written and performed by Kris Kristofferson

Verse 1:
      A/           A/                E/
	She would meet me in the morning
	       A/               E7/
	On my way down to the river
		  A7/      A7/                 E7/ E/
	Waiting patient by the chant of every tree
                  A7/          E7/
	With her feet already dusty
		  A7/           E7/
	From the pathway to the levi
		  A7/              E7/              A/
	And her little blue jeans rolled up to her knees

Verse 2:
	I'd pay her no attention

	As she tagged along beside me
	Trying hard to copy everything i did
	But i couldn't keep from smiling
	When i hear somebody saying
	Lucky under there goes Jody and the kid

Verse 3:
	Even after we grew older

	We can still be seen together
	As we walked along the levi holding hands

	For as surely as the season she was changin' to a woman
	And i lived enough to call myself a man

Verse 4:
	And she often lay beside me

	In the coolness of the evening
	  A7				       D
	Til' the morning sun was shining on my bed
	And on times when she was sleeping
	I would smile and i'd remember
	How they use to call us Jody and the kid

Verse 5:(half a tone higher)
	Now the words are a little older

	And the years have changed the river
	  Bb7				     Eb
	Cause now they're houses where they didn't used to be
	And on Sundays i go walking
	Down the pathway to the levi
	With another little girl who follows me

Verse 6:
	And it makes the ole folks smile

	To see her tag along beside me
	Doing little things the way her mama did
	But it gets a little lonesome
	When i hear somebody sayin'
	Lucky under there goes Jody and the kid
