      Lyrics for Josh Turner - "You Don't Mess Around With Jim"

      Uptowns got it hustlers
      The bowery's got its bums
      42nd street got big jim walker
      He's a pool shootin' son of a gun
      Yeah he's big and dumb as a man can come
      But he's stronger than a country hoss
      And when the bad folks all get together at night
      You know they all call big jim boss

      And they say
      You don't tug on superman's cape
      You don't spit into the wind
      You don't pull the mask of the ol' lone ranger
      And you don't mess around with Jim

      Well outta south alabama come a country boy
      He said I'm looking for a man named jim
      I am a pool shootin boy
      My name is Willie McCoy
      But down home they call me slim
      Yeah I'm lookin for the king of forty second street
      He drivin' a drop top cadillac
      And last week he took all my money
      And it may sound funny
      But I come to get my money back

      And everybody say
      Jack, don't you know
      You don't tug on superman's cape
      You don't spit into the wind
      You don't pull the mask of the ol' lone ranger
      And you don't mess around with Jim

      Well a hush fell over the pool room
      When Jimmy come boppin' in off the street
      And when the cutting was done
      The only thing that wasn't bloody
      Was the souls of the big mans feet
      Yeah he was cut in bout a hundred places
      And he was shot in a couple more
      And you better believe
      They sung a different kinda story
      When big Jim hit the floor, uh huh

      Now they say
      You don't tug on superman's cape
      You don't spit into the wind
      You don't pull the mask of the ol' lone ranger
      And you don't mess around with Jim

      Now they say
      You don't tug on superman's cape
      You don't spit into the wind
      You don't pull the mask of the ol' lone ranger
      And you don't mess around with Slim

      You don't pull the mask of the ol' lone ranger
      And you don't mess around with Slim
