Jefferson Jericho Blues

  • Well poor Tom Jefferson
    He loved the little maid out back
    Midnight creepin' out to the servant's shack
    Kept a secret under the bed
    Wrapped in a burlap sack

    Well I drove all day and night
    Out to Jericho
    But in my second mind
    I knew it was time to go
    Yeah and I still get nervous every time
    That bugle blows

    Well she ain't no good for me
    But I just can't let go
    If I sit here thinkin'
    My thoughts will overflow
    And I can't keep from cryin'
    Can't keep time from movin' slow Writer/s: TOM PETTY
