Chords
Transpose:
        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 B7King Jesse in the house
Em B7Raise your glasses
Em B7Get your wallets out your pockets
Em B7All hail King
KING JESSE
Em B7Jack Daniels and Jimmy Bean
Em B7These are a few of my favorite things
Em B7It's good to be the king
Em B7It's so good to be the king
Em B7Pockets fat, women thin
Em B7Hot stakes and I'm bound to win
E B7 It's good
Em B7Oh it's so good to be the king
Em B7 Allow me by way of introduction
Em B7To say a little something bout these streets I grew up in
Em B7Hustlin, trying to scrape a dollar out of nothing
Em B7Take a little faith and make it substance
Em B7You see where I come from you can live forever on your knees
Em B7Begging alms, paying homages another man decrees
Em B7Or, well you can give the people what they need
Em B7Just enough to let em make believe they're free
Em B7So I wear a heart on my sleeve, keep a spade in my cuff
Em B7Let him without a shadow call my bluff
Em B7I was born an urchin told I wasn't worth the weight of my dirt
Em B7Now a king, crab-sidestepped the curse of my birth
Em B7Tell em, Jesse in the house, throw your dice on the table
Em B7Watch a leopard change its spots, lies become fables
Em B7Whatever it takes for these ladies in lace
Em B7To come walkin my way and they do, yeah they do so
Em B7 White powder and stacks of green
Em B7These are a few of my favorite things
Em B7It's good to be the king
Em B7Oh it's so good to be the king
Em B7Hot dice, loaded decks
Em B7[Texin?] the checks of my loyal subjects
Em B7It's good, yes it's good
Em B7Oh it's so good to be the king
BIG JOE
EmWord had spread far and wide about King Jesse's success
EmAnd every young turk who'd ever felt the draw of a dark room on a hot summer night
EmTried his hand at toppling the King
STACK King Jesse, you rollin' tonight? KING JESSE Well who's asking, young man? STACk
EmWell I guess you probably heard of me
G AmHi I'm Stack o Lee, no lyin'
B7Same roustabout that took out Billy Lines
Em GJust for tryin to pull an ace I wasted him
Am B7My aim was nice, but you should see what I do with my dice
Em GI heard that you're the king fish, I brought my hook and bait along
Am B7Roll the bones, great, place your bets on the heart eight
Em GHere comes the heartache, Jesse, I come for crown and scepter
Am B7I come for kin and kingdom so you and your big protector
Em G AmBetter recognize I'm better than the average guys who darken up your door
B7Six foot two and I pack a forty four
Em GNo funny stuff, get me, we'll do this on the level Joe
Am B7Didn't come to start rumors I only came to settle em
Em GIf you're half as decent as your rep that so precedes you
Am B7You may put up a fight but it is I who will unseat you
Em GNight night king, I demote you to a naive
Am B7I'm the best that ever rolled em and these skeletons are my slaves
EmHow high? High as you like
Well let's go Big Joe! CHORUS
Em G Am B7Big Joe pulled a big number what number did Joe pull?
Em G Am B7Big Joe pulled a big number what number did Joe pull?
KING JESSE
Em B7Easy cash stacks from [cocky beans?]
Em B7 These are a few of my favorite things
Em B7It's good to be the king
Em B7Oh it's so good to be the king
Em B7My crowd shoutin as they tend to do
Em B7And watching the look on your face when you lose
Em B7It's good
Em B7Oh it's so good to be the king
STACK
Em B7I'm Stack o, you're stacks look low you need a loan?
Em B7A little boost to your cash flow? I'm happy to oblige
Em B7Or maybe you need a back rub, you know how to scrap with lion cubs
Em B7But now you're rolling higher, the king of the pride
Em G Down Simba, I call this one the rope-a-dope
AmThe hustler [?]
B7The Caesar in the senate [on the eyes?]
Em GAnd I'm surprised you pitted my position
AmCus the word around your kingdom is
B7You love coming from behind
Ooooohh Yeah, I said it KING JESSE
Em B7Fine I'm a little Roman in my sentiments
Em B7But you? You're a peon in the presence of his imminence your impotence
Em GAnd I forgive this incident your impudence
AmYour judgement blurred
B7Correct it, kiss the ring and have the last word
STACK
Em GI might be down but I still swing a bigger better when there's pressure
Am B7[fadfjadlf?] kind of precious treasure
Em GLast two rolls were pocket change, I'm hungry for some real cake
AmWhat do you say your honor
B7One more, for some real stakes?
