JERRY LYNN
c Angry Johnny Bonesaw Lullaby BMI

When I last left Jerry Lynn she was crying at the bar
I had to go down to the city had to move a couple cars
For old Shelburne Montgomery and his partner Alomar

Jerry Lynn was crying and she begged me please don’t go
Alomar and Shelburne are bad trouble don’t you know
I said I owe them one last favor I’ll be dead if I say no

Jerry Lynn Jerry Lynn
When I found you I thought I’d finally win
Now you’re gone Gone like the wind
Jerry Lynn

Up on Chesterfield Highway the blue lights all came on
Looked for Alomar and Shelburne but they were both long gone
Just me and a trunk of cocaine and a bunch of stolen guns

Jerry Lynn deserved so much better of a man
I would’ve come out guns’a blazin’ I would’ve made my final stand
If I knew that I was never gonna see her face again

They offered me a deal but I didn’t say a word
Three months into my sentence that’s when I finally heard
“bout my darlin’ Jerry Lynn and what they done to her

They took me to the office and the warden sat me down
He told me that our trailer had been burned down to the ground
The car was in the river but her body was not found

CHORUS

I haven’t told nobody what I know for seven years
Tomorrow at eleven I’ll be walking out of here
Walking through the valley but I ain’t got no fear

Tell Montgomery and Alomar that I’ll be stopping by
Tell ‘em Hell is coming there ain’t nowhere they can hide
And if Jerry Lynn is out there somewhere tell her please don’t cry...

Hey Hank

HEY HANK
Angry Johnny c BONESAWLULLABY BMI

Hey Hank what do you think of this one
Is it sad enough do you think it’ll make her cry
Tell me Hank how can I make her listen
Does she know that I’m so lonesome I might die

Does she know that she’s the only thing I live for
Does she know how short and lonesome life can be
Does she know that she’s the only thing I’d die for
Does she know that she’s the only one for me

Hey Hank pass me that jug of whiskey
Can you tell me how to melt her cold cold heart
Hey Hank do you think she’s gonna miss me
When I’m gone for good do you think she’ll fall apart

Do you think she’ll cry and wish that she had kept me
Do you think she’ll bring some flowers to my stone
Or do you think that she will wish she never met me
Do you think that she will always be alone

Hey Hank what do you think of this one
Do you think that I am just wasting my time
Man I ain’t even got a pot to piss in
But I had it all back then when she was mine

There’s a tear in my beer and I’m still crying
I saw the light but now everything is dark
And you know that I ‘m too tired to keep trying
‘cause time ain’t gonna heal this broken heart

So Hank I guess that I’m done ramblin’
Can you save a seat for me right at the bar
A broken heart that’s what I get for gamblin’
It was a wild ride but I didn’t get too far

Hey Hank what do you think of this one
Is it sad enough do you think it’ll make her cry
Tell me Hank how can I make her listen
Does she know that I’m so lonesome I might die
