Bimbombey
Jimmie Rodgers Lyrics


Bimbombey, Bimbombey
On the way to Bimbombey
There's a hill on the way to Bimbombey
There's a house on the hill and a girl in the house
On the hill on the way to Bimbombey
A house on the hill and a girl in the house
On the hill on the way to Bimbombey

[Chorus:]
Jing-a-ling-a-lyoh (Jing-a-ling-a-lyoh)
Jing-a-ling-a-lyay (Jing-a-ling-a-lyay)
Jing-a-ling-a-ly, jing-a-ling-a-ly
Jing-a-ling-a-lyay-ay-ay
Jing-a-ling-a-lyay (Jing-a-ling-a-lyay)

There's a store in Bimbombey
There's a ring in the store in Bimbombey
That's where I'll buy the ring for the girl in the house
On the hill on the way to Bimbombey
I'll buy the ring for the girl in the house
On the hill on the way to Bimbombey

[Chorus]

Once I get to Bimbombey
You can bet I will stay in Bimbombey
That's where I'll settle down with the girl in the house
On the hill on the way to Bimbombey
I'll settle down with the girl in the house
On the hill on the way to Bimbombey

[Chorus]

Bimbombey
Bimbombey
Bimbombey

Closed my eyes, I see and feel those beautiful atmospheres back to 60 years ago the time when I was 6 years of age. Wonderful feeling !

Love the simplistic guitar rhythm and the brushes ....great record proucing b Hugo and Luigi, 50's style....and of course, adding the voice of Jimmie Rodgers makes it magic!

Owen King

it's nice to live in a world with Jimmy Rogers, always loved his music, made a great impression on me from the very beginning

When this song came out I was in Kindergarten and our teacher, Mrs. Levi used have us sing it. Hard to believe it was 61 years ago !

...I remember hearing this song on someone's transistor radio in the summer of 1958 while I was in CYO summer day camp in Fort Lee, NJ. We were in a bus going to the Hostess Bakery in Weehawken - I was between 4th & 5th grades and 8 years old...

I am driving home from work.  I am a nurse and drive one hour to and then back another hour from work.  I have finally found some time to listen to the radio.  So, there I was, halfway home and BIMBOMBEY came on my Sirius radio station.   Boy, his voice was so clear and beautiful.  Immediately had to call my husband.  When I got home I pulled it up on YouTube.  My husband, who knows all music, immediately said, 'that sounds like Jimmie Rodgers.'  I told him how much I loved listening to his voice, and the melody was heavenly upbeat, especially compared to todays tunes (YUCK).  All I can say is THANK YOU JIMMIE RODGERS-GOD HAS BLESSED YOU.-
