Geoff Moore – Hey Jimmie lyrics

Geoff Moore/Dale Oliver
Luke 9:24-25 & 16:13

Well, little Jimmie Thomas was the boy of every mother's dreams
His yearbook read, "I want it all, I want to do everything"
We now, people love it when winners lead
So they voted Jimmie "the most likely to succeed"

Hey Jimmie, hey Jimmie, oh, you make us proud
And Jimmie, say Jimmie, you're the man of the hour
With Jimmie, with Jimmie, we rise and we fall
Little Jimmie Thomas you're the best in us all

Well, Jimmie grew to be a man of wealth, fortune and fame
You know the kind of man that people love to say they know and to
call by
his first name
He says there's only one on which you can rely
And I see him in the mirror every morning and every night


Out on a lonely country road on a late November night
Jimmie held 44 reasons to give up on his life
There was an old abandoned church stood just across the road
With a little faded sign that wave to and fro, to and fro

What does it profit a man to gain this world
Profit a man to gain this whole world
Profit a man to gain this world, but to lose his very soul

Hey Jimmie, hey Jimmie, oh, you make us proud
But Jimmie, say Jimmie, what's happened to you now
With Jimmie, with Jimmie, we rise and we fall
In little Jimmie Thomas, I see the worst in us all
