Spanish Jack - lyrics

playlist Playlist
Spanish Jack had a Cadillac
That he always parked around the corner
He wore his hat tipped to the side
Like a pimp on Easter morning
I was on the street that Saturday night
When they all claim they saw him
In his cowboy shoes and shantung suit
And the night was young in August
His lady's name was Sunny Day
She had Jack tattooed on her shoulder
Jack played cards with Gentleman Jim
And Sunny did everything Jack told her
Gentleman Jim won Jack's watch
And chain in a badly dealt game of poker
Then Sunny Day kind of moved away
As the last hand hit the table
Jack he had a pair of nines
And Gentleman showed three aces
You took my watch and chain
And now my gold tipped cane
Put both your hands up on the table
We can settle this thing in a gentleman's way
Let's just step outside the doorway
The night was warm and they looked at the stars
But only one will see the morning
There's nothing lower than a cheat at cards
Especially at poker
Before the Gentleman he could cheat again
The Spaniard pulled out his revolver
Spanish Jack shot Gentleman dead
And the shouts sounded loud as thunder
And when the smoke it cleared
Gentleman Jim lay dead
This was his last game of poker
Jack filled Jim with so much lead
It took six men too move him over
So full of lead and oozing red
They stole the boots right off his body
If you're gonna play a game of cards
Be sure with who you're gambling
This game of chance you could never win
If Spanish Jack is at the table
