Jenny  Steve Taylor

[D] [/G] [D] [/G]  
On a[D] Saturday [A]night all the[D] girls run[A2] free
Singing [Bm]"Bury me[F#m] not on the[Bm] lone pra[F#m]irie"
But [D]where do you[A] go when you [D]finish broken [Esus]hearted?
[A]Back to the[F#] dust where you [Bm]started.
[D]Jenny cut her[G] teeth in a [A]mid-west [F#]shack
As a[Bm] shanty-town[G] girl on the[A] wrong end of the [F#]tracks.
Her [Bm]mama taught her e[G]verything she'd n[A]eed to get al[F#]ong
And her [Bm]Sunday School[G] teacher taught he[F#sus]r right and wrong.[F#]
[A]Raised to be respectable but[G] born too poor
It was[Bm] all she'd eve[Bm(D)]r known but she f[Em]igured there was[F#] more.
[Bm]When she came of [G]age Jenny m[A]ade herself a[F#] vow,
"I'm [Bm]gonna get [G]out and I[F#sus] don't care [F#]how."
1st time only:
[Bm] [G] [A2] [F#7]  
[Bm] [G] [A2] [F#7]  
It appeared every autumn on the courthouse lawn
And the leaves never fell 'til the carnival was gone.
Michael was a barker for an arcade ride
With a smooth talk tongue and a wandering eye.
"Get your tickets here for the Hall -o- Mirror Maze"
If you can't get out, I know a couple' ways.
He caught Jenny's eye but her thoughts looked down.
All she wanted was a ticket going out of that town.
She cried:
[Bm]Oh, how I wanna [G]bury you.
[Bm]Oh, bury you and[G] run away,[A] done away.
[Bm]Oh, how I wanna [G]bury your[A] memory
[Bm] [/] [Em] [/] [F#] Why don't you let me be?
[Bm] [/] [G] [/] [A2] [/] [F#7]  
[Bm] [/] [G] [/] [A]  
Michael stole a kiss first, then he whispered at last
"You're a little old fashioned so forget about your past
"These Bible Belt folks think living is a sin
"So they all start dying the day they're born again"
And there a top the Ferris wheel the colors were a blur
The morning said he loved her but she wasn't really sure.
He made her promise not to leave until he came to get her.
She promised him, but she should have known better.
[Bm] [/] [G] [/] [A2] [/] [F#]Jenny
[C#m] [/] [A] [/] [B] [/] [G#]  
[C#m] [/] [A] [/] [B] [/] [C#m7] [/] [B(D#)]  
On a [E]train - stow [A7]away
[C#m]Jesus loves you still and your [B]mama wants you home
But oh,[E] bridges [A7]burn
When you[C#m] carry your shame and you[B2] think you can't return.[G#]
[C#m]Oh, how I wanna b[A]ury you.
[C#m]Oh, bury you and [A]run away, [B]done away.
[C#m]Oh, how I wanna b[A]ury your [B]memory
[C#m] [/] [F#] [/] [G#]  
When[C#m] they found h[A]er body on a[B] cold dog day[G#m]
It w[C#m]as in a cattl[A]e car, burie[B]d in the hay.[G#]
A no[C#m]te in the poc[A]ket of her c[B]alico dress said[G#m]
"I'm[C#m] guilty as si[A]n but I can'[G#m]t confess."
[B2]Once you know the truth you c[A2]an hide it on a shelf
But [C#m]unless you br[A]ing it down [B]you can't live wit[G#m]h yourself.
In h[C#m]er right hand[A] Jenny held [B2]the Bible of her mo[G#m]ther.
[C#m]Jenny had a[F#m] pistol in t[G#]he other.
