Spanish Jack Lyrics

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 tattoed 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 the 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 would 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 shots 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 to 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 can never win
If Spanish Jack is at the table.
