1. When Jim was born He was crying.
Those around Him were laughing.
Now that Jim is gone
Everyone who knew Jim is now crying.
Especially this fool who did not
Get a chance to see or to know Him
His Beautiful face and His Melodious Voice
Has caused me to Love Him
Yes I Do
To John Rex and Neva Reeves
2. Thank you John and Neva
For keeping Jim’s memories and Name alive
And to follow in your Uncle’s footsteps.
Wish I could tell Him that you and Neva are making it in their lives.
Their two sons and grandchildren are doing just fine
If only there was a way to tell you
That they are the most Respectful Family you have left behind.

Great country music is a Reeves family tradition.
