Jimmy Hunter, is a BMI affiliated professional songwriter and BMI publisher.



JAMES ADDISON HUNTER JR (BMI)
"Jimmy Hunter"
(professional stage name)
is a Los Angeles based
singer / songwriter / drummer / producer / vocalist / vocal coach / "CAZADOR Recording" studio owner.
FYI - Over 5,000 songs have been produced by Hunter at CAZADOR since 1986!!!


Jimmy aka "Jimbo"
was born in the famous NASCAR town of Martinsville, Virginia on December 16th, 1950.
As a child, he also lived in Richmond and Roanoke, Virginia.
When Jimmy was 10, his family moved to the little town of Flushing, Michigan - just outside of Flint.
A few years later, after his parents got divorced, Jimmy relocated as a teenager to Detroit, Michigan.
Barely out of high school, Hunter ended up a top professional Detroit area drummer
and eventually moved to Los Angeles at age 25 in 1975
to drum for keyboardist Ray Manzarek RIP of The Doors' mid 70's Supergroup, NITE CITY.


This country-rock music song collection is Jimmy's way of lyrically expressing
the life he remembers as these songs revisit his times of growing up spending summers and holidays
in rural Surry County, Virginia around his grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins
in a music character he portrays who he calls "Buffalo Jimbo."
Hunter skillfully blends his brand of unique country stylings
with his Blues, Motown and Rock 'n' Roll experience, sensibilities and nuances.
We hope you will find these "Jimbo" tunes to possess a sound and flavor which is all his own
and it will take a tug on the heartstrings of both his new listeners and many die-hard fans.

VERSE 1
I go early to bed - I'm the first to rise
Kiss my wife 'fore she opens her eyes
Then I help get the kids off to school . . . mmm
Another country day . . . yeah
Got a truckload 'o chores and a part time job
Try'na make ends meet - gotta stay on top
Yeah . . . just another country day

B SECTION 1
Another sunny mornin' - big temptation
Box o' bait at the old gas station- plenty o' line . . .
Six beers with my cousin - two before lunch
Jerky and rinds in case I need to munch 'fo suppa time
(I got an attitude o' gratitude)

CHORUS 1
I just wanna thank You for another country day
The fish are flyin' out the pond and my barn is full o' hay
Take the day off if I want to . . . mend a fence can always wait
Lord, I thank You for another country day

VERSE 2
You may not like the way I live my life
My redneck style and my strong advice
Bet you get over it soon
Easy does it . . . it's just my country ways (another country day)
I wear a tattered t-shirt with a hole in my jeans
But I got out of bed, an' put-em on and they're clean
Yeah . . . every country day (every day)

B SECTION 2
Another sunny mornin' -- on the radio station
I turn it up LOUD cuz it's a free nation (or so I've been told) . . .
Some of the folks 'round here are 'bout as real as they come
Can't please 'em all but I'm friends with some
And I'm thankful for that . . . Oh Lord!

CHORUS 2
I just wanna thank You for another country day
The fish are flyin' out the pond and my barn is full o' hay
Take the day off if I want to . . . mend a fence can always wait
Lord, I thank You for another country day

BRIDGE
I thank you for everything
For my friends and family
Thank you for the USA and all that keeps us free
Can't get enough - get enough . . . I can't get enough country days

SOLO (Paul Tokarz)

. . . Ooooo Lord!

CHORUS 3
I just wanna thank You for another country day
The fish are flyin' out the pond and my barn is full o' hay

Lord, I thank You for another country day
(This day is 'bout as good as it gets "right cheer")

With a high strut that can turn a head an' then some

Creole Blues and some bayou crawdaddy . . .

VERSE 1
Honey you're the kind 'o girl that gets on my last nerve

Just when I'm feelin' like a quitin' us week after week
You love me so strong you make me turn the other cheek

You just drop the damn mic
You're too much. . . and that's what I like babe

And give it one more try unless you think your way is better

Cuz you're too much... Baby you're too much

Practically every day
In the land of lost tomorrows
We both chose to stay

But the food just don't taste the same

There's plenty of time to think
Everything will work out for the best
I can live without a drink

Our family chain is tore and broken

If we could start all over
And try to turn things around
If somehow I could stay sober
And you would give us one more try --

Like I never loved before

For a broken heart could never hold me back...

