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
