Song: Jimmy

FAWM 2018

Album: FAWM 2018
Track: #27

This one I think is at best a concept? Maybe? It's kind of interesting I guess. The only part I really like is the "trailer ain't got no boat on it" section ... the rest is just trying to flesh out the story. Anyway, I struggled mightily today to get _any_ inspiration, so hopefully when I come back to this one sometime in the future I'm able to build on it. That or I just like it better at that time. :)

Jimmy had a little trouble
On his way back home from the reserve
Some jackleg crossed the double line
And he had to swerve

Clickity clack things were tumblin
Shake and a rattle and a hum
Jimmy just sat there struggling
To understand just what he'd done

He was pretty damn confused
The day was already bad enough
Now he was getting abused
By vindictive little lady luck

Jimmy stepped out of the truck
And saw all the damage done
He said to himself what the F'Oh my
And stared understandably stunned

He decided to head home
And deal with it sometime later
But wouldn't you just know
His troubles would only get greater

His trailer ain't got no boat on it
His pale ain't got no fish
And mama's standin' there yellin' at him
He's got a sink to fix

And he kept falling down that deep black hole
And he kept falling down that deep black hole

He decided to head home
And deal with it sometime later
But wouldn't you just know
His troubles would only get greater

His trailer ain't got no boat on it
His pale ain't got no fish
And mama's standin' there yellin' at him
He's got a sink to fix

And he kept falling down that deep black hole
And he kept falling down that deep black hole
