lyrics

BUT I DO LOVE JIM

So I ain’t exactly the kind of man that makes for a young girl’s fantasy
Although I look pretty good for my age and there’s times I’d like to be
That’s why her freckled face and emerald eyes
Took me for a fool and by complete surprise

Oh baby baby don’t you want me
Don’t you need me more than him
She said I thought about you for a long long time
But I do love Jim

So she had a husband but you couldn’t tell that that night
She left me with a smile and feelin’ allright
But the mornin’ came and I woke alone and my girl wondered where I’d been
All I wanted at that point was to feel that way again

Oh baby baby don’t you want me
Don’t you need me more than him
She said I’ll think about your for a long long time
But I do love Jim

Guilt lays heavy on a young girl’s mind
When she’s searchin’ just to be searchin’
Not knowin’ what she’ll find

She said she planned to move to Texas it was her last weekend in town
She met me in a bar and then she took me down
So I followed her to the river to do the things I could not do
And I cried all the way home just because I had to

Oh baby baby don’t you want me
Don’t you need me more than him
She said I’ll think about you often honey
But I do love Jim
