Story

The name's have been changed to protect the innocent. Other wise this is a semi-true song about some wonderful, colorful characters in my life.

Lyrics

Finger's Crossed

 

She came here from Ohio

He came from a prairie town out west

They got a comfy job at the college

And let their spouses do the rest

 

She waters orchids in the green house

While he sorts the students mail

And when they get together

It turns their spouses faces pale

 

Cause they're a match made in heaven

Tho they live with someone else

They wear cowboy boots 

And cowboy hats

And big buckles on their belts

 

Chorus

Johnny Joe and Delila

Both shine like a movie star

Playing their old time folk songs

On the mandolin and the guitar

Johnny Joe and Delila

In a constant music mode

Their spouses keep their fingers crossed

When they are out there on the road

 

She rides buckskin horse through a flowered field

She's a gypsy by wild luck

Johnny talks about the old song writers

Cracking beer cans in his truck

 

He cooks a kicking chile

While he gives a cattle call

She pirouettes in a calico dress

Like a princess at a ball

 

And when they get together

They are a sight for sore eyes

Apple Pie and a Slice of life

The grand blue ribbon prize

Johnny Joe and Delila

Both shine like a movie star

Playing their old time folk songs

On the mandolin and the guitar

Johnny Joe and Delila

In a constant music mode

Their spouses keep their fingers crossed

When they are out there on the road

 

When they get together 

They are a sight for sore eyes

Apple Pie and a slice of life

The grand blue ribbon prize
