Sammy Kershaw - Little Did I Know

(Bill McCorvey - Greg Crowe - Dave Gibson)

Little Jolena, a dark haired darling
Skin of ivory, angel eyes
Every man in Louisana wanted her sweet love
But she swore on the Bible she was mine, all mine.

Hey, little did I know she was wild as the bayou
Catch a man on a cane pole, hang his heart on the line
I thought I could hold her, me oh, my oh
Little did I know she had bigger fish to fry.

--- Instrumental ---

My brother tried to warn me, Mama, she scorned me
My friends all told me I was under her spell
But I wouldn't listen, I was lovesick
Without Jolena, life would be a living hell.

Hey, little did I know she was wild as the bayou
Catch a man on a cane pole, hang his heart on the line
I thought I could hold her, me oh, my oh
Little did I know she had bigger fish to fry.

At the church in the Wildwood, standin' at the alter
Little Jolena never showed
I heard later on she left with a dandy
And headed down to Mexico.

Hey, little did I know she was wild as the bayou
Catch a man on a cane pole, hang his heart on the line
I thought I could hold her, me oh, my oh
Little did I know she had bigger fish to fry.

Hey, little did I know she had bigger fish to fry...

--- Instrumental to fade ---
