Jody and the Kid  Kris Kristofferson

Verse 1:
[A/] She would m[A/]eet me in the morn[E/]ing
On my w[A/]ay down to the ri[E7/]ver
Waiting pa[A7/]tient by [A7/]the chant of every t[E7/]ree[E/]
With her f[A7/]eet already d[E7/]usty
From the p[A7/]athway to the [E7/]levi
And her li[A7/]ttle blue jeans r[E7/]olled up to her k[A/]nees
 Bridge: e ----------------

 E --0--2--4-------

Verse 2:
I'[A]d pay her no attention
As she tagged along beside me
Trying hard to copy everything i [D]did
But i [E7]couldn't keep from smiling
When i hear somebody[E] saying
Lucky under there goes Jody and th[A]e kid
Verse 3:
Ev[A]en after we grew older
We can still be seen together
As we walked along the levi holding h[E7]ands
For as surely as the season she was changin' to a woman
And i lived enough to call myself a [A]man
Verse 4:
An[A]d she often lay beside me
In the coolness of the evening
Ti[A7]l' the morning sun was shining on my [D]bed
And on[E7] times when she was sleeping
I would smile and i'[E]d remember
How they use to call us Jody and the[A] kid
Verse 5:(half a tone higher)
No[Bb]w the words are a little older
And the years have changed the river
Ca[Bb7]use now they're houses where they d[Eb]idn't used to be
And on [F7]Sundays i go walking
Down the pathway to t[F]he levi
With another little girl who follow[Bb]s me
Verse 6:
An[Bb]d it makes the ole folks smile
To see her tag along beside me
Doing little things the way her mama di[F7]d
But it[F7/] gets a little lonesome
When i[F7/] hear somebody sayin'
Lucky under there goes Jody and the [Bb]kid
