Lyrics

One Eyed Jimmy
Jumped over
the border
to straighten things out
and get his papers in order

I'm gonna get rich
In 15 minutes he said
But things got twisted
And here's what happened instead
spent 20 years in stir - just gettin older
eating STALE JAIL Bread
While looking over his shoulder

NOW One eyed Jimmy
Just marks time
with chalk on the wall
And dreams of sunshine

One eyed Jimmy
He's a genuine- somma a bitch
An angel or devil
Man I just dont know which

One eyed Jimmy he just LOVE takin
Chances. and playing the odds
on long shot romances

It's all worth the risk
He always said
Otherwise those dreams
Just dance around - inside your head
YEAH
Come on Jimmy
( it's a long shot
But you can just bet
he's gonna gamble
every chance he get )

One eyed Jimmy he just LOVE takin
Chances
and playing the odds
on long shot romances

one eyed Jimmy
He's - a genuine somma a bitch
His Mama always warned him
"Never run with a stick" !

One eyed Jimmy
was a preaching sensation
Lost one hand
Stealing from his own congregation

One Eyed Jimmy is getting whittled away
But he don't care cause he got a new
scheme everyday
One Eyed Jimmy is gettin whittled away
But he don't care cause he got a new
scheme everyday

One eyed Jimmy he's a genuine
somma a bitch
His mama always warned him
"Never run with a stick"
"Never Never run with a stick" !
No no Jimmy NO NO Jimmy Dont you run with a stick
NO NO JIMMY
