Conway Twitty – Don't Cry Joni lyrics

Woman- Jimmy please say you'll wait for me
I'll grow up someday you'll see
Saving all my kisses just for you
Signed with love forever true.

Man - Joni was the girl who lived next door
I've known her I guess ten years or more.
Joni wrote me a note one day.
And this is what she had to say.

Woman-Jimmy please say you'll wait for me
I'll grow up someday you'll see
Saving all my kisses just for you
Signed with love forever true.

Man- Slowly I read her note once more
Then I went over to the house next door
Her tear-drops fell like rain that day
When I told Joni what I had to say.

Man- Joni, Joni please don't cry
You'll forget me by and by
You're just fifteen and I'm twenty two,
And Joni I just can't wait for you.

Man - Soon I left out little home town,
Got me a job and tried to settle down
But these words kept haunting my memory,
The words that Joni said to me.

Woman- Jimmy please say you'll wait for me
I'll grow up some day you'll see
Saving all my kisses just for you
Signed with love forever true.

Man - I packed my clothes and I caught a plane
And I had to see Joni. I had to explain,
How my heart was filled with her memory
And ask my Joni if she marry me

I ran all the way to the house next door
But things weren't like they were before
My tear-drops fell like rain that day
When I heard what Joni had to say.

Woman- Jimmy, Jimmy please don't cry
You'll forget me by and by.
It's been five years since you've been gone
Jimmy, I - (married) - your best friend John.

    This reminded me of my ex. He's 8 years older than me and we fell in within nearly 2 years. Then I had to go study abroad. He stayed at home and sadly that he couldn't wait for me. I thought our love is gonna survive until I find out the truth. I can't make peace with the past until now. I sang this song to him at the fist and the last time we ever saw each other. I also learned that one of his friends love me until now.
