Emmylou Harris - Juanita Lyrics

No affection were the words that stuck on my mind
When she walked out on me for the very last time
Oh mamma sweet mamma can you tell me what to say
I don't know what I've done to be treated this way
In a cold dirty room that's where I found myself
With a bottle of wine and some pills off the shelf
Oh mamma sweet mamma can you tell me what to say
I don't know what I've done and I'm feeling so ashamed

Then an angel appeared she was just 17
In a dirty old town with a conscious so clean
Oh mamma sweet mamma can you tell me what to say
She's brought back the life that I once threw away

    Like a beautiful old Chevrolet.... keeps on giving , these two brilliant musicians are super stars in my opinion 🎶

  2. Matt Thompson

    Emmy might be the only person I have ever seen in any field of endeavor with the capacity to either lead, follow, or get out of the way and showcase others better than anyone else has ever done it. There will never be another. She towers over all the rest.

  3. Steve Jones

    Wonderful , wonderful

    Classic cover sung by a beautiful woman that was with Gram and the FBB when it was written. Emmylou's voice and beauty are timeless. Kudos to Sheryl Crow as well. I live near Joshua Tree National Park and always play this when I'm driving through this incredible place that Gram loved so much.

    Thanks for the reply! I really thought it sounded like a gram parsons song. Such great lyrics and melody. Love gram.

  22. CrowVideoTV2

    Juanita was written by Gram Parson and Chris Hillman (Flying Burrito Brothers) in the late 1960's. This cover was part of a tv tribute to Gram Parson. I personally love it! Great vocal harmonies by Sheryl and Emmylou.

  23. jeb419

    Wow! Who wrote that song! I looked it up and it says Cheryl crow wrote it but it just sounds like an old country song. Love it. Only gripe is why did it have to only be 3 minutes long! I want more.
