Jim, I Wore a Tie Today

Lyrics

Jim, Jim
I wore a tie today
The first one that I ever wore
You’d have said that I look like a dummy at the dry goods store

Ooh, Jim, Jim
The preacher said a lot of things
But I didn’t hear a word he said
My mind kept wanderin’ back down the trail
Back to the good times we had

Ridin’ heard, through the sun and the rain
Pannin’ for gold on the cuff
We did everything in the books, I guess
And a lot that they never thought of

Ooh, Jim, Jim
So you’re ridin’ on ahead
Well, if that’s how it’s goin’ to be
When you reach those streets paved with gold
Jim, stake a claim out for me

We did everything we could do for you, Jim
But, your fever just wouldn’t go down.

So we put you in the wagon, Jim
And this mornin’ we got you back to town.

But, when we got here you were gone, Jim
And there wasn’t anything anybody could do.

They dressed you up in a fancy suit and a neck-tie
So, today, we wore one too.

Ridin’ heard, through the sun and the rain
Panin’ for gold on the cuff
We did everything in the books, I guess
And a lot that they never thought of

Ooh, Jim, Jim
So you’re ridin’ on ahead
Well, if that’s how it’s goin’ to be
When you reach those streets paved with gold
Jim, stake a claim out for me
