BEFORE JESSE DIED (Tom T. Hall) Tom T. Hall - 1984 She sat on the barstool, she smoked and she drank Till the past became clear and the future went blank In the past she regains all her beauty and pride But that was before Jesse died Jessie, her husband, was small, he was lean Drove a big yellow earth movin' machine They had a new pick-up, the joy of their lives But that was before Jesse died She used to go shoppin' for pretty young clothes Had her hair done on Thursdays and her nails and her toes And on weekends they'd dance til the first mornin' light But that was before Jesse died On weekends they'd cook out and watch all the games Jessie knew all of the best players names The sun shined so bright, it put tears in your eyes But that was before Jesse died When Jessie got sick he was thirty years old He said it ain't nothin', but a little light cold And he worked till the pain wouldn't ease or subside And that was before Jesse died Now she sits on the stool with a glass in her hand She smiles and she talks to a travelin' man And there was a time she would turn down a ride But that was before Jesse died She sat on the barstool, she smoked and she drank Till the past became clear and the future went blank In the past she regains all her beauty and pride But that was before Jesse died (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2018)
