Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Jody And The Kid 3   Kris Kristofferson




 I was going looking at the lyrics for Kris Kristofferson's tune; JODY AND 
 THE KID, and I noticed that some of the words weren't quite right.  Here 
 are the correct lyrics.
  
 As for my chords, they could be arguable.  But it has been so long since I 
 heard the original recording that I'm sure I have altered them after many 
 years of performing the tune.  But this arrangement has always worked for 
 me, and sounds quite nice when finger picked.  Ê - R. W. Jones

 She would meet me in the morning 
 ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ AmÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ Cmaj7
 On my way down to the riverÊ 
 ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ CÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ Cmaj7ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ DmÊÊÊÊÊ G7
 Waiting patient by the Chinaberry treeÊ 
 ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ DmÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ Dm#7ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ 
 With her feet already dusty - 
 ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ Dm7ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ G7
 from the pathway to the leveeÊ 
 ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ DmÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ G7ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ C
 And her little blue jeans rolled up to her knees

 Trying hard to copy everything I did.Ê 
 ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ DmÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ G7
 But I couldn't keep from smiling 
 ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ DmÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ G7
 When I hear somebody saying; 
 ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ DmÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ G7ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ CÊÊÊ 
 "Looky yonder, there goes Jody and the kid"
 
 Repeat Intro:
 
 Even after we grew older, we could still be seen together 
 As we walked along the levee holding hands 
 For as surely as the season she was changin' to a woman 
 And I lived enough to call myself a manÊ 
 And she often lay beside me in the coolness of the eveningÊÊ 
 Til' the morning sun was shining on my bedÊ 
 And at times when she was sleeping, 
 I would smile when I'd remember 
 How they use to call us "Jody and the kid"

 Now the world's a little older 
 ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ BbmÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ Dbmaj7
 And the years have changed the river

 And on Sundays I go walking down the pathway to the levee 
 ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ Ebm7ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ Ab7ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ Db
 With another little girl who follows me 
 ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ DbÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ Dbmaj7
 And it makes the old folks smile 
 ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ BbmÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ Dbmaj7
 To see her tag along beside me 
 ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ DbÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ Abm7ÊÊÊ Db7ÊÊÊÊÊ F#
 Doing little things the way her mama did

 But it gets a little lonesome When I hear somebody sayin'

 "Looky yonder, there goes Jody and the kid"Ê
