Twenty Dollar Jim
Written and recorded by Marty Robbins

G
Once a week he’d come into the nightclub
C G
And he’d walk across the dance floor to a table just for two

You could see that he was lonelier than lonely
A7 D7
And he could write a book on being blue

G
Well he’d order up a single for his baby
C G
Then order up a double just for him

Well he drank a lot but he paid real good for love songs
C D7 G
And the band just called him Twenty Dollar Jim


About five years ago he lost his baby
C G
He never said just why or where she went

But the way he mixed his whiskey with his memories
A7 D7
And left him with his mind about half bent

G
The band could see him going through the motion
C G
A talking to someone who’d gone away

With eyes so sad and his voice choked with emotion
C D7 G
He’d stagger to the bandstand and he’d say

C
Singer won’t you sing me back to baby
G D7
Help me make it through this crazy world of mine
G C
Here’s a twenty for a love song for my baby
G D7 G
Singer won’t you sing me back to baby one more time


Well today I saw his picture in the paper
C G
And the story read he drank himself to death

But the story never mentioned his baby
A7 D7
Of how he spoke her name with every breath

G
In the name of love I bought some pretty flowers
C G
Then I took them down and left them there with him

And it made me sad to think he’s gone forever
C D7 G
When I said goodbye to Twenty Dollar Jim

C
Singer won’t you sing me back to baby
G D7
Help me make it through this crazy world of mine
G C
Here’s a twenty for a love song for my baby
G D7 G
Singer won’t you sing me back to baby one more time

D7 C G
Singer won’t you sing me back to baby one more time
