I met the author of this one. He said he didn't make it up:

Reuben James
In my song you live again
And the phrases that I rhyme
Are just the footsteps out of time
From the time when I knew you Reuben James

Reuben James
All the folks around Madison County cussed your name
You're just a no-account, sharecropping colored man
That would steal anything he can
And everybody laid the blame on Reuben James

[Chorus]
Reuben James
You still walk the fertile fields of my mind
The faded shirt, the weathered brow
The calloused hands upon the plow
I loved you then and I loved you now
Reuben James

Flora Grey
The gossiper of Madison County died with child
And although your skin was black
You were the one that didn't turn your back
On the hungry white child with no name
Reuben James

Reuben James
With your mind on my soul
And a Bible in your right hand
You said "Turn the other cheek
For there's a better world awaitin' for the meek."
In my mind these words remain from Reuben James

Reuben James
One dark cloudy day they brought you from the field
And to your lonely pinebox came
And just a preacher and me in the rain
Just to sing one last refrain for Reuben James

^ he unburies his baby back? (the narrator I mean... not Sal Mineo)




The narrator here seems to know something about Jimmy Jazz... but he won't tell



not sure if I understand the plot but like it cat



The police walked in for Jimmy Jazz
I said, he ain't here, but he sure went past
Oh, you're looking for Jimmy Jazz

Sattamassagana for Jimmy Dread
Cut off his ears and chop off his head
Police came looking for Jimmy Jazz

So if you're gonna take a message 'cross this town
Maybe put it down somewhere over the other side
See it gets to Jimmy Jazz (See)

So tell me now
Police come in they said
Now, Where's Jimmy Jazz?
I said, hmm he was here but uh,
He said he went out
Who is it they're looking for?
Jimmy Jazz, Jazz, Jazz, Jazz eh

Sattamassagana for Jimmy Dread
Cut off his ears and they'll chop off his head
Oh you're looking for
Jimmy Jazz, Jazz...

What a relief!
I feel like a soldier,
But I look like a thief!

The police walked in for Jimmy Jazz
I said, he ain't here, but he sure went past
Oh, you're look for Jimmy Jazz

Don't you bother me, not anymore
I can't take this tale, oh, no more
It's all around, Jimmy Jazz

J-a-zee zee J-a-zed zed
J-a-zed zed Jimmy Jazz
And then it sucks
He said, suck that!
So go look all around, you can try your luck, brother
ANd see what you found
But I guarantee you that it ain't your day
Your time, it ain't your day

Chop! Chop!
