Any Old TIme
Jimmie Rodgers Lyrics


Oh ley-he-he-he, ah-le-oh-lay-he-he-he
D'yo-del-ay-he-he, d'yo-del-ay-hee

I just received your letter
You're down and out, you say
At first I thought I would tell you
To travel on the other way

But in my memory lingers
All you once were to me
I'm going to give you another chance
To prove what you can be

Any old time you want to come back home
Drop me a line and say, no more you'll roam
You had your chance to play the game fair
And when you left me, sweetheart you only left a load of care

Now that you're down I'm going to stick by you
If you will only say your roaming days are through

You'll find me here like the day you left me alone
Any old time you wanna come back home

You'll find me right here like the day you left me alone
Any old time you wanna come back home, home, home

Read a few of the comments here regarding Taylor Swift.

Believe it or not, yesterday I heard my first song by her, while driving in to work on the radio.

I turned it off about two minutes into it. And I would have never figured that it could possibly be considered as a country music song.

Yeah...that is....pretty damned awful stuff.

You'd never know it, judging from all the hype that I have only READ.

I can only imagine how revolutionary this was when it was released, as it fools the listener into thinking it's going to be one of Jimmie's guitar-and-vocal songs, but then all of a sudden this sophisticated jazz orchestra comes in. It's brilliant, such a beautiful mixing of musical styles. This music didn't exist at the time, he and his accompanists and arrangers were inventing it as they went along. Borrowing from various sources of course, as everyone does, but putting the pieces back together into something new.

One of the best comments of all the Jimmie videos, so spot on. Cheers!!

Pagan Morph

Excellent comments and very true, The melody was invented as they went along. Just superb,

Karl Scheich

mretrain I agree, it’s beyond the beginnings of county music, has flavors of jazz, blues as well. Just a brilliant revolutionary style of music! I love it!!

Paul Herring

"The Father of Country Music". At least in those days it was different from pop music. What a classic this is!

When I was a kid, in the 60's, a brother-in-law gave my mother a 33 1/3 album, a compilation of Jimmi's songs. I HATED that OLD, scratchy JUNK. BUT, Jimmie had the last word. The more I listened, the more I liked it. After a while, I LOVED IT! Love it so much I've visited the Jimmie Rodgers Museum and his grave a few times, and plan on going again. Thank you for doing your part to keep this musical tradition going.

Merle Haggard made an album of JR's songs called "Same Train Different Time". Best album I ever bought.

April Wehrman

Really..!!?! WOW.. thx for the info.. 😍😎🍻🎩🇺🇸

Pagan Morph

Snap! Me too!

Richard Warren

That was one great album. One of my favorite Haggard albums. If you are familiar with the music of Jimmie Rodgers, you can appreciate the true genius of Merle Haggard in reproducing the sound of The Singing Brakeman, both instrumentally and vocally.
