Jim Croce Lyrics


For Jim Croce, the touring life meant mostly one small
collage campus after another. When he was killed at age 30
on September 20, 1973 in Natchitoches, LA., he was doing
what he had done many times before - - taking off at night
in a light plane from a small airstrip.The plane snagged in
a treetop at the end of the dim runway outside Natchitoches
La., and sent 30 year old Jim and five others to their

Reviews about Jim Croce songs

One of the greatest... | Reviewer: Frank
    ------ About the song Operator (That's Not The Way It Feels) performed by Jim Croce

Jim Croce was one of the greatest story-tellers of his generation. I never get tired of his music. It's a shame he died so young. Just based on the body of work he left us, can you only imagine the songs that were left unwritten. A tragedy.


Lover's Cross | Reviewer: Denise E.
    ------ About the song Lover's Cross performed by Jim Croce

Although my generation is with all the mainstream stuff called 'music' today, I am no real fan of any of it. I love everything back then, even as far as the 50s, since I grew up with it, thanks to my parents. But most of my personal favorites are between the 70s and 80s. I love Jim Croce, what an amazing musician, RIP, you're always missed.

    ------ About the song Gunga Din performed by Jim Croce

Guunga Din is an infamously infamous poem, for many reasons due to Rudyard Kipling's talent and poetic mastery, but the strange, off putting choice of colors for the background on this page plus the abnormal barrage of advertisements on the top of this page followed by an almost-creepy green slate puts this Gunga Din in a lackluster position. In short, there are other pages to spend your time on reading this poem, if it's a necessity in thi9s context.

    ------ About the song Operator (That's Not The Way It Feels) performed by Jim Croce

The saddest thing is this is a true story. He came back from the army and his woman left him for his best friend. The man was only 30 when he died, and yet his life was still full of the pain that an 80 year old man feels through his years. Fucked up......


ANOTHER VERSION | Reviewer: ALICE TILSON
    ------ About the song Greenback Dollar performed by Jim Croce

I READ THE LYRICS TO YOUR VERSION OF GREENBACK DOLLAR--
THERE MUST BE ANOTHER SONG---
THAT I LEARNED AS A CHILD--
IT WAS SOMETHING LIKE--
I DON'T WANT YOUR GREENBACK DOLLARS--
I DON'T WANT YOUR WATCH AND CHAIN-
ALL I WANT IS YOU MY DARLING--
WON'T YOU TAKE ME BACK AGAIN===

MANY MIGHTS DID I WANDER-
DOWN BESIDE THE DEEP BLUE SEA--
IN YOUR HEART YOU LOVE ANOTHER--
IN MY GRAVE I'D RATHER BE---

AND I CAN NOT REMEMBER THE OTHER VERSES--
BUT I DO KNOW THE TUNE---
THANKS--
