Jenny Was A Keeper
By The Band Of Heathens

CD: Live At Momo's (2006)
Tabbed By Larry Mofle

Play the G with your pinky on the 1st string, ring finger on 6th and index on 5th string.
This way you can do the bass run with your pointer while staying in G

Throughout the song, you can hear the bass run of G to F to F# then G - 
While playing G, use your first finger to drop to the F (first fret),
then 2nd fret (F#) then back to the G...I will show this as G - G/F - G/F# - G



        G                  G/F     G/F#  G               G/F   G/F#  G
Well, I picked up Jenny on highway 10    down around San Antone
G                      G/F  G/F#  G            G             G/F   G/F#  G
Jenny was a pick-a-day run---a----way, she was travelin all alone
    G                 G/F G/F#        G                           G/F G/F#  G
She stole her daddy's Cadi-l-lac, she drove it 'till the tank ran dry
        G             F                     C
Gave it to a man in a broken down van for a sweater and some camel lights


Chorus
                 G
That when I knew Jenny was
             G         G/F  G/F#  G      G/F G/F#  G
Well, I knew Jenny was, she was a keeper
G          G/F     G/F#  G      G/F  G/F#  G
Jenny was, she was all   right
             G         G/F  G/F#  G      G/F G/F#  G
Well, I knew Jenny was, she was a keeper
G          G/F     G/F#  G      G/F  G/F#  G
Jenny was, she was all   right


I pulled into that Texaco, I was runnin low on gas
She hopped up on the shotgun side, she didn't even ask
Said she was headin' out to Hollywood and I was goin South
but I turned that truck around, pointed at the big town and put the hammer down

Chorus

Bridge:
D
Jenny's daddy had some money but he never gave her none
C                           F
Jenny had sticky fingers so Jenny just learned to run


Bridge 2:
Em                     C
Jenny left me standin' outside Santa Fe
F                                      C
I heard she made the big time When she made LA
      Em                            C
Thank God she threw my guitar out before she drove away
        F                                    C  
But she stole my heart, stole my truck and I didn't even get laid
