JIMMIE THE KID
(Jimmie Rodgers)
« © '31 Peer International, BMI »

I'll tell you a story of Jimmie the Kid he's a brakeman you all know
He was born in Mississippi away down south and he flagged on the T N & O
He yodeled to fame on the Boston Main the Wabash and the Teepee
From the old Grand Trunk to the cotton belt and he yodeled on the Santa Fe
On the Lehigh Valley he yodeled awhile then he went to the Nickel Plate
From the old Lake Shore and the Erie Line now he yodels to a Cadillac Eight
He yodeled his way to the C & A the Lackawanna and I C
He rode a rattler called the Cannonball then he yodeled on the M K & T
Now the story goes that Jimmie the Kid he has a yodeling mama so sweet
They go Cadillacin’ every night and they yodel up and down the street
He's rode freight trains from East and West he's fixed himself up nice
He's got a beautiful home all of his own it's the yodeler's paradise
They've treated him good they've treated him bad he never done any wrong
He yodels a yodel everybody knows is the yodeling brakeman's song
