lyrics

BIG JIM



FOLKS CALL HIM BIG JIM
HE’S GOOD TO ROCK ALL NIGHT
FOLKS CALL HIM BIG JIM
LORD, HE WAS BORN TO ROCK ALL NIGHT
ALL HE’S GOT IS THEM THERE BAD BLUES
HE SINGS ‘EM WITH ALL HIS MIGHT

HE GREW UP ON THE SOUTH SIDE
IT WAS TOO COLD TO HIM ROUND THERE
THE SOUTH SIDE OF CHICAGO
IT WAS TOO COLD TO HIM ROUND THERE
NOW HE LIVES IN JACKSON COUNTY
IT’S HIS HOME, HE DOES DECLARE

THEY GAVE JIM A GUN
AND SENT HIM OFF TO FIGHT
SENT HIM OFF TO NAM
TO BE PART OF THAT THERE FIGHT
THINGS THAT HE SAW THERE
STILL COME BACK TO HIM IN THE NIGHT

THE BLUES AND JACK DANIELS
ARE MUCH OK BY HIM
SINGIN’ THE BLUES AND OLE JACK DANIELS
ARE MUCH OK BY HIM
WHEN THE BAND’S IN THE ZONE
HE’S ALL DOWN WITH THE JAM

FOLKS CALL HIM BIG JIM
HE’S GOOD TO ROCK ALL NIGHT

about

Kent McDaniel Chicago, Illinois

First band Kent ever saw was Salty Gamblin & The Mudcat Band. Spring Fest, his 5th grade year. They walked out, plugged in, looked at everybody. Had electric guitar, bass, & drums--& Salty on acoustic & vocals. Bam, they tore into "I Saw The Light." Chills shot up & down Kent's body.
He saved up & got a Gibson Melody Maker. Played & sang ever since. Never means to stop.
