Poor Jenny:The Everly Brothers.
#14 in UK and #22 in USA in 1959.

          (Capo 1st fret.)

[A]                         [F#m]
I took my little Jenny to a party last night

   [F]                         [Dm]
at ten o'clock it ended in a heck of a fight

      [A#]                           [A]
when someone hit my Jenny she went out like a light

[B]                [E]
.   .   ....Poor Jenny!

    [A]                          [F#m]
and then some joker called the cops on the phone

   [F]                           [Dm]
so everybody scattered out for places unknown

  [A#]                        [A]
I couldn't carry Jenny so I left her alone

[B]      [E]            [A]
..............Poor Jenny!

[A]             [G]              [A]          [G]  _  [A]
Jenny had her picture in the paper this morning

she made it with a bang!

  [B]               [A]           [B]          [A]  -  [B]
according to the story in the paper this morning

Jenny is the leader of a teen-age gang!

[A]                            [F#m]
Jenny has a brother and he's hot on my trail

     [F]                            [Dm]
her daddy wants to ride me out of town on a rail

  [A#]                             [A]
I hope I'll be around when Jenny gets out of jail

[B]     [E]           [A]
.............Poor Jenny!

[A]                           [F#m]
I went downtown to see her she was locked in a cell

    [F]                               [Dm]
she wasn't very glad to see me that I could tell

   [A#]                             [A]
in fact to tell the truth she wasn't looking too well

[B]      [E]          [A]
.............Poor Jenny!

[A]                                     [F#m]
her eyes were black her face was red her hair was a fright

         [F]                          [Dm]
she looked as though she'd been up crying half of the night

   [A#]                             [A]
I told her I was sorry she said get outta sight

[B]      [E]           [A]
..............Poor Jenny!

 [A]              [G]               [A]         [G] ----[A]
it seems a shame that Jenny had to go get apprehended

a heck of a fate

  [B]             [A]            [B]            [A]-----[B]
this party was the first one she ever had attended

it had to happen on our very first date

[A]                            [F#m]
Jenny has a brother and he's hot on my trail

    [F]                            [Dm]
her daddy wants to ride me outta town on a rail

  [A#]                             [A]
I hope I'll be around when Jenny gets outta jail

[B]       [E]           [A]
............   Poor Jenny!     FINIS
