You Don't Mess Around With Jim

	  E  
Uptown got it's hustlers  
  
The bowery got it's bums  
  
42nd Street got Big Jim Walker  
                              E7  
He's a pool-shootin' son of a gun  
    A7  
Yeah, he big and dumb as a man can come  
  
But he stronger than a country hoss  
             B7                A7  
And when the bad folks all get together at night  
              B7               E  
You know they all call big Jim "Boss", just because   
  
And they say  
          A7                E7  
You don't tug on Superman's cape  
          A7            E7  
You don't spit into the wind  
          A7   
You don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger  
        B7                     E  
And you don't mess around with Jim  
                              B7  
Do da do da da di di de de de di  
  
E        
Well outta south Alabama came a country boy  
  
He say I'm lookin' for a man named Jim  
  
I am a pool-shootin' boy  
  
My name Willie McCoy  
                           E7  
But down home they call me Slim  
         A7  
Yeah I'm lookin' for the king of 42nd Street  
  
He drivin' a drop top Cadillac  
             B7  
Last week he took all my money  
       A7  
And it may sound funny  
       B7                  E  
But I come to get my money back  
               
And everybody say Jack don't you know  
              A7                E7  
And you don't tug on Superman's cape  
          A7            E7  
You don't spit into the wind  
          A7  
You don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger  
        B7                     E  
And you don't mess around with Jim  
                             B7  
Do da do da da di di de de de di  
E  
Well a hush fell over the pool room  
  
Jimmy come boppin' in off the street  
  
And when the cuttin' were done  
  
The only part that wasn't bloody  
        E7  
Was the soles of the big man's feet  
             A7  
Yeah he were cut in in bout a hundred places  
  
And he were shot in a couple more  
        B7  
And you better believe  
     A7  
They sung a different kind of story  
     B7              E  
When big Jim hit the floor now they say  
          A7                E7  
You don't tug on Superman's cape  
          A7            E7  
You don't spit into the wind  
          A7  
You don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger  
        B7                     E  
And you don't mess around with Slim  
                     B7  
mm mn mn mn mn mn mn mn   
  
Yeah, big Jim got his hat  
  
Find out where it's at  
  
And it's not hustlin' people strange to you  
  
Even if you do got a two-piece custom-made pool cue  
               A7                E7  
Yeah you don't tug on Superman's cape  
          A7            E7  
You don't spit into the wind  
          A7  
You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger  
        B7                     E  
And you don't mess around with Slim
