Jenni & Billy Joe (Alternate Title: Rogue River)

Billy Joe went to Rogue River,

thought he was just passing through

that it wouldn’t be too long at all

before he was headed somewhere new

but he met a woman there,

her name was Jenni Sue

They grabbed each others hearts and souls,

that much they both knew

So Billy Joe made the decision to call Rogue River home

& to give up the life of a rolling stone

Every day, they were amazed at the happiness they’d found

& they were glad they had each other when the chips were down

As long as they were a team, come whatever storms life would bring,

they knew they could endure anything

All Good To Me

Decided to return a bit earlier than originally planned, did enjoy my short break though.

Judy was a South Memphis dream

She was a High School beauty queen

Raised by a daddy with a stern and heavy hand

Who never seemed to understand

the things on her heart

or the life she planned

or why she so fervently

Loved a boy in a band

She said, “Daddy, how can I make you see,

that Jay Loves & wants the best for me?”

Her daddy said: “precious girl, I just worry,

I want for your life only sweetness and beauty,

I can’t say I’ll ever understand what you see,

but if he truly Loves you, then all good to me”

Straighten Up & Fly Right

“What’d you do this time?”

Joey’s wife asked as she cried

When she found he was doing time in jail one night

He says:

“Baby, I can’t lie, but I’d rather not specify,

I’ve put you through enough already,

and it’s eating at my heart & mind”

He further says,

“Baby, please don’t cry, I did the crime, I’ll do my time,

but I’ve learned my lesson, once I’m out again,

you’ll see a brand new man

you can count on this promise

I give you my word tonight,

I will straighten up and fly right
