Where Have You Gone Jimmy Dean

Performances (1)

Wanna stare at you at singles bars 
Pretty impatient girls (??) 
Drank red wine as they smoke all night 
unfiltered Camel cigarettes 
Talk of God and the good old days

Where have you gone Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean 
Where have you gone my handsome young man 
Where have you gone Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean 
There's a crack in the wall 
And you're leaving heavy mold

Romance can be very sweet 
But at times unkind 
A soul to the wanting priest 
Drunker ever since his wine 
All you wanted was a good fight 
And to die long before your time

Where have you gone Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean 
Where have you gone my handsome young man 
Where have you gone Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean 
There's a crack in the wall 
And you're leaving heavy mold

(Skat break)

Your hair and, yeah, that jacket arm 
When I last saw you leaning there 
Smoking my tangled arm 
And your sad golden pearls 
I lean to kiss the silent lips 
And you vanished in thin air

Where have you gone Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean 
Where have you gone my handsome young man 
Where have you gone Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean 
There's a crack in the wall 
And it's earthquake weatherproof

Where Have You Gone Jimmy Dean

OtherAccording to Alan Bershaw, Jewel's archivist, "This is not a Jewel song. It is by Joy Eden Harrison and the version that commonly circulates as Jewel was recorded at a 1994 Inner Change show, where Joy also performed. Jewel is not on this song. However Jewel and Joy did collaborate on another song called "The Man Who's Already Gone" around this same time."