I called you twice to apologize
To try to make amends

And all the things that we wanted
That was special, good, and true

Save me . . . I'm fading fast
From holdin' on to a love that's past

VERSE 1
I met you at the bar we had a conversation
Bought you little drink you showed no hesitation

You called me on the telephone with some complication
I really loved the night - the candle light 'til dawn
But I don't know you well enough to miss you when you're gone

VERSE 2
I don't own you - you don't own me
We rented a time and space - set the evening free

But I don't know you well enough to miss you when you're gone

And the pages are way too long

For major kind o' money down to nickels an' a dime

Said I don't know you well enough to miss you when you're gone

VERSE 2
Well I can smell smoked bacon and the pecan pie - and mama Sarah's fried corn at the Sunday fish fry
A shot o' Bubba's bourbon at the brunswick stew - where Paw Paw's puddle jumper's packin' pints of (fresh) home brew
I like huntin' wild turkey and some white tailed deer All the gals cook 'em up while the men are drinkin' beer
With my good ol' boys - I'm telling "stories" not lies 'Bout the 12 point buck i shot right between the eyes
("Hell no that wuddun no doe")

CHORUS 2
I bought a little chunk o' land and with a teensie bit o luck
I get to carry you down the lane in my pickup truck
But if it looks like rain silver clouds in the sky
I'll take the rest of the day off - we can stay inside
Whooo my oh my - I'm a country guy
I'm a - I'm a - I'm a - I'm a country guy

BRIDGE
I go to church on Sunday, work on monday...
I'm up before the crack o' dawn
Stayin' on top o' the weather is my number one job
And if it don't rain soon I'll lose my cotton crop

SPOKEN OUTRO FOR LONG VERSION

Whooo I'm a country guy!
You better believe I'm in the country!
Where else would i be? (laughs)
I'm gon' break it down and tell you a little bit about it...
Butter beans, shelling peas, snaps, taters and maters
Home-made ice cream mmm mmm mmm
Now I can make a meal out o' this here
Now y'all know what I'm fixin' to do?
Tractor pulls, four-wheelin', mud-boggin' down a dirt road
Pickin' and grinnin', shuckin' and jivin'
And drinking beers 'round a bonfire
Talkin' 'bout the good ol' times
Catfishin' on the mighty James River huh
Catchin' 'em and eatin' 'em too! (laughs)
Oh Lawd!
Smokin' squirrels out the tree hollah
Or goin' barefoot... (after the bumble bees come)
Frog giggin' . . .
Crawfish jackin' . . .
That's right (ha ha ha)

Now that's country! (in radio voice)

01. CAN WE COME UP FOR AIR?
Words & Melody by Jimmy Hunter / Music by Jimmy Hunter & Paul Tokarz
vocals, drums, bass - Jimmy Hunter
all guitars - Paul Tokarz

VERSE 1
Her skin is softer than the Gulf Coast sand
Plays country music - private beach gettin' tan
Her Daddy buys her anything that she wants
But she don't care about the money or people who flaunt

I met her down in some Biloxi honky tonk
We did some drinkin' after I sang her a couple o' songs
How'd we end up on Padre Island that night?
I still recall that I was drivin' one-eyed!

BSECTION 1
Pertiest gal you've ever seen
She's like a beauty queen
An' I had to hold my breath
Cuz she was kissin' me to death

CHORUS 1
Baby can we come up for air?
I really don't care 'bout time or space anymore
Help me! Help me! Girl I'm drowning in your love
An' I hope I ain't a' goin' down for the last time
No no no

VAMP
Save me . . . whoa

VERSE 2
She lives a life a leisure that you can't knock
I got a trailer up in North Little Rock
My budget runs on a little bit tighter shoestring
And she likes the finer things more money can bring

Now we try to compromise an' make things work out
Champagne and grits is what I'm talking' about
She digs horse racin' and she usually wins
Got myself in deep water - I'm a have to sink or swim

B SECTION 2
Pertiest gal you've ever seen
She's like a beauty queen
Still have to hold my breath
Cuz she's still kissin' me to death

