Reeves, Jim - My Juanita Lyrics




Nita Juanita,
Ask thy soul if we should part
Nita Juanita,
Lean thou on my heart.

Soft o'er the fountain
Ring falls the southern moon
Far o'er the mountain
Breaks the day too soon.

In thy dark eyes' splendor
Where the warm light loves to dwell
Weary looks, yet tender
Speak thy fond farewell.

(Nita Juanita,)
(Let me linger by your side)
Nita Juanita,
Be my own fair bride.

(Nita Juanita,)
(Ask thy soul if we should part)
Nita Juanita,
Lean Thou on my heart...

Reeves, Jim My Juanita Comments
  1. Julieta G Watlington

    My youngest sister succumbed to cancer in Feb last year. Her name was Juanita and nickname Tita. This song is so sad for me as I remember her. I sing along with the song but I say T..i..t..a J u a n i ta. RIP dearest sis.

  2. Ron Coffey

    This was the best version of Juanita I could find on Youtube. Jim Reeves had a great voice. Flash was used for photo of the album, but if one tries different camera
    angles, one can avoid lighting up Reeve's chin!

  3. Brian Mears

    Barney Fife sings this on Andy Griffith.

    Frank Pierce

    He should have been true to Thelma Lou and not started up with Juanita from the diner......

    Corno di Bassetto

    @Frank Pierce Also sung in the movie, "Picnic"

  4. Joe Serrano

    My grandma was gonna name my Momma 'Amparo', but thanks to my mom's Godmother, my Nana named my mom Juanita, my momma was beautiful, upon first glance by my Pa, fell in love and married 56 years! Juanita Aguilar-Serrano rest in peace.

  5. Juanita van Rooyen

    My dad heard this song in 1937 when he was a young high school boy, told his mom that Juanita would be the name of his first daughter. I was born in 1951 and Juanita my name....

    Victoria Owen

    Wow!! My grandfather loved this song and asked my Dad if he had daughter to name her Juanita. So in 1954 I was born as Juanita, also!!!

    Ron Coffey

    My Dad had a record of this song. Soon after I heard it, I met a gorgeous gal named Juanita from W. Denver High School ~ 1954. Wonder where she is now?

    Roy Hiser

    Juanita....my wife for 63 years. Love this song.

  6. José Carlos Pinheiro Pinheiro

    Maravilhosa!

  7. Juanita Gray

    Nita Juanita,
    Ask thy soul if we should part
    Nita Juanita,
    Lean thou on my heart.

    Soft o'er the fountain
    lingering falls the southern moon
    Far o'er the mountain
    Breaks the day too soon.

    In thy dark eyes' splendour
    Where the warm light loves to dwell
    Weary looks, yet tender
    Speak thy fond farewell.


    (Nita Juanita,)
    (Let me linger by your side)
    Nita Juanita,
    Be my own fair bride.

    (Nita Juanita,)
    (Ask thy soul if we should part)
    Nita Juanita,
    Lean Thou on my heart...

    Daniel Kreitmeir

    thats what i think is really unfair....some names simply ensure your daughter to be cute and pretty XD like how is that fair Juanita??? what happens to all the poor souls with names like Magareth`? or Kim? thats like practically forcing destiny to malke you a Bitch ;DDDD lucky girl...i wish there was a nice song for every name^^

    Roy Hiser

    Chloe is still a very nice name , And the song is timeless, They don't make them like that anymore.
