about

Carmen and I wrote this song to go with the video that was already planned for my “Uncle Jimmy”. I had seen a bunch of
clips of Jimmy and I as kids and wanted to do the song/video. So, we wrote the song over the course of February, while
I concurrently worked on the video. Finished the video on 3/1/2015.

lyrics

ME 'N' UNCLE JIMMY

Mama was a young'un on the day that I was born
Married then, but barely seventeen
Grandma had a toddler still, just a baby boy
And luckily they lived just down the street

Me 'n' uncle Jimmy made quite a pair
Me 'n' uncle Jimmy played without a care
Me 'n' uncle Jimmy back 'n we were young
Me 'n' uncle Jimmy had a whole lotta fun

They'd put me on his lap and he would hold me carefully
Always makin' sure that I was safe
Then cowboys and indians or fire engine runs
And everything turned out to be a race

Me 'n' uncle Jimmy made quite a pair
Me 'n' uncle Jimmy played without a care
Me 'n' uncle Jimmy back 'n we were young
Me 'n' uncle Jimmy had a whole lotta fun

[INSTRUMENTAL CHORUS]

Jimmy always stood out - as far as uncles go
With hair just as red as it could be
Everything was better when my uncle was around
And he was just a kid, like me

Me 'n' uncle Jimmy made quite a pair
Me 'n' uncle Jimmy played without a care
Me 'n' uncle Jimmy back 'n we were young
Me 'n' uncle Jimmy had a whole lotta fun

[INSTRUMENTAL CHORUS]

Me 'n' uncle Jimmy made quite a pair
Me 'n' uncle Jimmy played without a care
Me 'n' uncle Jimmy back 'n we were young
Me 'n' uncle Jimmy had a whole lotta fun
