My Morning Jacket sings 5 Bob Dylan songs – Happy Birthday Jim James

I think that’s one of the coolest things about Bob Dylan — that nobody really knows what the fuck goes on with him. And that’s great. That’s awesome. That’s how it should be.
–> Jim James (to Matt Sullivan – 2011)

James Edward Olliges Jr. (born April 27, 1978), professionally known as Jim James or Yim Yames, is an American vocalist, guitarist, producer, and primary songwriter of the rock band My Morning Jacket. He has also released several solo albums.

You’re a Big Girl Now

Our conversation was short and sweet
It nearly swept me off my feet
And I’m back in the rain, oh
And you are on dry land
You made it there somehow
You’re a big girl now


From the album “Chimes of Freedom: Songs of Bob Dylan” (2012)

The Man In Me

The man in me will do nearly any task
And as for compensation, there’s little he would ask
Take a woman like you
To get through to the man in me


Live at Brown-Forman Ampitheater – 2004-06-18

Like a Rolling Stone

Once upon a time you dressed so fine
Threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn’t you?
People call say ‘beware doll, you’re bound to fall’
You thought they were all kidding you

Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door

Mama take this badge from me
I can’t use it anymore
It’s getting dark too dark to see
Feels like I’m knockin’ on heaven’s door

Goin’ To Acapulco

Calexico & Jim James

I’m going down to Rose Marie’s,
She never does me wrong,
She puts it to me plain as day
And gives it to me for a song.
