Johnny Cash

"Jim, I Wore A Tie Today"

[Verse 1: Willie Nelson]
Jim, Jim
I wore a tie today
The first that I ever wore
You have said that I look like a dummy
Out of a dry goods store

[Verse 2: Johnny Cash]
Oh, Jim, Jim, the preacher said a lot of things
But I didn't hear a word he said
My mind kept wandering
Back down the trail
Back to the good times we had

[Pre-Chorus: Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson]
Riding herd through the sun and the rain
Panning for gold on the cuff
We did everything in the books, I guess
And a lot that they never thought up

[Verse 3: Both Cash and Nelson]
Oh, Jim, Jim, so you're riding on ahead
Well, if that's how it's going to be
When you reach those streets paved with gold
Jim, take a claim out for me

[Johnny Cash's Spoken Verse]
We did everything we could do for ya, Jim
But your fever just wouldn't go down

[Willie Nelson's Spoken Verse]
So we put you on a wagon, Jim
And this morning we got you back to town

[Cash Spoken Verse]
But when we got here, you were gone, Jim
And there wasn't anything anybody could do

[Nelson Spoken Verse]
They dressed you up in a fancy suit and a necktie
And so, today, we wore one too

[Pre-Chorus and Chorus]
Riding herd through the sun and the rain
Panning for gold on the cuff
We've did everything in the book I guess
And a lot that they never thought up
Oh Jim, Jim, so you're riding on ahead
Well if that's how its going to be
When you reach those streets paved with gold
Jim, stake a claim out for me
