He gambled and he'd deal
Every game in every state
And the deck was loaded more than once
But he always played it straight

Middle sized John
Middle sized John
He was the king of cards
The king of cards
The king of cards
He was the king of cards

And when he threw the dice
He never used a trick
And if he needed a pair
He'd throw a slick double six

Middle sized John
Middle sized John
He was a gamblin man
A gamblin man
A gamblin man
He was a gamblin man

Old Diamond Jim
He marked the cards with liquor
But John was no cheat
He just used his lucky streak

Middle sized John
Middle sized John
He was an honest man
An honest man
An honest man
He was an honest man

John killed Jim in cold blood
With his best girl on his lap
She just had to be called Lucille
With a body like that
That was his big deal

Middle sized John
Middle sized John
Middle sized John
He was sworn to fun
He was sworn to have some fun

Middle sized John
Middle sized John
Middle sized John
He was the king of cards
The king of cards
The king of cards
He was the king of cards
