Lying Jim, Lying Jim, one of our local brothers
Hey there Lying Jim, come on tell us another

Now ole Lying Jim got caught one time a stealin' a bunch of chickens
The neighbor all got so upset that the law went out to get him
Jim was sittin' there eatin' a leg and the law said, What have you done
Jim said, I was just passin' that house
And these chickens followed me home

Lying Jim, Lying Jim [unverified]

Now ole Lying Jim got drunk one time he passed right out in church
Fell right off the front row pew someone said, Lord, he's hurt
Next mornin' ole Jim sobered up out on the preacher's farm
He said, Preacher, I was wrasslin' the devil and that rascal broke my arm

Lying Jim, Lying Jim [unverified]

Now ole Lying Jim was broke one time and he tried to borrow money
Now some thought Jim was terrible some folks thought Jim was funny
They said, Jim we'll give you thirty dollars, just for one more lie
Jim said, Boys, I ain't got time my old rich uncle just died

Lying Jim, Lying Jim [unverified]

Now Jim was seein' the neighbor's wife and the man came home from work
Ole Jim grabbed his clothes to run but he only got his shirt
Well round and round that house they went and Jim was just in the kitchen
Jim said, I was just showin' your wife where I got bit by a kitten

Lying Jim, Lying Jim [unverified]
