the years have changed the river
Cause there are houses where they didn't used to be
And on Sundays I go walking down the pathway to the levee
With another little girl who follows me

And it makes the old folks smile to see her tag along beside me
Doing little things the way her mamma did
But it gets a little lonesome when I hear somebody saying
Looky yonder there goes Jody and the kid
