Jonny Lang - Rack 'Em Up

I used to hang out at Jack's Pool Hall

you go down there and don't do nothin' at all

if you wanted to play some cards there was a game in the back

if you wanted to shot or somethin' you went and talked to Jack

if you had a little money you was a grade A fool

there was a guy down there who used to shoot a little pool

Rack 'em up

till the day he was dead that all they ever said

Rack 'em up

He didn't own a TV set, didn't own a car

he ate what whatever Jack was makin' back behind the bar

they said he had a wife, but she left him in tears

he hadn't been home once in twenty five years

Rack 'em up

They came from all over thinkin' they were pretty hot

put all their money on the table, wanna play the best we got

nine in the corner, five in the side

take a hundred dollar bill and just let it ride

I tell him listen son, ain't no disaster

there ain't no shame in being beat by a master

Rack 'em up

til the day he was gone they said it all day long

Rack 'em up
