Sonya Kitchell – Jerry lyrics


Oh, sweet Jerry
The man that she would marry
He'd say, "Oh, darling don't you cry
For I will always be by your side"

She took Jerry for granted
In her life he was firmly planted
She'd say, "oh, sometimes I wonder why
Jerry always stays by my side"

Jerry worked hard everyday
He worked so the bills could be paid
While she dreamed of a better life
Where she was another man's wife

Then early one October morning
She left Jerry with no warning
He said, " oh, darling won't you stay"
And she said, " Jerry, I've got to get away"

Oh, sweet Jerry
The weight he could not carry
And oh, oh how he tried
And when she left oh how he cried

And weeks passed by and the phone rang
The voice on the line was broken
She said, " oh the world is, oh so cold
Jerry, your love kept me warm and help me to be bold"

And Jerry thought she would come home
For without her, he felt so alone
She never did, and he always wondered why
And when he felt sad, he hid it with a smiles lie

And years have passed on by now
And Jerry, he gets by somehow
But he still whispers, "oh Darling don't you cry
For I will always be by your side"
