jack o’diamonds lyrics – fairport convention

jack o’diamonds, one-eyed knave
on the move, hits the street
bumps his head, on the ground
well, he’s a scout, you’re born to lose
shouldn’t stay
jack o’diamonds is a hard card to play

jack o’diamonds, yeah jack o’diamonds
this one-eyed prince, wears a single love
oh sure, he’s not that lovely
jack o’diamonds broke my hand
left me here to stand
jack o’diamonds is a hard card to land

jack o’diamonds is a hard card
jack o’diamonds is a high card
jack o’diamonds is a hard card
but it ain’t hard enough

jack o’diamonds can open for riches
jack o’diamonds but then it switches
color by picture but it’s only a ten
jack o’diamonds, yeah jack o’diamonds
jack o’diamonds is a hard card to play

jack o’diamonds, yeah jack o’diamonds
this one-eyed prince, wears a single love
oh sure, he’s not that lovely
jack o’diamonds broke my hand
left me here to stand
jack o’diamonds is a hard card to play

jack o’diamonds is a hard card
jack o’diamonds is a high card
jack o’diamonds is a hard card
but it ain’t hard enough

jack o’diamonds can open for riches
jack o’diamonds but then it switches
color by picture but it’s only a ten
jack o’diamonds
