It's so nice to meet an old friend and pass the time of day
   And talk about the home town a million miles away
   Is the ice still on the river, are the old folks still the same
   And by the way, did she mention my name
   Did she mention my name just in passing
   And when the morning came, do you remember if she dropped a name or two
   Is the home team still on fire, do they still win all the games
   And by the way, did she mention my name
   Is the landlord still a loser, do his signs hang in the hall
   Are the young girls still as pretty in the city in the fall
   Does the laughter on their faces still put the sun to shame
   And by the way, did she mention my name
   Did she mention my name just in passing
   And when the talk ran high, did the look in her eye seem far away
   Is the old roof still leaking when the late snow turns to rain
   And by the way, did she mention my name
   Did she mention my name just in passing
   And looking at the rain, do you remember if she dropped a name or two
   Won't you say hello from someone, they'll be no need to explain
  And by the way, did she mention my name

Exit Music I would appreciate...please.


   When I told you I was leaving, you didn't believe what I Said
   You just went right on sleeping, and rolled over in your. Bed
   Now were you surprised to open up your eyes
   And find that I had moved on
   Oh, Honey your loving man has packed all of things
   And taken that last train and gone
   You can't say I didn't warn you, I told you 'bout a. Hundred times
  You had fifty-seven ways of being mean to me, fifty-seven. Varieties like Heinz
   But now I've had enough of that same old stuff
   And so I'm moving on
  Oh, Honey your loving man has packed all of things
   And taken that last train and gone
   I really hope you're feeling sorry for all the times you. Made me cry
   Oh, you could've made life so much easier Babe, but you
   Did not even try
   So see you around but not in this old town
   Your man is moving on
   Oh, Honey your loving man has packed all of things
   And taken that last train and gone
   He has, taken that last train and gone

​  Never hit seventeen when you play against the dealer
  For you know that the odds won't ride with you
  And never leave your woman alone when your friends are out to steal her
  Years are gambled and lost like summer wages

  And we'll keep a rolling on till we get to Vancouver
  And the woman that I love who's living there
  It's been six long months and more since I've seen her
  She may be gambled and gone like summer wages

  In all the beer taverns all down along Young Street
  The dreams of the seasons are all spilled down on the floor
  All the big stands of timber just waitin' for fallin'
  And the hustlers sitting watchfully as they wait there by the door

  So I'll work on them towboats with my slippery city shoes
  Which I swore I would never do again
  Through the gray fog-bound straits where the cedars stand watching
  I'll be far off and gone like summer wages

  She's a woman so fine I may never try to find her
  For good mem'ries are what we had before
  They should never be chained for they're all that I'll take with me
  Now I've gambled and lost like summer wages
  Years are gambled and lost my summer wages

   Very Favourite... but what a heartbreaker!

She would meet me in the mornin', on my way down to the river
Waitin' patient by the Chinaberry tree
With her feet already dusty, from the pathway to the levee
And her little blue jeans rolled up to her knees

I'd pay her no attention, as she tagged along beside me
Tryin' hard to copy everything I did
But I couldn't keep from smilin', when I'd hear somebody sayin'
Looky yonder there goes Jody and the kid

Even after we grew older, we could still be seen together
As we walked along the levee holdin' hands
For as surely as the seasons, she was changin' to a woman
And I'd lived enough to call myself a man

And she often lay beside me, in the coolness of the evenin'
Till the morning sun was shinin' on my bed
And at times when she was sleepin', I would smile when I'd remember
How they use to call us Jody and the kid

Now the world's a little older, and the years have changed the river
'Cause there's houses where they didn't used to be
And on Sundays I go walkin', down the pathway to the levee
With another little girl who follows me

And it makes the old folks smile, to see her tag along beside me
Doin' little things the way her mama did
But it gets a little lonesome, when I hear somebody sayin'
Looky yonder, there goes Jody, and the kid.
