JAMES (HOLD THE LADDER STEADY) (Words and Music by John D. Loudermilk) Sue Thompson - 1962 James, James hold the ladder steady James, James I'm packed tonight I'm ready James, James hold the ladder steady I'm a'comin' down to your ar-ar-ar-rms I'm a'comin' down to your arms. Now James and I we went to mama and showed her my diamond ring She said "my poor little baby, you must be crazy, to think of such a thing" So James, James hold the ladder steady James, James I'm packed tonight I'm ready James, James hold the ladder steady I'm a'comin' down to your ar-ar-ar-rms I'm a'comin' down to your arms. Now James and I we went to daddy and said that we want to be wed Daddy said "nope, you'll just have to elope" and laughed as he went to bed But James, James hold the ladder steady James, James I'm packed tonight I'm ready James, James hold the ladder steady I'm a'comin' down to your ar-ar-ar-rms I'm a'comin' down to your arms. I'd hate to see `em in the morning when they both completely flip He'll be sayin' "they cain't", she'll be feeling faint And I'll be kissing my husband`s lips So James, James hold the ladder steady James, James I'm packed tonight I'm ready James, James hold the ladder steady I'm a'comin' down to your ar-ar-ar-rms I'm a'comin' down to your arms. FADE James, James hold the ladder steady James, James I'm packed tonight I'm ready James, James hold the ladder steady
