    My OpinionThe word darlin' can't be right, first it makes no sense, not that that matters it's a lyric, but calling shots a little high, is a simple pool reference. High stakes. Then the lyric says says your friends thought that was SO cool. Then the word 'at' the eight ball, sounds right as a pool reference, but clearly he says 'shot 'em the 8 ball baby. I have heard this live and in recordings and he is clearly not saying 'at' he is say 'um' shot'um. This Dirty Pool is not typical man woman cheating, it is a drug reference. An eight ball is cocaine and heroin combined. This adds up. The dirty pool player has cheated the friends into taking heroin by mixing them. Girl is also slang for cocaine, (boy heroin) so referring to her about shooting and dirty....well you see what it is. Poor man got clean just in time to be in a helicopter crash. LIAB.
