Jerry Jeff Walker — For Little Jessie lyrics

Jerry Jeff Walker

Sometimes out here on this road
Too late to call I see the telephone
My mind's a line running straight for home
And I can see her lying soft and warm

She knows her daddy sings
We know all that the money brings
She thinks our world must be everything
Does she know, she's the precious thing

You and I now we've had our ups and downs
Drove our love nearly out of bounds
Can't go back to a lot of towns
We were doing what was going round


Two adults lost in a world alone
Take a little love and make a happy home
The little hands brush your wavy hair
And say goodbye and leave you standing there

[ Lyrics from: ]
