written and performed by Kris Kristofferson

Verse 1:
A/ A/ E/
She would meet me in the morning
A/ E7/
On my way down to the river
A7/ A7/ E7/ E/
Waiting patient by the chant of every tree
A7/ E7/
With her feet already dusty
A7/ E7/
From the pathway to the levi
A7/ E7/ A/
And her little blue jeans rolled up to her knees

Verse 2:
A
I'd pay her no attention

As she tagged along beside me
D
Trying hard to copy everything i did
E7
But i couldn't keep from smiling
E
When i hear somebody saying
A
Lucky under there goes Jody and the kid

Verse 3:
A
Even after we grew older

We can still be seen together
E7
As we walked along the levi holding hands

For as surely as the season she was changin' to a woman
A
And i lived enough to call myself a man

Verse 4:
A
And she often lay beside me

In the coolness of the evening
A7 D
Til' the morning sun was shining on my bed
E7
And on times when she was sleeping
E
I would smile and i'd remember
A
How they use to call us Jody and the kid

Verse 5:(half a tone higher)
Bb
Now the words are a little older

And the years have changed the river
Bb7 Eb
Cause now they're houses where they didn't used to be
F7
And on Sundays i go walking
F
Down the pathway to the levi
Bb
With another little girl who follows me

Verse 6:
Bb
And it makes the ole folks smile

To see her tag along beside me
F7
Doing little things the way her mama did
F7/
But it gets a little lonesome
F7/
When i hear somebody sayin'
Bb
Lucky under there goes Jody and the kid
