lyrics

Momma
I know I always stay out too late, drinkin' and carousin'. Your friends all recommend you make me find some different housin'. If you ever can forgive me for my low down, dirty ways, I promise that I'll try to make it up to you someday... I know you disapprove of all the company I keep. We all make too much noise while normal people try to sleep. Drinkin', yellin', havin' fun... with sleazy women, booze and guns... got no direction, no income... the hole I'm in is deep... But, Momma, Momma... You know I love you, yes I do... always can depend on you... Momma, I know you care for me, although; Most things that I do offend you, ain't found Gawd I don't intend to. Don't like Jesus, don't pretend to. But if he asks, I'll recommend you... tell 'im just how good you' been to me. I disappear into the woods, and wander 'round for days... I come out cold and dirty in a misanthropic haze. You prob'ly think that I am crazy, stupid, drunk or just plain lazy, wasted all that money an' I don't have a degree.... I crashed my car, and then I crashed yours, now I just don't drive. It's prob'ly just a silly fluke that I am still alive. But, for all my flaws and mishaps in the greater scheme of life, it's not your fault, everything that you did for me was right. Momma, Momma... You know I love you, yes I do... always can depend on you...Momma, I know you care for me, although; Most things that I do offend you, ain't found Gawd I don't intend to. Don't like Jesus, don't pretend to. But if he asks, I'll recommend you... But he don't love you as much as I do, you're the best, there's no one like you, I'll tell 'em just how good you've been to me.

about

Jim Lake Placid, New York

Jim is a mediocre rock band from upstate NY. Formed by a few starry-eyed, twenty-somehings in the mid 90's, they (along with a slew of other marginal, regional rock bands peopled by over-priveleged young men) achieved virtually nothing. At great expense.
They persevered through 10 years, 5 albums, a few requisite lineup changes, and countless stupid, awkward and unremarkable live performances.
