SHE GAVE HER HEART TO JETHRO (Tom T. Hall) Tom T. Hall - 1971 I guess you know Jethro went crazy We've all been crazy sometimes They fixed up his lungs and his fever But they could not fix up his mind He married a beautiful redhead Of women they say she's a pearl She gave her heart to Jethro And her body to the whole damned world Well, Jethro had someone to talk to They were monsters and little green men He never talked to his woman No, he spent all his time with his friends In the evenings she'd drive off and leave him She tossed back her long pretty curls She gave her heart to Jethro And her body to the whole damned world Some friends came and begged her to leave him They said Jethro belongs in a home She said my heart is Jethro's But my God-given body is my own Now some of her lovers were strangers She gave everybody a whirl She gave her heart to Jethro And her body to the whole damned world I know some will condemn me for writin' This song of a man and his wife A man's not writin' if he can't relate All the things that he sees in his life I know some will condemn me for cursin' But much can be said for this girl Who gave her heart to ol' Jethro And her body to the whole damned world (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2012)
