Poor Jenny Lyrics

Artist: The Everly Brothers

I took my little Jenny to a party last night
At ten o'clock it ended in a heckuva fight
When someone hit my Jenny she went out like a light
Poor Jenny

And then some joker went and called the cops on the phone
So everybody scattered out for places unknown
I couldn't carry Jenny so I left her alone
Poor Jenny

Well Jenny had her picture in the paper this mornin'
She made it with a bang
Accordin' to the story in the paper this mornin'
Jenny is the leader of a teenage gang

Jenny has a brother and he's hot on my trail
Her daddy wants to ride me out of town on a rail
I hope I'll be around when Jenny gets out of jail
Poor Jenny

I went downtown to see her, she was locked in a cell
She wasn't very glad to see me, that I could tell
In fact, to tell the truth, she wasn't lookin' too well
Poor Jenny

Her eye was black, her face was red, her hair was a fright
She looked as though she'd been a'cryin' half of the night
I told her I was sorry, she said "Get out of sight"
Poor Jenny

It seems a shame that Jenny had to go get apprehended, a heckuva fate
This party was the first one she ever had attended
It had to happen on our very first date

Jenny has a brother and he's hot on my trail
Her daddy wants to ride me out of town on a rail
I hope I'll be around when Jenny gets out of jail
Poor Jenny

Who ever ditched Jenny doesn't to be born but he does deserve to be the one in jail.I mean how can he just leave her for the cops.He could at least sticked around and told the cops what happened.I don't blame Jennys' brother and pop trying to get that slick out of town.I would of made it my lifes' devotion if I were Jennys' brother and pop.I would track him down and turn him over to the police.Yep.

leave Chris alone. I'd be proud to have him as a brother, bad grammar and all.

Grammar is not indicative of intelligence as it only reflects a level of formal schooling -- but even then, it's a toss-up.

But poor Jenny, huh?
