Don’t Cry Joni

Jimmy please say you’ll wait for me
I’ll groe up some day you’ll see
Saving all may kisses just for you
Singed with love forever true

Joni was the girl who lived next door
I’ve known her I guess ten years or more
And his is what she had to say


Slowly I read her more once more
The I want over to the house next door
Her teardrops fell like rain that day
When I told Joni what I had ro say

Joni, Joni please don’t cry
You’ll forget me by and by
You ‘re just fifteen I’m twenty two
And Joni, I just can’t wait for you
Soon I left out little home town
Gor me a job and tried to settle down
But these words kept haunting my memory
The words that Joni said to me


I packed my clothes and I caught a plane
I had to se Joni I had to explain
How may heart was filled with her memory
And ask my Joni if she’d marry me

I ran all the way to the house next door
But things weren’t before like they were before
My teardrops fell like rain that day
When I heard what Joni what to say

Jimmy, Jimmy please don’t cry
You ‘ll forger me by and by
It’s been five years since you’ve been gone
And Jimmy I married your best friend, John
