Johnny Bush – Jim, Jack and Rose Lyrics

These three close friends and I
Get together every night
At the Tavern at Broadway and First
Then we sit way in the back
Me and Jim, Rose and Jack
Where we silently work on my thirst

Jim Beam, Jack Daniels and Sweet Gypsy Rose
Their always wherever I go
Their the only friends I got
And I’m proud I’ve got to know
Jim Beam, Jack Daniels and Sweet Gypsy Rose

Real friends who understand,
They don’t resist my shaky hand
They sit and listen and I never must insist
Gypsy Rose watches my eyes,
And if she thinks I’m about to cry
She caresses my lips with her kiss

Jim Beam, Jack Daniels and Sweet Gypsy Rose
Their always wherever I go
Their the only friends I’ve got
And I’m proud I got to know
Jim Beam, Jack Daniels and Sweet Gypsy Rose
