一首傷感的Country Folk song~Don't cry Joni ~by Conway Twitty and Joni Lee

Conway Twitty原名Harold Lloyd Jenkins。他這個藝名來得不尋常,是從地圖上找出來的︰阿肯色州的“Conway”加上了德克薩斯州的“Twitty”。他先是在搖滾界耕耘,1958年的一曲“It's only make believe”曾榮登榜首。
1964年,Twitty開始了他的鄉村音樂。這首鄉村經典“Don't cry Joni”,是1975年Conway Twitty與他的女兒Joni Lee合唱的,出自專輯“The very best of Conway Twitty”。緩緩的節奏,簡潔的歌詞,敘述了一個男孩和一個女孩的憂傷愛情故事。

Don't cry Joni
Conway Twitty & Joni Lee
*Jimmy please say you'll wait for me
I'll grow up some day you'll see
Saving all my kisses just for you
Signed with love forever true *
Joni was the girl who lived next door
I've known her I guess ten years or more
Joni wrote me a note one day
And this is what she had to say
Slowly I read her note once more
Then I went over to the house next door
Her teardrops fell like rain that day
When I told Joni what I had to say
Joni Joni please don't cry
You'll forget me by and by
You're just 15 I'm 22
And Joni I just can't wait for you
Soon I left our little hometown
Got me a job and try to settle down
But these words kept pounding my memory
The words that Joni said to me
I packed my clothes and I caught a plane
I had to see Joni I had to explain
How my heart was filled with her memories
And ask my Joni if she'd marry me
I ran all the way to the house next door
But things weren't like they were before
My teardrops fell like rain that day
When I heard what Joni had to say
Jimmy Jimmy please don't cry
You'll forget me by and by
It's been five years since you've been gone
Jimmy I've married your best friend , John
