Conway Twitty

Conway Twitty - Don't Cry Joni

rate me

Woman- Jimmy please say you'll wait for me

I'll grow up someday you'll see

Saving all my kisses just for you

Signed with love forever true.

Man - 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.

Woman-Jimmy please say you'll wait for me

I'll grow up someday you'll see

Saving all my kisses just for you

Signed with love forever true.

Man- 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.

Man- Joni, Joni please don't cry

You'll forget me by and by

You're just fifteen and I'm twenty two,

and Joni I just can't wait for you.

Man - Soon I left our little home town,

Got me a job and tried to settle down

But these words kept haunting my memory,

the words that Joni said to me.

Woman- 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.

Man - I packed my clothes and I caught a plane

and I had to see Joni. I had to explain,

how my heart was filled with her memory

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.

Woman- 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.
