Tom T. Hall – She Gave Her Heart To Jethro lyrics

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

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

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

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
