Your Sweet Jenny's Love

Written By: Forest Glen Whitehead

"YOUR SWEET JENNY'S LOVE"

YES SIR MR. JOHNSON
I’M WORKING STEADY EVERY WEEK
AND I’M SAVING UP ALL MY MONEY
SHOULD HAVE THAT NEW PLACE BY NEXT SPRING
I KNOW YOU’VE HEARD ABOUT MY FAMILY
YES SIR, MY DADDY IS STILL IN JAIL
AND MY MOMMA- SHE RAN OFF TO TEXAS
I HAVEN'T HEARD FROM HER SINCE LAST YEAR

CHORUS*
JUDGING BY MY CIRCUMSTANCE
I’LL NEVER STAND A CHANCE
AND NEVER WOULD BE GOOD ENOUGH
THE ONLY THING THAT KEPT ME STRAIGHT
AND GOT ME WHERE I AM TODAY AND
THROUGH THE TIMES THAT WERE SO ROUGH
WAS MY GRANDMA’S WORN OUT BIBLE
AND YOUR SWEET JENNY’S LOVE.

NO SIR, MR. JOHNSON
WELL, I DON’T THINK THAT WE'RE TOO YOUNG
AND I KNOW SHE’S YOUR ONLY DAUGHTER
BUT I’M QUIET SURE SHE’S THE ONE
WE’VE TALKED ABOUT OUR FUTURE
TO BE HONEST SIR, SHE’S ALL I SEE
SO I’M ASKING YOUR PERMISSION
BEFORE I GO AND BUY HER THAT RING

(REPEAT CHORUS)

BRIDGE

THAT BIBLE TAUGHT MY TO FORGIVE
YOUR JENNY TAUGHT HOW TO LIVE
WITHOUT EITHER ONE, I’D BE LOST

(REPEAT CHORUS)

YOUR SWEET JENNY'S LOVE (x2)
