Jimmy Bell

This song is by Mike Doughty and appears on the album The Flip Is Another Honey (2012).

This song is a cover of "Jimmy Bell" by Cat Iron.
Jimmy Bell's in town
Oh Lord, he's walkin' around
He's got greenbacks enough, sweet babe,
To make a man a suit
Make a man a suit, make a man a suit,
He's got greenbacks, enough, sweet babe,
Make a man a suit.

Jimmy Bell told the sisters,
"Oh, you need not shout
If you don't pay your monthly fees
I'm gonna turn you out
Gonna turn you out, gonna turn you out
If you don't pay your monthly fee
Gonna turn you out.

Jimmy Bell in the pulpit
The Bible in his hand
Oh them sisters sitting back in the corner cryin',
"Jimmy Bell my man.
Jimmy Bell my man, Jimmy Bell my man."
Oh them sisters sitting back in the corner cryin'
"Jimmy Bell my man."

Jimmy Bell told the sexton,
"Go and tone the bell,
'Cause some of these old members here
Sure is going to hell.
Sure is going to hell, sure is going to hell,
'Cause some of these old members here
Sure is going to hell."

Jimmy Bell told his wife
Told his wife that night,
"If the times don't get no better here
Up the road I'm goin'.
Up the road I'm goin', up the road I'm going,
If the times don't get no better here
Up the road I'm goin'."
