The Pool Shark
Recorded by Dave Dudley
Written by Tom T. Hall

G C
He said pardon me for bein' so bold
G
But you got a cigarette that's already rolled
C G
I gave him one he lit it in his own good time
C
The smoke in that poolroom hung like fog
G
When he talked he sounded like a growling dog
C G
He said would you care for a dollar on the five or nine

C
Now the man was ugly and his eyes were mean
G
His clothes were dirty but his hands were clean
C G
He held that stick like a mother holds the hand of her child
C
Well I've been known to hustle a few
G
When the waitress said was he playing you
C G
And I said yeah bring me brandy water by it

C
Little Red Parker he was way in the back
G
Taking quarters and handling racks
C G
And I told him Red come up here glue 'em up tight
C G
That brandy had me feeling warm so I tipped that waitress

And I checked her form
C G
And I said honey you like a winner and she just smiled

C G
I played like a man with a broken wrist I won two and he won six
C G
And I had him set up so I said let's play for five
C
By this time the crowd had gathered round
G
Just to see this fish and just watch him drown
C G
I told that waitress more brandy water by it

C
Well he went out and gotta custom cue
G
And he said it's no offense to you
C G
But I don't play off the wall with nobody but friends
C G
It had a gold initials in a leather grip pearly and silver inlaid tip
C G
He smiled at me and he said why don’t we play for ten

C G
Well I’ve never seen a man that walked who made those balls and table talk
C G
They're speaking English he sure didn't need my help
C
He broke the balls and kept that string
G
For a hundred and eighty seven bucks and a ring
C G
Till I gave up and said friend you're gonna have to play by yourself

C
Well he sacked it up and he walked outside
G
And I strolled out just to watch him ride
C G
And there’s a blonde in their caddy built like the rest of that car
C
The boys in the poolroom they had 'em a laugh
G
And I hung it up and let it pass
C G
Didn’t have a thing but my elbows to put on the bar

C
And the waitress smiled said water by it
G
I took the charity and thanked her polite
C G
And sittin' there sippin' and suddenly I had me a thought
C
Unlucky gambler and lucky in love
G
I guess you know what I was thinking of
C G
I said waitress honey what time you get off
