Lyrics
Now I wished I was back at old Jim Canaan's
I'd stand on the corner and I'd wave my hand
If you don't b'lieve that I'm a drinkin' man
Well stop by here baby with your beer can
Yes I wished I was back at old Jim Canaan's
I'd take my babe back to old Jim Canaan's
Wished I was back at old Jim Canaan's

Now I'm going uptown, going buy me c**e and beer
And I'm comin' back here tell you how these women here
They drink their whiskey, drink their c**e and gin
And if you don't play the dozens, they will ease you in
Yes I wished I was back at old Jim Canaan's
I'd take my babe back to old Jim Canaan's
Wished I was back at old Jim Canaan's
Yes I believe I'd take my babe back to old Jim Canaan's

Well these men and women runnin' hand in hand
You now they're going to and fro
Goin' down to old Jim Canaan's
Drink their whiskey, they sniff cocaine
And that is why I wished I's back at old Jim Canaan's
I wished I was back at old Jim Canaan's
Well I'd take my babe back to old Jim Canaan's
Wished I was back at old Jim Canaan's
Yes, I believe I'd take my babe back to old Jim Canaan's

Wished I was back at old Jim Canaan's
Well I believe I'd take my babe back to old Jim Canaan's
Wished I was back at old Jim Canaan's
