Deuces Wild Recorded by Frankie Laine
C F Deuces wild deuces wild C G7 He came my way to play the game C F C Up and down the river looking all the while G7 C For a man who plays poker with deuces wild G7 C He's the man who plays poker with deuces wild
F C When I was just a lad before I turned bad G7 No more than the age of ten C F C I heard my poor old ma pleading with my pa G7 C Please don't go gambling again
F C Well known in New Orleans and along the river streams G7 As destinies gambling child C F C With tattoos on his arm he had a good luck charm G7 C The words were deuces wild
F Deuces wild deuces wild C G7 C He came my way to play the game G7 C He's the man who played poker with deuces wild F C Soon he disappeared and then through the years G7 My ma slowly died in shame C F C As so as I was leaving I swore that I'd get even G7 C With him who gave me my name
F C So I began to deal on the Natchez Keel G7 Who's Captain sure liked my style C F C Revenge was in my will I had to find and kill G7 C The man with deuces wild
F C G7 C Cut a card play it hard making myself a name G7 C He's the man who played poker with deuces wild F C Many years had passed and I lived them fast G7 My search set my soul on fire C F C They knew me up and down in every levy town G7 C As one with a crazy desire
F C And with my own two hands I had to break the man G7 Who gambled with such a smile C F C I would put a bullet through the man with that tattoo G7 C Who sure loved deuces wild
F C Up and down the river looking all the while G7 C For a man who plays poker with deuces wild G7 C He's the man who plays poker with deuces wild
F C One day I played a hand with tough Dixie Dan G7 Who came up from Mobile way C F C When he saw he was beaten he said that I was cheating G7 C His gun quickly pushed the cards away
F C As I heard the bullet scream an old gent stepped between G7 He looked up and smiled and died C F C And tattooed on his arm I saw a good luck charm G7 C The words were deuces wild
F Deuces wild deuces wild C G7 He came my way to play the game C F C G7 C Cut a card play it hard making myself a name F C Up and down the river looking all the while G7 C Looking for a man who plays poker with deuces wild
