SWEET JUANITA

I heard she came from Okmulgee
If it weren’t for her there’d be no me
Now all I have is this photograph of
Sweet sweet Juanita
Sweet Juanita

Then that boy from Muskogee
Crossed the county line into Juanita’s arms
Sweet sweet Juanita
Sweet Juanita

A sharecropper’s son she married him young two kids did what come naturally
They had Floyd James and a boy that became my daddy
Sweet sweet Juanita
Sweet Juanita

Then that oil company man moved ‘em to Mobile Alabam
Along come Betty Jo and Barbara Ann
Then she turned 29 she didn’t have much time

They put her on a train back to Okmulgee
They laid her in the ground and sang Amazing Grace
Now all I have is this photograph of
Sweet sweet Juanita
Sweet Juanita
