lyrics

Jack of Diamonds – By Adrian Krygowski (Traditional)
I've played cards in England
I've gambled in Spain
Goin back to Carolina
Play my last game
Jack o' Diamonds, Jack o' Diamonds and I know you of old
You've robbed my poor pockets of silver and gold

It's whiskey, you villain, you've been my downfall
You've kicked me, you've cuffed me, but I love you for all
Rye whiskey, rye whiskey, rye whiskey I cry
If I don’t get rye whiskey, I think I will die

Beefsteak when I'm hungry red liquor when I'm dry
Greenbacks when I'm hard up and religion when I die
I’ll go to yonder-hollar, I’ll build me a still
Give you a gallon for a 5-dollar bill
Rye whiskey, rye whiskey, rye whiskey I cry
Tree don’t fall on me, I’ll live till I die

If the river was whiskey, and I was a duck
I'd dive to the bottom, and never come up
But the river ain't whiskey, and I ain't no duck
I'll play Jack of Diamonds and trust to my luck
Rye whiskey, rye whiskey, rye whiskey I cry
If the whiskey don’t kill me, I’ll live till I die
