​Jack of Diamonds Georgia Rub

This song is by Henry Townsend and appears on the album Mule's Blues (2015).

Jack of Diamonds said to the Queen of Spades
Jack of Diamonds, tell me of those creepin' ways
'Cause my mama do not allow me, stay out all night long
'Cause she knows I'm a boy-child, women gonna do me wrong

Jack of Diamonds ain't no friend to me
Jack of Diamonds got the low-down heart disease
I said, my mama don't allow me, stay out all night long
'Cause she knows I'm a boy-child, women gonna do me wrong

Come on, mama, I said, stop your ways
You don't expect me to be your low-down slave
Hollerin', mama, mama, mama, I can't be your slave
Now I'm tired of sleepin' in this low-down and dirty place

Jack of Diamonds is lean and mean
Gave me a deck and stayed long a-hind the queen
Oh, baby, baby, babe, what more can I do?
I've done all and whatever I could, can't get along with you

Jack of Diamonds come to town
Taken my woman then dogged me around
Ow, baby, baby, baby, what more can I do?
Now I'm lookin' for a baby girl and I'm through with you

Jack of Diamonds took my last old dime
I'm gettin' tired of you doggin' me around
I said it's baby, baby, baby, what more can I do?
I'm gettin' tired of bein' worried, Jack of Diamonds, with you

Jack of Diamonds made me cry
Take my baby on the sly
I said, mama, mama, mama, Jack of Diamonds made me cry
Well, he taken my sweet woman, taken her on the sly
