Carole King - Smackwater Jack

rate me

Now Smackwater Jack, he bought a shotgun

'Cause he was in the mood for a little confrontation

He just let it all hang loose

He didn't think about the noose

He couldn't take no more abuse

So he shot down the congregation

You can't talk to a man

With a shotgun in his hand

Shotgun

Now Big Jim the chief stood for law and order

He called for the guard to come and surround the border

Now from his bulldog mouth

As he led the posse south

Came the cry, we got to ride

Clean up the streets for our wives and our daughters

You can't talk to a man

When he don't want to understand

No, no, no, no, no, no

The account of the capture wasn't in the papers

But you know, they hanged ole Smack right then instead of later

You know the people were quite pleased

'Cause the outlaw had been seized

And on the whole, it was a very good year

For the undertaker

You know, you know, you can't talk to a man

With a shotgun in his hand

Shotgun in his hand

Smackwater Jack, yeah

Smackwater Jack bought a shotgun

Yeah, Smackwater Jack bought a shotgun

Smackwater Jack, yeah

Smackwater Jack, yeah

Talkin' about Smackwater Jack, yeah

Talkin' about Smackwater Jack, oh

Talkin' about Jack and his shotgun,

Talkin' about Smack, talkin' about Jack

Smackwater Jack, yeah
