She Gave Her Heart To Jethro
By Tom T. Hall
Written by Tom T. Hall
Album: We All Got Together And... (1972)
Tabbed by Larry Mofle
9/6/21

Capo 4

G                D           G
I guess you know Jethro went crazy
               D         G
We've all been crazy sometimes
     C                          G     Em
They fixed up his lungs and his fever
    A7                        D
But they could not fix up his mind

   G         D        G
He married a beautiful redhead
   G          G7          C
Of women they say she's a pearl
    C                 G      Em
She gave her heart to Jethro
        G           D            G
And her body to the whole damned world


Well Jethro had someone to talk to
They were monsters and little green men
He never talked to his woman
Now 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 damned 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 damned world



Key change to G# (move capo to 5)

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 damned world
