Jimmy was born in Bethlehem, Georgia He grew up to be a carpenter by trade We met four years ago on a job site Said he'd just turned 29 on Christmas Day
Jimmy always had a hammer in his hand I can still hear him driving those tenpenny nails But Sunday morning you'd find him at the Baptist church Giving thanks for his family, friends and his health
Jimmy and Jesus sure did have a lot in common Both born in December in a town with the same name Jimmy and Jesus worked hard every day Tryin' to make this world a better place
His weekly paycheck barely paid his bills Yet he could always find an extra ten to lend a friend You'd hear them say "we'll pay ya back on Friday" But he'd say "Don't worry about it" And just look at them and grin
Jimmy and Jesus sure did have a lot in common They'd give you the shirt right off their back Jimmy and Jesus worked hard every day Tryin' to make this old world a better place
Looking back I can't forget that rainy April afternoon I slipped and fell while me and Jimmy were working on a roof He reached out and saved me from fallin' down But then he lost his balance and tumbled to the ground Jimmy and Jesus sure did have a lot in common They lived their lives unselfishly And died to save a friend Jimmy and Jesus worked hard everyday Tryin' to make this old world a better place Tryin' to make this old world a better place
