"Sweet Jessie Brown" as written by and Kirkendall Watson....
She used to dream that She would be a celebrity and known for miles around
She'd dress up in her linens She'd sit and pretend She was a queen in Her gown
But I was just a boy from down the road and I was known as trouble in town
Thought to be the man who took the hand and changed the plans of sweet Jessie Brown

[Chorus]
Sweet Jessie Brown
Would you look at you now

She graduated early and to prep school we new surely
She was bound
Everybody tried to warn
Her I would be the one to try to bring
Her down
Because I told
Her there's a hole world out there for the two of
Us and it's waitin' to be found
And knew to be the man who would take the hand
And change the plans of sweet Jessie Brown

[Chorus]

On a road bound for nowhere a baby's cryin' was the only sound
Then the baby stopped it's crying and Jessie's world came tumblin' to the ground
I found a pill box on the dresser and note that She died holding in Her hand
It read I goodbye dear I love you and I'm sorry signed Jessie Brown

[Chorus]
