Who's singing Jim's songs...?



Free Lyrics, Chords & MP3s 

Sometimes I Wake Up Naked | American Dream | Bonus Disk 
Dance Like No-one Is Watching | Other Songs

Here they are. Every song from both of Jim's albums, with its corresponding lyrics, chord chart, and full sound file. We hope you enjoy them, learn them, and sing them as often and as far and wide as you can.

A note about the quality of the sound files. In order to save space on our server, all low quality sound files include a full  recording of the song at low bit rates of around 32-40 Kbps.

The high quality sound files are 60-90 second samples only recorded at 96 Kbps. This not only keeps the sound files small, but by reducing the size of each file, it ensures you spend the minimum amount of time waiting for each song to download to your computer.

Dance Like No-one Is Watching...

Jim's third album, Dance Like No-one Is Watching, will be released some time in 2006. Jim is currently recording these songs at his home studio. As each song is completed, an audio sample will be added here, so check back regularly to see what has been added to the site. Alternatively, join Jim's mailing list, and we will let you know each time a new song has been added to the site.

At the time of writing this, Jim has yet to decide which songs will make the final release of Dance Like No-one Is Watching. Most of the songs listed below, should be on the album - but you never know... Depending on what Jim writes between now and the release of the album, there could be several new titles here taking the place of those currently listed.
