Jack O' Diamonds

This song is by Mance Lipscomb and appears on the compilation album Texas Sharecropper & Songster (1960).

Well I played him end of spring
And he never won a thing
Jack of Diamonds was a hard card to play

Well I played him end of fall
And he never won at all
Jack of Diamonds was a hard card to play

I fell down on my knees
Tried to play Jack of Spades
Jack of Diamonds was a hard card to play

Well I played him 'gainst the ace
He was a starvation in my face
Jack of Diamonds was a hard card to play

Well I played him 'gainst the deuce
Pulled a jack when it weren't no use
Jack of Diamonds was a hard card to play

Well I played him 'gainst the tre
It was on ??it a fiver lay?
Jack of Diamonds was a hard card to play

And I played the jack 'gainst the four
Turned the jack's red indigo
Jack of Diamonds was a hard card to play

I played him 'gainst the five
That Abe Lincoln made me cry
Jack of Diamonds was a hard card to play

And I played him 'gainst the six
It left me in a terrible fix
Jack of Diamonds was a hard card to play

And I told you last week
Just as plain as a man could speak
I'm gonna send you to your proper pay day

And I played the jack 'gainst the king
And it made the deal sing
Jack of diamonds was a hard card to play

And I played it 'gainst the queen
And it turned my money green
Jack of diamonds was a hard card to play
