Verse 1

She would meet me in the morning

On my way down to the river

Waiting patient by the chant of every tree

With her feet already dusty

From the pathway to the levi

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

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

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
