Sound Files & Song Lyrics

Note: The songs and lyrics accessible from this page are here because they have not yet appeared on one of Jim's albums, nor are they scheduled to do so at this time. Those songs that are already available on CD (or soon to be so), have their own separate songs, lyrics and sound files pages on this web site. Use the links under The Albums... area of the menu on the left, to access that material. 


Unless otherwise specified, the Copyright for all songs published within this Internet Web Site are held by Jim Lesses and the unauthorised copying, publishing, or performance of these songs is strictly prohibited. Note the accent on 'unauthorised'. Jim is more than happy for people to sing these songs, after all, that is why he has provided the lyrics, and in many cases, chord charts and sound files (we're adding the rest as fast as Jim can record them). All he asks is that you contact him first and let him know.

Actually, Jim would be even happier if he could sing them to you himself. If you want to book him for a show, visit the Bookings Page now.
