Brother Jim Got Shot

This song is by Dock Boggs and appears on the album His Folkways Years, 1963-1968 (1998).

Me and my brother Jim went to a restaurant one night
Through some other parties we got into a fight
Shot all the way through me, they killed my brother Jim
Hard luck, hard luck, they placed me on the spot

Jury said it wasn't me, my brother Jim got shot
Jury said it wasn't me, my brother Jim got shot

Well, my wife had a mouth big enough for both
She got frightened in her sleep one night
And a mouse ran down her throat

Hard luck, hard luck, they placed me on the spot
Jury said it wasn't me, my brother Jim got shot

Got me a cat and a piece of cheese
And I placed it on her chin
My wife got frightened in her sleep one night
Took rat, cat, cheese and all in
