Jack O' Diamonds

Pagina: ---/---

Niet meer in de codex sinds 1956
Oh Sally, oh Sally, 'tis for your sake alone
That I leave my old parents, my house and my home
That I leave my old parents, you cause me to roam
I'm an old rambling cowpoke and the range is my home

Jack O' diamonds, Jack O' diamonds, I know you of old
You've robbed by poor pockets of silver and gold
Oh, whiskey, you villain, you've been my downfall
You've punched me and kicked me, but I love you for all

My foot's in my stirrup, my bridle's in my hand
I'm going to leave Sally, the fairest in the land
Her Daddy don't like me, he says I'm too poor
He says I'm unworthy to enter her door
