Don't Cry Joni  Conway Twitty

My very first attempt at tabbing, but this is a pretty simple song to tab. I should think this is the only
available for this song...I've been busy trying to find one...so I gave up and attempted my own.
Intro: C G (x3)

[C]Jimmy please say you'll [Em]wait for me
[G]I'll grow up somed[C]ay you'll see
[C]Saving all my [(G)]kisses j[F]ust for you
[G]Signed with love for[C]ever true
(Just repeat the chord sequence again, again, again...)
(Actually, the song was originally in D major...I transposed it down my a whole tone to C major 'cos it's
to recognise the chords in C maj...so if you want the original pitch, I'll show the D major chords for the
stanza. Edit intro accordingly.)
[D]Joni was the girl who [F#m]lived next door
[A]I've known her I guess [D]ten years or more
[D]Joni wrote [(A)]me a [G]note one day
[A]And this is what she [D]had to say
(Choose which major you'll like to play in! The rest of the lyrics:)
Jimmy please say you'll wait for me
I'll grow up some day you'll see
Saving all my kisses just for you
Signed with love forever true
Slowly I read her note once more
Then I went over to the house next door
Her teardrops fell like rain that day
When I told Joni what I had to say
Joni Joni please don't cry
You'll forget me by and by
You're just 15 I'm 22
And Joni I just can't wait for you
Soon I left our little hometown
Got me a job and try to settle down
But these words kept pounding my memory
The words that Joni said to me
Jimmy please say you'll wait for me
I'll grow up some day you'll see
Saving all my kisses just for you
Signed with love forever true
I packed my clothes and I caught a plane
I had to see Joni I had to explain
How my heart was filled with her memories
And ask my Joni if she'd marry me
I ran all the way to the house next door
But things weren't like they were before
My teardrops fell like rain that day
When I heard what Joni had to say
Jimmy Jimmy please don't cry
You'll forget me by and by
It's been five years since you've been gone
Jimmy I've married your best friend John
