Jimmy Was Here

Lyrics

Jimmy was a quite kid, never did no one harm
Raise by his grandma lil, she never paid him no mind
He grew up running free, standing on the edge of fate
Thoughts and prayers are
Thoughts and prayers are
Always too late

Jimmy liked to skip school, sniff a little tube of glue
If we don’t teach the kid, his dreams will never come true
He came back shakin’ at school, they sent him home for the day
Thoughts and prayers are
Thoughts and prayers are
Always too late

Jimmy had nothing to do, with all his friends in school
There’s not much he can learn, lying at the bottom of a pool
We gave up on him, we failed to educate
Thoughts and prayers are
Thoughts and prayers are
Always too late

Here lies Jimmy an unknown soul in the war on drugs
One child left behind without kisses and hugs
We can’t give up on our kids
So keep’m in your thoughts
And keep’m in your prayers
But don’t you let’m be to late

Jimmy signed my yearbook, thirty years ago this day
He wrote above his name, Jimmy was here today
He could make me laugh, he was good classmate
My thoughts and prayers were
My thoughts and prayers were
A little too late

Jimmy was here today
Jimmy was here today
Jimmy was here today
So don’t forget him
In your thoughts and prayers
