Jody and the kid Lyrics

Jody and the kid by Kris Kristofferson  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
Jody and the kid She would meet me in the morning
On my way down to the river
Waiting patient by the channaberry tree
With her feet already dusty
Fromt he pathway to the levy
and her little blue jeans rolled up to her knees
I'd pay her no attention as she tagged along beside me
Tryin' hard to copy everything I did
But I couldn't keep from smilin'
When I'd hear somebody sayin',
"Looka yonder there goes Jodie and the kid."

Even after we grew older
We could still be seen together
As we walked along the levy holdin' hands
For as surely as the seasons,
She was change into a woman
And I'd learned enough to call myself a man
And she'd often lay beside me
In the coolness of the evening
Till the morning sun was shinin' on my bed
And at times when she was sleepin
I would smile and I'd remember
How they used to call us Jodie and the kid.

Now the world's a little older
And the rivers changed a little
Cos there's houses where there didn't used to be
And on Sundays I go walking
Down the pathway to the levy
And another little girl who follows me
And it makes the old folks smile
To see her tag along beside me
Doing little things the way her mama did
But it gets a little lonesome
When I hear somebody sayin',
"Looka yonder there goes Jodie and the kid."
