Oh Jenny (A Frank Willis)
See also: Oh Jenny (Bob Porter)

Oh, Jenny, take me home,
Promise you I'll no more roam,
Oh, Jenny, take me home tonight;
I travelled east, north, west and south,
This ol' heart's all gypsied out,
Oh, Jenny, take me home tonight.

This knapsack that I'm carryin's
the only thing I own,
Can't wait to plant my feet
upon our shore once more;
I'm all done this travelling,
no more will I roam,
Oh, Jenny, won't you take me home.

We'll build ourselves a cabin
somewhere way back in the woods,
And we can go out walking in the rain;
Evenings, take the boat out,
and we'll paddle 'round the pond,
Oh, Jenny, won't you take me home.

Oh, Jenny, take me home,
Promise you I'll no more roam,
Oh, Jenny, take me home tonight;
I travelled east, north, west and south,
This ol' heart's all gypsied out,
Oh, Jenny, take me home tonight.

Remember back in school
we would walk each other home,
We used to dream of places
that we'd go when we're old;
But the world just seems colder
when you've travelled it alone,
Oh, Jenny, won't you take me home.
