Description / lyrics
(Dana Hunt Oglesby/Danny M. Wells)

Jimmy was born in Bethlehem, Georgia
He grew up to be a carpenter by trade
We met four years ago on a job site
Said he´d just turned 29 on Christmas Day

Jimmy always had a hammer in his hand
I can still hear him driving those tenpenny nails
But Sunday morning you´d find him at the Baptist church
Giving thanks for his family, friends and his health

Jimmy and Jesus sure did have a lot in common
Both born in December in a town with the same name
Jimmy and Jesus worked hard every day
Tryin´ to make this world a better place

His weekly paycheck barely paid his bills
Yet he could always find an extra ten to lend a friend
You´d hear them say "we´ll pay ya back on Friday"
But he´d say "Don´t worry about it"
And just look at them and grin

Jimmy and Jesus sure did have a lot in common
They´d give you the shirt right off their back
Jimmy and Jesus worked hard every day
Tryin´ to make this old world a better place

Looking back I can´t forget that rainy April afternoon
I slipped and fell while me and Jimmy were working on a roof
He reached out and saved me from fallin´ down
But then he lost his balance and tumbled to the ground
Jimmy and Jesus sure did have a lot in common
They lived their lives unselfishly
And died to save a friend
Jimmy and Jesus worked hard everyday
Tryin´ to make this old world a better place
Tryin´ to make this old world a better place
