Jimmy Was A Drinkin' Kind Of Man

	  		
C 
Jimmy was a regular at the local drinking bar 

F                   G7 
He worked like everybody else and ways were mean and hard 

  C                                            F 
I met him as a little boy and I liked him as I grew 

                 G7                              C 
Jimmy's life was tough and seemed like everybody knew 


                                  F 
That Jimmy was a drinking kind of man 

   G7                             C 
He loved to hear a good hillbilly band 

                                     F 
The scar across his face was Jimmy's brand 

      G7                           C 
Cause Jimmy was a drinking kind of man 



We got to be together 'fore the good Lord tucked him in 

   F              G7 
He said I'm never coming back to this old town again 

     C                                              F 
Said no one understands me folks don't even want me home 

                   G7                           C 
He took a drink of wine and said its hell to be alone 


                                  F 
That Jimmy was a drinking kind of man 

   G7                             C 
He loved to hear a good hillbilly band 

                                     F 
The scar across his face was Jimmy's brand 

      G7                           C 
Cause Jimmy was a drinking kind of man 



I finally got to see ole Jim after being gone so long 

       F             G7 
By the crowd of cars around his house 


I could tell there was something wrong 

  C                                                F 
I arrived in time to find him in a pine box on the floor 

                      G7                                    C 
His momma's eyes were filled with tears as I stepped in the door 


                                   F 
That Jimmy was a drinking kind of man 

   G7                             C 
He loved to hear a good hillbilly band 

                                     F 
The scar across his face was Jimmy's brand 

      G7                           C 
Cause Jimmy was a drinking kind of man
