about

Another fun track. I wanted to try and squeeze as many poker terms into the lyrics, plus adding an imaginary Billy the kid type character into the scene. The tennantsville comes from my admiration of the musician Neil Tennant

lyrics

I was taking a walk in Tennantsville
Looking for the greatest thrill
I was taking a chance in Tennantsville
To win my money and pay my bill

Cut the pack and go deal
Ace of Spades
And Jack of Hearts
Feel the pace and get real
Raise the stake
And play the cards
Watch your life disappear
In smoke and beer
And gambled fear

In this Full House
A strong hand raised
Left me all
Flushed and Dazed
I'll give you action
Was his bluff
Before it started getting rough

Cut the pack and go deal
Ace of Spades
And Jack of Hearts
Feel the pace and get real
Raise the stake
And play the cards
Watch your life disappear
In smoke and beer
And gambled fear

Lost my cash in Tennantsville
Now a man they want to kill
Got a price upon my head
If I don't pay up
Then I'm dead

Cut the pack and go deal
Ace of Spades
And Jack of Hearts
Feel the pace and get real
Raise the stake
And play the cards
Watch your life disappear
In smoke and beer
And gambled fear
