Dale Watson - Sweet Jessie Brown


G                                                                     Am      
She used to dream that She would be a celebrity and known for miles around
                                            D                              G     
She'd dress up in her linens She'd sit and pretend She was a queen in Her gown
But I was just a boy from down the road and I was known as trouble in town
                                             D                                 G    
Thought to be the man who took the hand and changed the plans of sweet Jessie Brown

C            G     
Sweet Jessie Brown
          Am          D                 
Would you look at you now

She graduated early and to prep school we new surely She was bound

Everybody tried to warn Her I would be the one to try to bring Her down

Because I told Her there's a hole world out there for the two of Us and it's waitin to be found

And knew to be the man who would take the hand and change the plans of sweet Jessie Brown



On a road bound for nowhere a baby's cryin was the only sound

Then the baby stopped it's crying and Jessies world came tumblin to the ground

I found a pill box on the dresser and note that She died holding in Her hand

It read I goodbye dear I love you and I'm sorry signed Jessie Brown
