(Jim Jim) Jim I did everything I could do but your fever just wouldn't die down
So I tied your horse to the wagon and last night I brought you to town
When I got you there Jim you's gone and there was nothin' nobody could do
So 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've said that I looked like a dummy out of a dry goods store
Jim they said a lot of things but I couldn't tell you one thing they said
Somehow my mind kept wanderin'
Wanderin' down back that trail back to the times that we've had
One thing 'bout you old friend is side by side sun or rain
How many times pannin' gold on the cuff
We did about everything in the book I guess
And prob'ly some things that they never read or thought up
Well Jim you're ridin' on ahead and I I guess that's the way that's gotta be
But Jim when you reach them streets paved with gold nobody stake a claim out for me
(Jim hmm Jim) Jim I wore a tie today
