  1. Mr. Jimmy

From the album American Gypsy

Mr. Jimmy paints a picture of a character who claims himself a “self-made-in-America, bad guy.” The guitar licks in this song have personality, and it is easy to imagine them as Mr. Jimmy misbehaving.

Lyrics

My name is Jimmy

My name is Jimmy
I make a killin', for a livin'
Name is Jimmy

If you need it I got it
if I want it I take it
Name is Jimmy

Well you feel it
but you don’t know why
Everybody loves
a self-made-in-America bad guy
alright

My name is Jimmy

I got a different face
and cash stashed in a safe
in a hundred, different cities
I got a girl on each arm
the law can’t do me no harm
My name is Jimmy

You won’t find my name
baby in your book
Take a step back honey
and a closer look
My name is Jimmy

Ya you feel it
but you don’t know why
Everybody loves a
self-made-in-America, bad guy
alright

My name is Jimmy
I roll like a stone
Scorsese on the phone
I’m at a strip club
with the mayor
and baby we don’t care

Out box the cops
I’m a lion and a fox
Ice in my veins
I feel no pain
They call me vicious
I call me charming

Well you feel it
but you don’t know why
Everybody loves
a self-made-in-America, bad guy
alright

My name is Jimmy
