The Only Game in Town

By: Jonathan Noble

Cards spread on the table, no bread,
And every head stares at its dealt hand
While the band plays some jumpy tune
And the sun shines bright at high noon

Don’t drown yourself in whiskey, boy
Cause poker’s the only game in town

Shuffle the deck and deal, this is real,
Try to steal and then heal from the shot;
Best to play straight, don’t take the bait,
So plot your best play to win the pot

Don’t drown yourself in whiskey, boy
Cause poker’s the only game in town

This table’s without a meal, only deal;
You’d better be sharp and don’t disturb
Or perturb the other players round you,
And don’t listen to any of the naysayers

Don’t drown yourself in whiskey, boy
Cause poker’s the only game in town

Play your hand well till sounds the bell
Play your hand well till sounds the bell
Till sounds the bell . . .

Don’t drown yourself in whiskey, boy
Cause poker’s the only game in town
