James Cecil Dickens, més conegut com a Little Jimmy Dickens (Bolt, Virgínia Occidental, 19 de desembre de 1920Nashville, Tennessee, 2 de gener de 2015),[1] va ser un cantant de country nord-americà. Es va fer conegut pel bon humor de les lletres de les seves cançons, la seva petita alçada (150 cm), i el seu vestuari adornat amb esborradores. Va ser membre del Grand Ole Opry durant 60 anys, així com del Country Music Hall of Fame.

El seu estil[modifica]

Formen part de les seves cançons grans frases com:[2]

  • “Lord, have mercy, John. There goes Mighty Mouse in his pajamas!”
  • “I cannot do both.”
  • “Daddy’s name was Ferdinand, Mommy’s name was Lizer, so they named him Fertilizer.”
  • “Shake hands, old man, I married your sister!”
  • “You’d better run, idiot, we’re brothers!”
  • “Rose! What’s the name of that medicine I’m takin’?!”
  • “No, but if you’ll go up to the front desk and ask the nurse she’ll tell you who you are.”
  • “That all depends. The lady that lives here lets me sleep with her.”
  • “Get it over with, Shorty. I’m the janitor and I’d like to go home.”
  • “Now I know what I did with my hearing aid!”
