Poor Jenny
The Everly Brothers Lyrics


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

Anyone who puts a thumbs down for the Everly Brothers is deaf, these are beautiful harmonies of the highest quality no matter WHAT they sing, or whether you like the song or not. This song is all in good humor and NOT meant to be heavy metal music, or Stairway to Heaven or whatever, get real.

Fred Pearson

THIS SONG WAS JOKE WITH MY LATE OLDEST BROTHER ALTHOUGH I SPELL MINE DIFFERENT

Olad Bol

This was the first I heard of the Everly Bros, on the flip side of Take a Message to Mary. Those tracks became our family anthem in those days...They still bring the nolstalgia even now that I am old

Reed Baylor

a tip: you can watch series at Flixzone. I've been using it for watching loads of movies these days.

I love this song!

Alex Melnick

I fell in love with this song on a Rockpile record. I like this version even more.

Deloss Brown

If Bob Dylan can get a Nobel Prize, Boudleaux and Bryant deserve one. Conception and rhymes are delightful.
