[Verse 1]
I remember it well, was a hot rainy night
When that stranger rode into town
And tied up his horse at the rainbow café
And bought everybody a round
"Hey bartender, break open a new deck of cards!"
"Let's have some good honest fun."
"Now a sociable game for a dollar or two-"
"That never hurt anyone!" [Chorus]
Now put your money right down on the table boys
The name of the game?
Five Card Stud
Now, deal slow and easy from the top, son
The name of the game?
Five Card Stud[Verse 2]
That poker game lasted all through the night
It lasted through the next day
But one by one, they had to drop out
When they had no more money to play
That night, there was only the stranger
And a cowboy, a young friend of mine
They shuffled the cards in the crowd since the end
As they put all their chips on the line
[Chorus]
Now put your money right down on the table boys
The name of the game?
Five Card Stud
Now, deal slow and easy from the top, son
The name of the game?
Five Card Stud[Verse 3]
After four cards were dealt to the young cowboy's hand
Two kings, everybody could see
But the stranger's hand, looking better than his
Showed an ace, and an ace, and a three
The last card was dealt to the young cowboy's hand
And when he turned up a third king
Why that stranger just smiled and turned in his cards
And he left without saying a thing[Verse 4]
Well after he'd gone, they turned over his cards
And surprise showed on everyone's face
Oh they'll never know why he got up to go
When his card in the hole was an ace
Now in poker all the rules say that aces beat kings
So in truth, the stranger had won
But out of the crowd, just the two of us knew
That the stranger was playing his son
[Chorus]
Now put your money right down on the table boys
The name of the game?
Five Card Stud
Five Card Stud
Five Card Stud
