FIVE CARD STUD (Wally Gold) Merle Kilgore - 1964 Lorne Greene - 1965 Two years ago on a hot rainy night A visitor rode into town He tied up his horse at the Rainbow Café And he bought ev'rybody a round Hey, bartender, break open a new deck of cards Let's have some good honest fun A sociable little game for a dollar or two Never did hurt anyone A-put your money right down on the table, boys The name of the game, Five Card Stud And deal slow and easy from the top, son The name of the game, Five Card Stud The poker game lasted all through the night Right on into the day And one-by-one they had to drop out For they had no more money to play Now, all that were left were the visitor And a man who was dressed mighty fine He shuffled the cards and the crowd sensed the end As they put all their chips on the line A-put your money right down on the table, boys The name of the game, Five Card Stud When four cards were dealt to the gentleman's hand Two kings ev'rybody could see But the visitor's hand, looking better than his Showed an ace, an ace and a three The fifth card was dealt to the gentleman's hand He smiled as he turned up a king The visitor folded all of his cards He left without saying a thing Put your money right down on the table, boys The name of the game, Five Card Stud After he'd gone they turned over his cards And surprise showed on ev'ryone's face They'll never know why he got up to go When the card in the hole was an ace Now, in poker the rules say that aces beat kings So in truth the stranger had won But out of the crowd just the two of us knew The stranger was playing his son Put your money right down on the table, boys The name of the game, Five Card Stud A-deal slow and easy from the top, son The name of the game, Five Card Stud Five Card Stud Five Card Stud Five........FADE (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2011)
