SHE GAVE HER HEART TO JETHRO
Tom T. Hall

1. I guess you know Jethro went crazy.
We've all been crazy sometimes.
They fixed up his lungs and his fever,
But they could not fix up his mind.
He married a beautiful redhead.
Of women, they say, she's a pearl.
She gave her heart to Jethro
And her body to the whole damn world.

2. Well, Jethro had someone to talk to.
They were monsters and little green men.
He never talked to his woman.
Naw, he spent all his time with his friends.
In the evenings she'd drive off and leave him.
She tossed back her long pretty curls.
She gave her heart to Jethro
And her body to the whole damn world.

3. Some friends came and begged her to leave him.
They said Jethro belongs in a home.
She said, "My heart is Jethro's,
But my God-given body is my own."
Now some of her lovers were strangers.
She gave everybody a whirl.
She gave her heart to Jethro
And her body to the whole damn world.

4. I know some will condemn me for writin'
This song of a man and his wife.
A man's not writin' if he can't relate
All the things that he sees in his life.
I know some will condemn me for cursin',
But much can be said for this girl
Who gave her heart to ol' Jethro
And her body to the whole damn world.
