Jenny Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

It was when I rode off in my daydreams
Chasing that vision of light
It was then I got caught in the jet stream
And I dropped through a hole in the night

Then I knew it's not you that I run from
I saw each of us living alone
And I prayed that you still could be waiting
That's when I started for home

Oh my Jenny, oh my Jenny
Oh my Jenny, my love
Oh my Jenny, oh my Jenny
You are my rainbow above

I have seen a great city in the darkness
Dream lady dressed in cold concrete
And I've seen the City of Angles
With the names of its dead in the street

And for once I could see it all your way
And for once I knew I was all wrong
And I thought of you there in my door way
And I knew I'd been travelin' too long

Oh my Jenny, oh my Jenny
Oh my Jenny, my love
Oh my Jenny, oh my Jenny
You are my rainbow above

When I crossed to the heart of the country
I was lost in a forest of signs
And I laughed because life gets so funny
Here I was wasted from wastin' my time

So now shine down your sun on my shadow
Without you I don't mean a thing
And gather me one golden morning, babe
'Cause it's your song that I need to sing

And it's oh my Jenny, oh my Jenny
Oh my Jenny, my love
Oh my Jenny, oh my Jenny
You are my rainbow above

And it's oh my Jenny, oh my Jenny
Oh my Jenny, my love
Oh my Jenny, oh my Jenny
You are my rainbow above
