The Ghost Of Jim Bob Wilson Recorded by Cal Smith Written by Don Wayne
G C G Jim Bob Wilson passed away in 1928 C G D7 His wife Reba was a fiery woman child G C G She was seventeen and a lovely thing and everybody said C D7 G She was bound go plumb crazy and run wild
C G Jim Bob had hardly more than gotten settled in his grave C G D7 When the men folks started knocking on her door G C G They all had pretty flowers and some pretty words to say C D7 G But they just got a friendly smile and nothing more
D7 C G Through the years she never ever gave a man a second glance D7 C G Though many came and tried in vain to start a hot romance C G And when they called her crazy she smiled and told herself C D7 G The ghost of Jim Bob Wilson is alive and doing well
C G In the latter part of ’48 a wise old mid-wife said C G D7 Widow Wilson is growing heavy with a child G C G But now tongues started wagging and they laughed and shook their head C D7 G Said at long last Reba Wilson’s running wild
C G In the early spring of ’49 a fair boy child was born C D7 Folks said her name and son would turn out bad G C G But she named him Jim Bob Jr. and just laughed away their story C D7 G Said he’ll grow up fine and straight just like his dad
D7 C G All the rest of her life she gave no man a second glance D7 C G Though many came and tried in vain to start a hot romance C G She watched her fine young son grow up and smiled unto herself C D7 G The ghost of Jim Bob Wilson is alive and doing well
