Good mornin' skin game, hollerin' skin game please last
Good mornin' skin game, hollerin' skin game please last
I done staked my man to win and I hope my money will pass
He's done pawned my house, he got my life at stake
He's done pawned my house, got my life at stake
And I've got to get it back with that money he gamble and make
He never lost no money until he drawed that black Queen of Spades
Oh, lost his money on that black Queen of Spades
And my man was need-now beggin', he was in hard luck that very day
When he come back to me, got a dollar or two
Come back to me, got a dollar or two
I want him to go back to that skin game and see what he can do
If my man, he could only win my money back
If my man could only win my money back
I would take a walk downtown, buy me a brand new pair of shoes and hat
