Jim Bridger
Recorded by Johnny Horton
Written by Leon Payne

Once there was a mountain man who couldn't write his name
Yet he deserves the front row seat in History's Hall of Fame
Am Dm
He forgot more about the Indians than we will ever know
Am E7 Am
He spoke the language of the Sioux the Black Foot and the Crow

A E7
(Let's drink to old Jim Bridger yes lift your glasses high)
As long as there's the USA don't let his memory die
(That he was making history never once occurred to him)
E7 A
But I doubt if we'd been here if it weren't for men like Jim

He spoke with General Custer and said listen Yellow Hair
The Sioux are the great nation so treat 'em fair and square
Am Dm
Sit in on their war council don't laugh away their pride
Am E7 Am
But Custer didn't listen at Little Big Horn Custer died

Repeat #2

There's poems and there's legends that tell of Carson's fame
Yet compared to Jim Bridger Kit was civilized and tame
Am Dm
These words are straight from Carson's lips if you place such story by him
Am E7 Am
If there's a man who knows this God forsaken land its Jim

Repeat #2
