I guess everyone has their favorite singer their favorite entertainer
Mine was Gentleman Jim Reeves
Now I only know he was the great person the great artist and the great singer
He was my friend
I feel that these next songs that you'll hear in this album
Are the greatest that Jim Reeves ever sang
I hope that you will accept my humble way of presenting them to you
Jim was my friend he sang from the heart I'll try to do the best I can

Adios Amigo Gentleman Jim
The sun settin' slowly beyond the last hill
And the chorus sing softly to a world waiting still
Of hearts weak and sadder and lights growing dim
Adios Amigo Gentleman Jim

When he lift up his head and then began to sing
Was like carols at Christmas or birds in the spring
Such joy and such sunshine reflected in him
Adios Amigo Gentleman Jim

Then God went out walking one day heard him singing
With sadness and want to inspire
Said Jim listen to me one favour please do me
Come sing in my heavenly choir
Now the long day is over and the good race is run
And the world smiles much brighter for things Jim has done
A place in God's chorus they made for him our amigo Gentleman Jim
Adios Amigo Gentleman Jim
