By Waylon Jennings
From "Singer of Sad Songs," 1970. Available on Bear Family
Records' "Waylon Jennings - The Journey: Six Strings Away."
Transcribed by Casey Newbold-Kerr (
[F]Widow Jones couldn't[Bb] make it on her[F] own
Frank was 'lectrified, leaving s[Bb]ix kids half g[F]rown
In her misery, s[Am]he sent for me, t[Bbm]he Singer of Sad Songs
And I sy[F]mpathized and eu[C]logized Frank Jone[F]s
[(F)]And she cried, "Singer of [Bb]Sad Songs,
[F]I need your services to[C]day!
[F]Doctor of [Bb]broken hearts,
Wash your c[F]lothes and mend your s[C]ocks for your pa[F]y."
VERSE TWO (Key changes to "G"):
[G]Farmer Brown had always [C]dreamed of city l[G]ights
Miniskirts on pretty g[C]irls were in his sight[G]s
So, one early morn[Bm], he left his corn to har[Cm]vest a field of sin
Mrs. Bro[G]wn called me sh[D]ortly after 3 [G]AM
[(G)]And she cried, "Singer of[C] Sad Songs,
[G]I need your services [D]today!
[G]Doctor of bro[C]ken hearts,
Got some e[G]arly hybrid [D]corn for your p[G]ay."
[A]Lovely Lucy sat there,[D] sipping a glass of[A] wine
She was at the church, w[D]aitin' till after n[A]ine
But the groom to be was s[C#m]omewhere free with a [Dm]case of yellow spine
Lovely Luc[A]y, she's still a v[E]irgin at s[A]urprise
[(A)]And she cried, "Singer of Sad Songs[D],
[A]I need your services t[E]oday!
[A]Doctor of [D]broken hearts,
Got a slig[A]htly used d[E]iamond for your pay[D]..."[A]
