Hank Snow - Lyrics


The Singing Ranger, Vol. 3 - Album




Queen Of Draw Poker Town


 
Her eyes looked at mine with a cold vacant stare

I'd still like to know what I saw in her there

She wasn't outstandin', her features were small

And personality wise she had nothing at all



But two people that night, me and God above

Knew this was the woman that I'd always love

For who can explain what goes on in your heart

That can cause a woman to tear you apart



In a swank poker club where it's legal to play

And the suckers and booze turn the night into day

There I led with my heart when the big chips were down

And I lost to the Queen of Draw Poker Town



I was soon to find out why they gave her that name

She was hooked on the cards and lived for the game

I thought she might change but it's now plain to see

The deck had been stacked and the joker was me



My bills are unpaid and the rent money's gone

The bread box is empty and our clothes are in pawn

And night after night you'll find me alone

Just walkin' the floor until she gets home



Day after day I keep tellin' myself let her go break away

Let the suckers and booze turn the night into day

But speakin' of fools you can hand me the crown

For I still love the Queen of Draw Poker Town



Now here is a woman who lives without shame

A sick mind a slave to the draw poker game

Day and night there she sits with her coveted chips

And the cigarette smoke billows out from her lips



A pitiful site from her head to her feet

I know she would rather play poker than eat

But I also know well but I can't tell you why

I'll live just for her until the day that I die



The landlord can wait I'll run I'll hide

Who cares if the bread box is empty inside

I'll stay at home alone I'll go without shoes

I've got nothin' to gain but no more to lose



Till the day she plays her last hand her last card is drawn

Till I've sold my last shirt and my last buck is gone

I'll be King ofthe Fools and I'll never sit down

For I worship the Queen of Draw Poker Town
