Thread Name: Origin: Limber Jim
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Limber Jim: History & Lyrics
Turtle Old Man, I looked at Google as well, and was surprised at how common the nickname "Limber Jim" was.
I tend to regard it as a different way of referring to Buckeye Jim who could "weave and spin" a la minstrel dancers, but that doesn't rule out other possibilities.
