Do you like jumping through the keyhole in your door
I feel like jumping through the keyhole in your door
If you jump this one time, baby
You won't jump no more.

Well I feel like fallin’ from a treetop to the ground
I feel like fallin’ from a treetop to the ground
My rider she got a mean joker
And he don't allow me around, no

I go there early in the mornin'
And I go there late at night
I go there early in in the mornin'
And I go there late at night
I don't care how late I go there, oh
He never never turns out the light

Listen, you know
I believe he's alookin’ for me
He's up all hours of the night
Hey! I believe he's alookin’ for me
He's up all hours of the night
She used to be my rider
And he ain't treatin her right.
Uh and I said she used to be my rider
and he ain't treatin' her right.

I met this joker one mornin'
He was out on the edge of town
I met this joker one mornin'
and he was out on the edge of town
I had to beg and plead
Just to keep him from blowin' me down
Oh, I got the mean jumper blues, oh
Got the mean jumper blues
Oh, I got them mean jumper blues

I feel like jumpin' through the keyhole in your door
I feel like jumpin' through the keyhole in your door
If you jump this one time, baby, yeah
You won't jump no more
I said I said if you ju-ju-just jump this one time, baby, yeah
You won't jump no more
Hey hey yeah! I swear if you jump this one time, baby
Please please jump this one time baby, yeah!
Please please just jump this one time baby, yeah!
You won't jump no more

I got the mean jumper blues
I said I got the mean jumper blues yeah
I got them mean jumpers blues

    General Commentwow i can't believe nobody has commented on this song. i'm not too suprised though cuz it is really obscure. i really love it though, it's one of my all time favorites to listen to while driving. it's just one of theose driving songs. def not a counting crows original, i believe it was blind lemon jefferson who did the original.

    i got the general broken heart message, but why is the guy refered to as "rider" and what does mean jumper blues mean? i don't really get the allusions in this song. anybody got any ideas or insight?
