1. Goodbye Jim

From the recording Goodbye Jim

I had just heard the news of the passing of jim McReynolds of "Jim and Jesse, and the Virginia Boys." I remember hearing them on radio in Augusta, GA in 1950 or 1951. They were truly pioneers of BlueGrass and Country music.


Jim was a music man; He played in a traveling band.  He had many friends from far and near,  And that's why I declare;
There was nobody quite like Jim.  I'm so glad we got to know him;  A man from Virginia, tall and slim,  There was nobody quite like Jim.
