Subject: Don't Cry, Joni
DON T CRY, JONI Conway Twitty (Chorus 1) (D) Jimmy, please say you ll (A) wait for me (A7) I ll grow up some (D) day you ll see (D7) Saving all my kisses (G) just for you (A) Signed with love for (A7) ever (D) true. (D) Joni was the girl who (A) lived next door I ve known her, I guess, ten (D) years or more (D7) Joni wrote me a (G) note one day (A) And this is what she (A7) had to (D) say (Chorus 1) (D) Slowly I read her (A) note once more Then (A7) I went over to the (D) house next door Her (D7) teardrops fell like (G) rain that day When (A) I told Joni what I (A7) had to (D) say. (Chorus 2) (D) Joni, Joni, (A) please don t cry (A7) You ll forget me (D) by and by You re (D7) just fifteen, I m (G) twenty-two And (A) Joni, I just can t (A7) wait for (D) you.
(D) Soon I left our (A) little hometown (A7) Got me a job and tried to (D) settle down But the (D7) words kept haunting my (G) memory (A) The words that Joni (A7) said to (D) me (Chorus 1) (D) I packed my clothes and I (A) caught a plane I (A7) had to see Joni, I (D) had to explain How my (D7) heart was filled with her (G) memory (A) And ask my Joni if she d (A7) marry (D) me (D) I ran all the way to the (A) house next door But (A7) things weren t like they (D) were before. My (D7) teardrops fell like (G) rain that day When (A) I heard what Joni (A7) had to (D) say (Chorus 3) (D) Jimmy, Jimmy, (A) please don t cry (A7) You ll forget me (D) by and by It s (D7) been five years since (G) you ve been gone (A) Jimmy, I married your (A7) best friend (D) John. As always, this may not be exactly right, but should get you started. I leave out the apostrophes because they come up funny when they transfer. Have fun. Lee
