Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Uptown got it's hustlers - bowery got it's bums
42nd Street got Big Jim Walker
He's a pool-shootin'

Allemande left and weave the ring
You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Jim


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru 4 now
Swing thru, boy run right
Half tag, girl run, reverse flutter wheel, sweep 1/4
Veer right, the boy cross run, promenade
You don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Jim


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
South Alabama came a country boy
He said I'm lookin' for a man named Jim
I am a pool-shootin' boy, my name is Willie McCoy
But down home they call me Slim

Allemande left and weave
You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Jim


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Jim

Four ladies promenade a walking along
Get back home swing your man, promenade
You don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Jim


TAG

Give her a swing
Pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Jim

You Don't Mess Around With Jim
 
 

Uptown got it's hustlers
The bowery got it's bums
42nd Street got Big Jim Walker
He's a pool-shootin' son of a gun
Yeah, he big and dumb as a man can come
But he stronger than a country hoss
And when the bad folks all get together at night
You know they all call big Jim "Boss", just because
And they say

You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Jim

Well outta south Alabama come a country boy
He say I'm lookin' for a man named Jim
I am a pool-shootin' boy
By name 'a Willie McCoy
But down home they call me Slim
Yeah I'm lookin' for the king of 42nd Street
He drivin' a drop top Cadillac
Last week he took all my money
And it may sound funny
But I come to get my money back
And everybody say Jack don't you know

You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Jim

Well a hush fell over the pool room
Jimmy come boppin' in off the street
And when the cuttin' was done
The only part that wasn't bloody
Was the soles of the big man's feet, ooh
And he was cut in about a hundred places
And he was shot in a couple more
And you better believe
There come another kind of story
When big Jim hit the floor, now they say

You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Slim

Yeah, big Jim got his hat
Find out where it's at
And it's not hustlin' people strange to you
Even if you do got a two-piece custom-made pool cue

Yeah you don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Slim

Lyrics by Jim Croce.
