(|: Jim ooh ooh :|)
Jim, I did everything that I could
But your fever just wouldn't die down
So I tied your horse to the wagon bed,
and last night I brought you to town.
But when I got there you were gone, Jim
And there was nothing nobody could do
I bought you a suit and a tie, Jim
And today I wore one. too.
Jim, I wore a tie today,
the first one that I ever wore
And you'd have said, I looked like a dummy
out of a dry goods store.
Jim, they said a lot of things
But I don't know a thing they said
My mind kept wandering off down the trail,
back to the times that we've had.
(Riding her through sun and the rain)
And in for gold on the cuff
We've done everything in the book, I guess,
and a lot they'd never thought up.
Well Jim (Jim), you're riding on ahead
I guess that's how it has to be
But when you reach those streets paved with gold
Jim, stake a claim out for me!
