Paul Jones - Poor Jenny
Misc Unsigned Bands
Poor Jenny:Paul Jones. Released on COLUMBIA Records in 1967 and didn't chart. (Cover of Everly Brothers hit of 1959, which I think is far superior. It hit #14 in UK and #22 on BB Hot 100. There was another version by the Everly Brothers recorded on CADENCE in 1957 but it wasn't released. The '59 version is much faster and sounds waaay better.) INTRO: Bb F #1. Bb Gm Gb Took my little Jenny to a party last night, at ten o'clock Ebm it ended in a heck of a fight. B Bb Gm7 C F When someone hit my Jenny she went out like a light, Poor Jenny. Bb Gm7 And then some joker went and called the cops on the phone, Gb Eb Ebm so everybody scattered out for places unknown. B Bbm Gm7 C F Bb I couldn't carry Jenny so I left her alone....Poor Jenny.

INTERLUDE: Bb F #2. Bb Gm7 Gb I went downtown to see her, she was locked in a cell, she wasn't Ebm very glad to see me, that I could tell. B Bb Gm7 C F In fact, to tell the truth, she wasn't lookin' too well, Poor Jenny. Bb Gm7 Her eye was black, her face was red, her hair was a fright, she Gb Ebm looked as though she'd been up cryin' half of the night. B Bb Gm7 C F Bb I told her I was sorry, she said, get out of sight!....Poor Jenny. BRIDGE: Bb Ab Bb Ab Eb It seems a shame that Jenny had to go get apprehended, a heck of a fate.
