"Come Back Jim" as written by and Jeffrey Lee Pierce....
You showed me how to make it
You showed me everything
You showed me now you say
that you're goin

Goin to leave

Goin to leave

You showed me all these people
You showed me all the way
Showed me and now
you say you're goin

goin away

goin away

For you I love the music
For you I love the sea
For you I love it all
Please don't leave
Please don't leave me

Oh please don't leave me now

You brought me here from Kansas
I hurted in my seats
Yes I guess I can get back but I can't
I can't get back

Oh I can't get back

They say you're goin crazy
They say you're goin mad
They say you're givin up all things
Givin up your bad things
Givin up all things
That you ever had

And I want you though you're mad

Now I'll always have to have you
Only willow winds
I will always lean
I'll say
Come back Jim
Come back Jim

I'll say
Come back Jim

I'll say come back Jim
I'll say come back Jim
I'll say come back Jim

    General CommentHey !
    I happened to find at least two - rather different - versions for this lyrics. So any correction will be truly welcomed.
