"Jack O' Diamonds" as written by Pd Traditional and J Baird....
Jack of diamonds, jack of diamonds
I know you of old
You rob my poor pockets
Of silver and gold

Poor whiskey you reel in
You bid my mouth full
You punch me and you kick me
But I love you most of all

They say I drink whiskey
Well my money is my own
And all you who don't like me
You can leave me alone

I'll eat when I'm hungry
And I'll drink when I'm dry
And I'll do whatever I please
And I'll live until I die

And I love you more than Jesus
And I hate you more than me
A pallet for my pillow
And a blanket of leaves

No family gonna save me
Not a nickel to my name
A broke heart is my comfort
And that's the price I've made

Jack of diamonds, jack of diamonds
You're a hard card to play
You can make me but you can't break me
You're showing the ace of spades

I've gambled, gambled in England
And I've gambled in Spain
I'll bet you all my money
That I won't be back again
