You Don't Mess Around with Jim is the third studio album by American singer-songwriter Jim Croce, released in 1972.

And 42nd street got big Jim Walker. He's a pool shootin' son of a gun. Ya, he's big and dumb as a man can come. But stronger than a country hoss. And when the bad folks all get together at night. You know they all call big Jim boss. And they say, & don't on Supermans' cape. You don't spit into the wind. You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger Well out of south Alabama come a country boy. He said, & for a man named Jim. I am a pool shootin' boy, my name is Will M. .

You Don't Mess With Jim was Jim Croce's most successful album at the time of it's release, and with another album coming a year later, Croce was poised to become an absolute superstar. Sadly, weeks before the release of his 1973 album, Croce was killed in a plane crash. He left his wife, son, and an entire fanbase with both his new album, and a posthumous album later that same year.

The "Jim" in this song is not Croce. Ingrid Croce, who was married to Jim at the time of his death in 1973, told us: "Jim (Croce) sold air time for a radio station. It got solid airplay and national attention, which was followed by lots of positive press for the album. You Don't Mess Around With Jim wasn't released until nine months after it had been recorded, so Croce and his musical partner Maury Muehleisen had perfected the songs in performance. The You Don't Mess Around With Jim album was produced by Terry Cashman and Tommy West.
