John Mellencamp – Simply A One-Eyed Jack Lyrics


The Gypsy King is dealing his cards

From the bottom of the deck

Hasn’t won a hand

Leastways not as yet

The table’s getting angry

Some have folded up their cards

Others keep on betting

Even though they know they’re playing a loser’s game

Looking for the one-eyed Jack

Salome is frying chicken

And the smell of grease is filling up the room

John the Baptist, well he’s left the game too soon

Salome has a frying pan in her hand

She’d like to take out the kind of man

That everyone is watching as she’s going after

The one-eyed Jack

Some people want to party

VIEW:  Asiko feat Jozi And Ice Prince - Darey lyrics

Others are trying to leave

Some are telling stories that are

That are just impossible to believe

The long day’s journey is turning in-into night

Salome looks crazy and she’s higher than a kite

No one is in favor

Of the one-eyed Jack

Money and power is the name of the game

It started out as spit in the ocean

But things have rapidly changed

It will never go back to the way it used to be

Nature deals with no one, what’s the cause

So many eyes will not see

It’s the one-eyed Jack

I’d like to go somewhere safe and

VIEW:  Tiwa Savage feat Wizkid - Bad lyrics

Watch the world as it changes

And become a folk singer

Sing a song that stops corruption and pain

But there’s no reason for that now

We’re a long way somehow

We’d better make a move or become the victim of

That lying one-eyed Jack