CHORUS 2
Baby can we come up for air?
I really don't care 'bout time or space anymore
Help me! Help me! Girl I'm drowning in your love
An' I hope I ain't a' goin' down for the last time
No no no

BRIDGE
I went 'n put my guard down
She caught me by surprise
I didn't see this big wave coming
When I looked in those green eyes

SOLO
Paul Tokarz

CHORUS 3
Can we come up for air?
I really don't care 'bout time or space anymore
Help me! Help me! Girl I'm drowning in your love
An' I hope I ain't a' goin' down for the last time
No no no

VERSE 1
Well I knew I had to workin the mornin'
When I went out last night at ten
Look at me - history repeatin' istelf
Guess I'm back on the wagon again
Had my share of good and bad times
And I could drink at the drop of a hat
Figured out that wuddun any life at all
I was just so full of crap

CHORUS 1
I put on those bad day shoes
Kickin' that backwoods country blues
Pickin' guitars - gettin' back to my roots
Sneakin' right out of them cowboy boots
Singin' why you wanna have to hurt me today
Too tight to wear - I wore 'em anyway
Normally I'd refuse
But back in the day I put on those bad day shoes

VAMP
diddle diddle diddle diddle diddle diddle dadda bang bang

VERSE 2
Some days you can't help but get up
On the wrong side of the bed
Could'a been somethin' I was dreamin'
Laced with somethin' that she said
Spent many a day loafin' 'round the house
I would drink, fuss and hollah
But when I put one foot in front of the other
My ass is gonna follah

CHORUS 2
I put on those bad day shoes
Kickin' that backwoods country blues
Pickin' guitars - gettin' back to my roots
Sneakin' right out of them cowboy boots
Singin' why you wanna have to hurt me today
Too tight to wear - I wore 'em anyway
Normally I'd refuse
But back in the day I put on those bad day shoes
HELL YEAH!

SOLO

BRIDGE
Now there's one more definition
For how a man to "keep things green"
Won't ever forget what it was like
I gotta remember how low I've been
There's stuff out there that'll kill ya
Like people, places and things
The forces that be'll make ya lose control
Of a life clean livin'brings

CHORUS 3
I put on those bad day shoes
Kickin' that backwoods country blues
Pickin' guitars - gettin' back to my roots
Sneakin' right out of them cowboy boots
Singin' why you wanna have to hurt me today
Too tight to wear - I wore 'em anyway
Normally I'd refuse
But back in the day I put on those bad day shoes

TAG
Hey
Ordinarily I'd refuse
But back in the day I put on those bad day shoes
(They're just too tight for comfort)

vocals, drums, bass - Jimmy Hunter
all guitars - Paul Tokarz

VERSE 1
Don't mean to sound needy baby
An' I know this may sound crazy
But I think I'm gonna have to pull back now
To get myself on track just a little bit
Ain't nothin' that you said hon'
Wuddun' nothin' that you went an' done
Things just came unfolded
Like a cat in a laundry basket

VERSE 2
We had a good run honey
Spent a lot of time and money
Findin' out what this life's about
Sharin' love together no doubt about it
It's way hard to say goodbye

I got to find my own way
I been puttin' it off but today's the day

B SECTION 1
I've come to my conclusion

CHORUS 1
I need a game changer
A real life re-arranger

From this broken heart
I need some fresh road
I'm rollin' locked and loaded
Girl don't treat me like a stranger
I need a game changer

VERSE 2
My head's full of good time memories
And I prayed down on my knees
That I'd to the right thing by ya
I let go - but the feelin's linger
Hadda search in my soul
Dug deep down to places I don't go much
Face the fear of loneliness
Imperfect I confess

B SECTION 2
I've come to my conclusion

CHORUS 2
I need a game changer
A real life re-arranger
I need a jump start
From this broken heart

Girl don't treat me like a stranger
I need a game changer

Realized I can't change nobody but myself
And finger pointin' ain't the right way to go
An' it took forever to muster up this courage
An' I always had big love for you - I need you to know

That ain't what I'm gon' find
No finger pointin' 'bout no errors or sins
At the end of the day nobody loses or wins

Some like it hot . . . Some'll treat ya cold . . .

