Jim, I Wore A Tie Today Lyrics

(Willie)
Jim, Jim, I wore a tie today; the first one that I ever wore
You'd have said that I look like a gumby down at the 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 cut
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 cut
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
