lyrics

he rode in town one day
a price her heart would pay
when his boots hit the ground
she heard no other sound
she just thinks of that Texas Jim now
everyday

although she had a man
that did all he can
that Texas Jim was on her mind
everyday

did you think that she could go back to the life she knew before
when Texas Jim’s smile hadn’t darkened her hearts door
oh that poor ol’ Texas Jim

you know her man was not too pleased
for on his bended knee
he’d promised her a life of love and ease

ah but she did not reply
he knew the reason why
that Texas Jim was on her mind
everyday

did you think that she could go back to the life she knew before
when Texas Jim’s smile hadn’t darkened her hearts door
oh that poor ol’ Texas Jim

you know her man saw Texas Jim
and he went talk to him
he said he loved his little Rosa
everyday

but ol’ Jim did not reply
he just gave her man a grin
well that’s when the knife took Texas’s Jim’s life
that fateful day

and they put him in the ground
and her man fled town
and now Rosa walks alone by that graveyard
everyday

oh that poor ol’ Texas Jim

you know a simple cross stands there
where Jim’s remains lay
and a dry and dusty breeze
blows across his grave
everyday

and now Rosa thinks of her life
how it changed by the knife
and she still thinks of that Texas Jim
everyday

did you think that you could change it
God’s plan that lay before
a fleeting moments glance and a lifetime of adore

oh that poor ol’ Texas Jim

oh that poor ol’ Texas Jim