Been slammin' up against the wall . . .
Clownin' with another man's wife
She's got me behind the barrel --

But he got off another round as well
Now my playin' days are through

This ain't my first rodeo

VERSE 1
Is your butt gettin' jealous of all the crap
Comin' out a your mouth o' yours lately?
Askin' me where you been, who you hangin' out with
Aint' no rhyme or reason to be hatin' on me

B SEC 1

Somebody's standing in the wings
Bet you don't know what's been on my mind
It's time to tell you a couple o' things

CHORUS 1
I could'n care less - I could'n care less
If you're in the back yard in those Daisy Duke's
Or rockin' that little red party dress
I could'n care less - I could'n care less
Whether you're rollin' in your daddy's ol' puddle jump truck
Or layin' in my bed half dressed
Only you know how to please me
No other gal could ever tease me
Forget about all the rest
I . . . could'n care less

VERSE 2
Now if you'd just face your stuff instead o' stuffin' your face
And try to listen to learn and learn to listen
We got time invested, we're tried and tested
We gotta good thang - ain't nothin' missin'

When you start sayin' ya think I been playin'
We roll into a vicious cycle
While then night's still young we oughta get this done
And clean up this ol' debacle

I could'n care less - I could'n care less
If you're in the back yard in those Daisy Duke's
Or rockin' that little red party dress

Whether you're rollin' in your daddy's ol' puddle jump truck
Or layin' in my bed half dressed
Only you know how to please me
No other gal could ever tease me
Forget about all the rest
I . . . could'n care less

How many times we been down this road?

Stop puttin' my love on the line

I could'n care less - I could'n care less
If you're in the back yard in those Daisy Duke's
Or rockin' that little red party dress
I could'n care less - I could'n care less
Whether you're rollin' in your daddy's ol' puddle jump truck
Or layin' in my bed half dressed
Only you know how to please me
No other gal could ever tease me
Forget about all the rest
I could'n care - could'n care - could'n care less

TAG
Only you know how to please me
No other gal could ever tease me
Forget about all the rest
I . . . Oh I could'n care less

An' I said are those yer wheels can we go for a ride?

So deep in the woods - liable to get stuck

14_THEY WASHED AWAY
Words & music by Jimmy Hunter
vocals, drums, bass, piano, strings - Jimmy Hunter
all guitars - Mark Christian

VERSE 1
Rocks on the water, wearin' sea green moss covered in foam
Two lovers turnin' stumblin' blocks into steppin' stones . . . mmm
Barefootin' on the beach at night, sandpipers, gulls and whales
The golden sunset bids the day farewell we tread lightly over the shells . . . yeah

B SECTION 1
She drew two layered hearts in the sand with her fingertips
I took a picture with one hand, with the other, caressed her lips
I only wanted a memory - a little token I could save
Then suddenly it all disappeared from an unexpected wave

CHORUS 1
She was only writin' me love letters in the sand . . .
They washed away . . .
And I would never return to sender - cause we had other plans
They washed away

VERSE 2
Maybe we were stuck on stupid, or could o' been blinded by the night ... mmm
We cut a loose naked on that shore, smokin' funny cigarettes and drankin' white wine (uh huh)
I never had a better lover and believe me I've had a few . . .
I never had to say one word to her, she knew exactly what to do . . . mmm

B SECTION 2
I took her hand and held it one last time as we walked in the water
We never ever thought to look back behind us as the tide came in - it caught her
She never knew how to fight the struggle, to come back to the top
You gotta hold your breath - keep your eye on the bubbles til the rush of the moment stops

CHORUS 2
She was only writin' me love letters in the sand . . .
They washed away . . .
And I would never return to sender - cause we had other plans
They washed away

BRIDGE
They say metaphysically water is your emotions
Maybe it's only me - I believe in the power of oceans
I'll never forget I had the time of my life with the girl of my wildest dreams
When the night came down she never said goodbye, as the water washed us clean

CHORUS 3
She was only writin' me love letters in the sand . . .
And I would never return to sender - cause we had other plans
They washed away

CHORUS 4
She was only writin' me love letters in the sand . . .
They washed away . . .
And I would never return to sender - cause we had other plans
They washed away
