Jody and the Kid Lyrics

She would meet me in the morning on my way down to the river
Waitin' patient by the China berry tree
With her feet already dusty from the pathway to the levee
And her little blue jeans rolled up to her knees
And I'd paid 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'd hear somebody saying
Looky yonder there goes Jody and the kid
Even after we grew older we could still be seen together
As we walked along the levee holding hands
For as surely as the seasons she was changing to a woman
And I'd lived enough to call myself a man
And she often lay beside me in the coolness of the evening
Till the morning sun was shining on my bed
And at times when she was sleeping I would smile when I'd remember
How they used to call us Jody and the kid

[ piano ]

Now the world's a little older and the years have changed the river
Cause there's houses where they didn't used to be
And on Sundays I go walking down the pathway to the levee
With another little girl who follows me
And it makes the old folks smile to see her tag along beside me
Doin' little things the way her mama did
But it gets a little lonesome when I hear somebody saying
Looky yonder there goes Jody and the kid

1 Thoughts & Meanings

Chinaberry trees & the levee suggest Brownsville Texas. The other kid that follows me appears to be the daughter of the orginal kid with whom a connection is lost through time. The old folks mistaken her with the orginal kid. The meaning of why this is so Lonesome can go no further. It must be felt.
