Jody Blue was a lady who 
C                           G 
Knew how to turn a trick or two. 
  D 
Beneath the grime, she was a fine 
      C               G 
Young woman of twenty-two. 
 
It was sad, for she really wasn't bad, 
She was just doing best what she knew how to 
She was a gentle soul with a heart of gold 
and if you asked, she'd give it to you. 
 
Johnny Jem was a lonely young man 
Making his living from the well-to-do. 
At each day's end he was lookin' for a friend 
to pass an hour or two. 
 
For a quiet boy who was not so bold, 
The city streets were awefully cold, 
until he met that kindred soul 
in the shape of Jody Blue 
 
(Chorus:) 
G          C  G   C              G 
Two lonely people meeting in the night: 
C                  D           C    D 
How can a thing so wrong be so right_? 
C                  D           G 
How can a thing so wrong be so right? 
 
They sat together in a back street bar 
and they talked about the way things were 
and of the dreams that they both had 
and of things ought to be. 
 
They were both looking for the very same thing 
A one way trip through the eternal ring 
That bound them both to everything 
They never wanted to be. 
 
Born in the heart of the city wastes 
Maybe they were both reaching above their place 
They both knew that they could not face 
The only future they could see. 
 
So like two actors in their own little show 
They talked of places they could go 
Places where no-one would ever know 
Nobody would ever see 
 
Two lonely people meeting in the night: 
How can a thing so wrong be so right? 
How can a thing so wrong be so right? 
 
(instrumental) 
 
'Jody,' said Johnny 'Well I'm sorry to say 
I just cannot afford to pay 
For the love you cannot give away 
to a boy like me.' 
 
'Johnny,' said Jody, 'Don't you put yourself down 
For tonight in you I believe I've found 
A little hope for two city clowns 
Like you and me.' 
 
'And Johnny I think it'll be alright 
for you and I to spend the night 
until the darkness turns to light 
we'll let the world go free.' 
 
For a few short hours they forgot the world 
When they found in each other, this boy and girl 
A love more precious than any jewel 
that you'll ever see 
 
Two lonely people meeting in the night: 
How can a thing so wrong be so right? 
How can a thing so wrong be so right? 
 
Two lonely people meeting in the night: 
How can a thing so wrong be so right? 
How can a thing so wrong be so right? 
 
(Coda:) 
    C          G 
Hey Jody, Jody Blue 
    C          G 
Hey Jody, Jody Blue 
    C          G 
Hey Jody, Jody Blue
