So Long Jimmy
James Blunt Lyrics


I just can't believe that it's over
We were chilling out on the sofa
Digging how the guitar goes
In a song that no one knows
Did you lick that line yourself
Or did the voodoo magic help?
Does everyone have a different take?
Do you seem real but I seem fake?
Does everyone get hypnotized by your fire?
So long Jimmy, so long
Though you only stayed a moment
We all know that you're the one singing
So long Jimmy, so long
Sure we're glad for the experience
We miss you now you've gone
We're just swimming in your soul
'Cause we all wish we wrote this song
Life goes on

I'm just so relieved that it's over
We were hanging out, going nowhere
Digging how the guitar goes
In a song that no one knows
Did you burn that bridge yourself
Or did the voodoo magic help?
Does everyone have a different take?
Are you just cool and I'm just baked?
Does everyone get mesmerized by your fire?

So long Jimmy, so long
Though you only stayed a moment
We all know that you're the one singing
So long Jimmy, so long
Sure we're glad for the experience
We miss you now you've gone
We're just swimming in your soul
'Cause we all wish we wrote this song
Life goes on

One of only albums I could let play through every song.

Puddle Zerg

everyone was focused on song #2


It was in the charts in the UK for what felt like eons.

Daniel Rainey

That's the point, the song is a tribute to Jimmy hendrix and Jim morrison, listen to the lyrics and all will become clear.

There's something delightfully mischievous about this tune, which goes perfectly with the well-chosen lyrics and harmony. Brilliant! And the whole album is great! :-)
