(Jim uh huh, Jim uh huh, Jim) Jim, I did everything that I could But your fever just wouldn't die down...
(Jim uh huh, Jim uh huh, Jim) 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 nothin' 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 wanderin' off down the trail Back to the times that we've had. (Wind her through sun and the rain) And for gold on the cuff We've done everything in the book I guess And a lot they'd never thought up. Well Jim, you're ridin' on ahead I guess that's how it has be But when you reach those streets paved with gold Jim Stake a claim out for me...
