Skin Game Blues - Peg Leg Howell
in Vestapol tuning

When I came to Georgia
Money and clothes I had, babe,
All the money I had done gone, my
Sunday clothes in pawn.

Sunday clothes in pawn
Sunday clothes in pawn, lovin' babe, my
Sunday clothes in pawn

Says you better let a deal go down
Skin game's comin' to a close, and
You better let the deal go down.

Spoken: Hold the cards! A dollar more! Two more halves!

A dollar more the deuce beat a nine
A dollar more the deuce beat a nine, lovin' babe,
A dollar more the deuce beat a nine

Went out to the skin game last night
Thought I'd have some fun
Lost all the money that I had made
Had to pawn my special gun

Had to pawn my special gun
Had to pawn my special gun, lovin' babe,
Had to pawn my special gun

Says you better let a deal go down
Skin game's comin' to a close, and
You better let the deal go down

Says gambled all over Missouri
Gambled all through Spain, babe,
Police come to arrest me, babe,
And they did not know my name

And they did not know my name
And they did not know my name, lovin' babe,
And they did not know my name

Better let a deal go down
Skin game's comin' to a close, and
You better let your deal go down

Spoken: Hold the cards! A dollar more the deuce beat a nine! Half more two! Put up over there, nigger!

Better let the deal go down
Says you better let the deal go down

Gambled all over Missouri
Gambled through Tennessee, babe,
Soon as I reached old Georgia
The niggers carried a handcuff to me

The niggers carried a handcuff to me, babe,
The niggers carried a handcuff to me, lovin' babe,
And the niggers carried a handcuff to me

Better let a deal go down
Skin game's comin' to a close
And you better let the deal go down.
