Jack o' Diamonds
So I'll play Jack o' diamonds
And then we'll get drunk.
O Baby, O Baby, I've told you before, Do make me a pallet, I'll lie on the floor.
I've rambled and trambled this wide world around, But it's for the rabble army, dear Mollie, I'm bound, It is to the rabble army, dear Mollie, I roam, I am a rabble soldier and Dixie is my home.
I have rambled and gambled all my money away, But it's with the rabble army, O Mollie, I must stay, It is with the rabble army, O Mollie I must roam, I am a rabble soldier and Dixie is my home.
Jack o' diamonds, Jack o' diamonds,
I know you of old,
You've robbed my poor pockets
Of silver and gold.
Rye whiskey, rye whiskey,
Rye whiskey I cry,
If you don't give me rye whiskey
I'll lie down and die.
O Baby, O Baby, I've told you before, Do make me a pallet, I'll lie on the floor.
