        KING JESSE

Kicked in the door threw the money on the floor

Now all I see is suckers saluting in slow mo, go


        BIG JOE


     Em                B7
King Jesse in the house

           Em     B7
Raise your glasses

         Em               B7
Get your wallets out your pockets

         Em   B7
All hail King



        KING JESSE


Em              B7
Jack Daniels and Jimmy Bean

Em                    B7
These are a few of my favorite things

     Em             B7
It's good to be the king

        Em             B7
It's so good to be the king

Em           B7
Pockets fat, women thin

Em                 B7
Hot stakes and I'm bound to win

E          B7 
It's good

           Em            B7
Oh it's so good to be the king


Em          B7                     
Allow me by way of introduction 

Em                                   B7
To say a little something bout these streets I grew up in

Em                          B7
Hustlin, trying to scrape a dollar out of nothing

Em                              B7
Take a little faith and make it substance

                Em                     B7
You see where I come from you can live forever on your knees

        Em                           B7
Begging alms, paying homages another man decrees

    Em                    B7
Or, well you can give the people what they need

     Em                            B7
Just enough to let em make believe they're free

            Em                         B7
So I wear a heart on my sleeve, keep a spade in my cuff

    Em                         B7
Let him without a shadow call my bluff

              Em                             B7
I was born an urchin told I wasn't worth the weight of my dirt

      Em                         B7
Now a king, crab-sidestepped the curse of my birth

         Em                             B7
Tell em, Jesse in the house, throw your dice on the table

        Em                        B7
Watch a leopard change its spots, lies become fables

Em                          B7
Whatever it takes for these ladies in lace 

        Em                B7
To come walkin my way and they do, yeah they do so

Em              B7     
White powder and stacks of green

Em                    B7
These are a few of my favorite things

     Em             B7
It's good to be the king 

           Em            B7
Oh it's so good to be the king

Em        B7
Hot dice, loaded decks

Em                        B7
[Texin?] the checks of my loyal subjects

     Em             B7
It's good, yes it's good

           Em            B7
Oh it's so good to be the king


        BIG JOE

Em
Word had spread far and wide about King Jesse's success

Em
And every young turk who'd ever felt the draw of a dark room on a hot summer night

                               Em
Tried his hand at toppling the King

        
        STACK

King Jesse, you rollin' tonight?


        KING JESSE

Well who's asking, young man?


        STACk
       
       Em
Well I guess you probably heard of me

G                      Am
Hi I'm Stack o Lee, no lyin'

                     B7
Same roustabout that took out Billy Lines

Em                              G
Just for tryin to pull an ace I wasted him

           Am                   B7
My aim was nice, but you should see what I do with my dice

Em                                   G
I heard that you're the king fish, I brought my hook and bait along

Am                                B7
Roll the bones, great, place your bets on the heart eight

Em                                 G
Here comes the heartache, Jesse, I come for crown and scepter

  Am                          B7
I come for kin and kingdom so you and your big protector

       Em                            G                                Am
Better recognize I'm better than the average guys who darken up your door
         
         B7
Six foot two and I pack a forty four

   Em                         G
No funny stuff, get me, we'll do this on the level Joe

Am                             B7
Didn't come to start rumors I only came to settle em

Em                               G
If you're half as decent as your rep that so precedes you

Am                               B7
You may put up a fight but it is I who will unseat you

Em                  G
Night night king, I demote you to a naive

        Am                                 B7
I'm the best that ever rolled em and these skeletons are my slaves


Em
How high? High as you like

Well let's go

Big Joe!



        CHORUS

Em               G          Am                  B7
Big Joe pulled a big number what number did Joe pull?

Em               G          Am                  B7
Big Joe pulled a big number what number did Joe pull?



        KING JESSE


Em                     B7
Easy cash stacks from [cocky beans?]

Em                    B7     
These are a few of my favorite things

Em                  B7
It's good to be the king

Em                        B7
Oh it's so good to be the king

   Em                    B7
My crowd shoutin as they tend to do

    Em                        B7
And watching the look on your face when you lose

Em         B7
It's good

           Em             B7
Oh it's so good to be the king


        STACK
 
    Em                         B7
I'm Stack o, you're stacks look low you need a loan?

         Em                           B7
A little boost to your cash flow? I'm happy to oblige

   Em                             B7
Or maybe you need a back rub, you know how to scrap with lion cubs

    Em                             B7
But now you're rolling higher, the king of the pride

     Em                         G

Down Simba, I call this one the rope-a-dope
    Am
The hustler [?]

                  B7
The Caesar in the senate [on the eyes?]

           Em                   G
And I'm surprised you pitted my position

                         Am
Cus the word around your kingdom is
         
         B7
You love coming from behind


        Ooooohh

Yeah, I said it


        KING JESSE

Em                            B7
Fine I'm a little Roman in my sentiments 

                  Em                          B7
But you? You're a peon in the presence of his imminence your impotence

    Em                           G
And I forgive this incident your impudence

               Am
Your judgement blurred

                     B7
Correct it, kiss the ring and have the last word


        STACK

           Em                              G
I might be down but I still swing a bigger better when there's pressure

Am           B7
[fadfjadlf?] kind of precious treasure

Em                                     G
Last two rolls were pocket change, I'm hungry for some real cake

Am
What do you say your honor

    B7
One more, for some real stakes?
