Verse 1:
         Bb5                        G5
      I took my little Jenny to a party last night
         Gb5                        Eb5
      At ten o'clock it ended in a heck of a fight
            Cb5                           Bb5          G5
      When someone hit my Jenny she went out like a light
      C5      F5
         Poor Jenny

Verse 2:

      And then some joker went and called the cops on the phone

      So everybody scattered out for places unknown

      I couldn't carry Jenny so I left her alone
      C5  F5       Bb5
              Poor Jenny

      Well, Jenny had her picture in the paper this morning
         She made it with a bang
         C5             Bb5            C5         Bb5  C5
      According to the story in the paper this morning
       F5 [n c ]                 F5
      Jenny is the leader of a teenage gang

Verse 3:

      Jenny has a brother and he's hot on my trail

      Her daddy wants to ride me out of town on a rail

      I hope I'll be around when Jenny gets out of jail
      C5  F5       Bb5
              Poor Jenny

[repeat intro]

Verse 4:

      I went downtown to see her, she was locked in a cell

      She wasn't very glad to see me, that I can tell

      In fact, to tell the truth she wasn't looking too well

      Poor Jenny

Verse 5:

      Her eye was black, her face was red, hair was a fright

      It looked as though she'd been a-cryin' half of the night

      I told her I was sorry, she said "get out of sight"

      Poor Jenny

Bridge 2:

      It seems a shame that Jenny had to go get apprehended

      A heck of a fate

      This party was the first one that she ever had attended

      It had to happen on our very first date

[repeat verse 3]
