Poor Little Jimmy

Song Author Don Wayne Performer: Hank Snow Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Well poor little Jimmy was a [F]real cool kid
He [C]had all the girls a flipping their [G7]lids   
Well he [F]parked in the dark neath the [G7]great big moon [C]above [G7]    
Then he [C]met a little girl and he [F]took her for a ride
She [C]turned on her charm and [G7]Jimmy tried and tried
To [F]fight off you but he just [G7]couldn't win against [C]love

[F]Poor little Jimmy's [G7]done gone and done
He [F]tried to out run love but he [C]couldn't out run her
He [G7]tried to out do cupid but [C]cupid out done him
Yes [F]poor little Jimmy done [G7]gone and fell in [C]love

Now she said little Jimmy why [F]don´t we go steady
He [C]said I´m sorry but I ain´t quite [G7]ready
To settle [F]down cause I´ve [G7]gotta lot of living to [C]do   [G7]    
Then she [C]snuggled up closer and [F]breathed a sigh
Jimmy [C]kissed her lips and [G7]then he realized
That [F]his good old loving and [G7]leaving days were all [C]through

[F]Poor little Jimmy's [G7]done gone and done
He [F]tried to out run love but he [C]couldn't out run her
He [G7]tried to out do cupid but [C]cupid out done him
Yes [F]poor little Jimmy done [G7]gone and fell in [C]love

Now poor little Jimmy he [F]ain´t quite the same
His [C]young life´s has had a big [G7]change
He don´t get [F]around the town [G7]like he used to [C]do   [G7]    
Well [C]he used to be king till the [F]queen stepped in
His [C]troubles began along [G7]about then
Now [F]she´s showing poor [G7]little Jimmy a thing or [C]two  

[F]Poor little Jimmy's [G7]done gone and done
He [F]tried to out run love but he [C]couldn't out run her
He [G7]tried to out do cupid but [C]cupid out done him
Yes [F]poor little Jimmy done [G7]gone and fell in [C]love


Well poor little Jimmy was a real cool kid
He had all the girls a flipping their lids
Well he parked in the dark neath the great big moon above
Then he met a little girl and he took her for a ride
She turned on her charm and Jimmy tried and tried
To fight off you but he just couldn't win against love

Poor little Jimmy's done gone and done
He tried to out run love but he couldn't out run her
He tried to out do cupid but cupid out done him
Yes poor little Jimmy done gone and fell in love

Now she said little Jimmy why don´t we go steady
He said I´m sorry but I ain´t quite ready
To settle down cause I´ve gotta lot of living to do
Then she snuggled up closer and breathed a sigh
Jimmy kissed her lips and then he realized
That his good old loving and leaving days were all through

Poor little Jimmy's done gone and done
He tried to out run love but he couldn't out run her
He tried to out do cupid but cupid out done him
Yes poor little Jimmy done gone and fell in love

Now poor little Jimmy he ain´t quite the same
His young life´s has had a big change
He don´t get around the town like he used to do
Well he used to be king till the queen stepped in
His troubles began along about then
Now she´s showing poor little Jimmy a thing or two

Poor little Jimmy's done gone and done
He tried to out run love but he couldn't out run her
He tried to out do cupid but cupid out done him
Yes poor little Jimmy done gone and fell in love
