Jim, I Wore A Tie Today Song Lyrics

Jim, I Wore A Tie Today by Highwaymen


Songwriter: Walker, Cindy

(Willie)
Jim, Jim, I wore a tie today; the first one that I ever wore
You'd have said that I look like a dummy out of a dry goods store

(Johnny)
Oh, Jim, Jim, the preacher said a lot of things, but I didn't hear a word he said
My mind kept wanderin' back down the trail, back to the good times we had

(Both)
Ridin' herd through the sun and the rain
Pannin' for gold on the cuff
We did everything in the books, I guess
And a lot that they never thought up
Oh, Jim, Jim, so you're ridin' on ahead
Well, if that's how it's goin' to be
When you reach those streets paved with gold
Jim, stake a claim out for me

Johnny: We did everything we could for ya, Jim; but your fever just wouldn't go down.
Willie: So, we put you in the wagon, Jim; and this mornin', we got ya back to town.
Johnny: Though when we got here, you were gone, Jim; and there wasn't anything anybody could do.
Willie: They dressed you up in a fancy suit and necktie, so today, we wore one too.

(Both)
Ridin' herd through the sun and the rain
Pannin' for gold on the cuff
We did everything in the books, I guess
And a lot that they never thought up
Oh, Jim, Jim, so you're ridin' on ahead
Well, if that's how it's goin' to be
When you reach those streets paved with gold
Jim, stake a claim out for me
