Jerry Jeff Walker – Jaded Lover lyrics
Chuck Pyle

Well now it won't be but a week or two
'Till you'll be out lovin someone new
Seems like it's happened a hundred times before
But I can see you been spreadin' yourself thin too
It's a lonely stage that we been goin' through
So don't get up I can find my own way to the door

And I can see you are an angel
With wings that won't unfold
Tune up your harp
Polish your old halo
The only kind of man that you ever wanted
Was one that you knew you'd never hold very long
Sittin' there cryin' like I'm the first one to go

You may have thirty lovers behind you
I can feel you but I just can't find you
Seems like you would have found your own self by now
But late at night those lover's tears come back
Faces in your dreams, fingers in your back
Voices of the memories for cryin' out loud


Well it's a lovely sight to see you in your sleep
I believe I'm leavin I'm in too deep
I guess that's easy enough for any man to say
Still we'd never agree if we talked all night
Things are gettin' heavy and I'm travelling light
Goodbye you Jaded Lover you under cover queen for a day


"Well sit on it darlin...."

    Jerry Jeff says, "Think about it, Darlin'" at the end, parodying Jerry Lee Lewis. He doesn't say "Sit on it, darlin'."

    Also, wish we could find definitive Chuck Pyle lyrics. He wrote it. And wrote it as a much more tender song. Jerry Jeff did make some lyrical and melodic changes. Nothing too drastic. Jerry Jeff's version is more snide, more vengeful, and, within that, funny.
