/ D chordD
The / festival was over and
/ G chordG / D chordD
The / boys were all plannin' for a / fall
/ D chordD
The / cabaret was quiet
/ G chordG / D chordD
Ex - / cept for the drillin' in the / wall
/ G chordG - D chordD
The / curfew had been lifted and
/ A chordA - D chordD
The / gamblin' wheel shut down
G chordG - D chordD
Anyone with any sense
/ A chordA - A chordA
Had / a - ready left town
/ D chordD
He was / standin' in the doorway
G chordG - A chordA / D chordD / /
Lookin' like the Jack of Hear - / arts / /

He / moved across the mirrored room
Set em up for everyone he / said
Then / everyone commenced to do
What / they'd been doin'
Be - fore he moved their / heads
Then he / walked up to a stranger and
He / asked him with a grin
Could you / kindly tell me mister
What / time the show be - gins
He / moved into the corner
Face down like the Jack of Hear - / arts

Back - stage the girls were playin'
Five-card stud by the / stairs
Lily had two queens
She was / hopin' for a third
To match her / pair
Out - / side the streets were fillin' up and
A chordA / window was open wide
A chordA / gentle breeze was blowin'
You could / feel it from in - side
Lily called a - nother bet and
Drew up the Jack of Hear - / arts

Big Jim was no one's fool
He owned the town's only diamond / mine
He / made his usual entrance
Lookin' all so dandy and so / fine
With his / bodyguards and silver cane and
Every hair in place
He / took whatever he wanted to and
He / laid it all to waste
But his / bodyguards and his silver cane
They were / no match for the Jack of Hear - / arts

Rose - / mary co - ombed her hair and
Took the carriage into / town
She / slipped into the side door
Lookin' like a queen without a / crown
She / fluttered her false eyelashes and
Whispered in his ear
I'm / sorry darlin' that I'm late
But he / didn't seem to hear
He was / starin' into space
Over at the Jack of Hear - / arts

Well I / know I've seen that face somewhere
Big Jim was thinkin' to him - / self
Maybe down in Mexico or
A chordA / picture up - on some - body's / shelf
But then the / crowd began to stamp their feet and
The / house lights did dim and
In the darkness of the room
There was / only Jim and him
Starin' at the butterfly
Who / just up drew up the Jack of Hear - / arts

Lily was a princess
She was / fair-skinned and precious as a / child
She / had that certain something
Was a kind of a flash
Every time she / smiled
She'd / come away from a broken home
Had / lots of strange af - fairs
With / men in every walk of life
Who / took her every - where
But she'd / never met any - one
Quite like the Jack of Hear - / arts

The / hangin' judge came in un - / noticed and
Was being wined and / dined
The / drillin' in the wall kept up
But / no one seemed to pay it any / mind
It was / known all a - round
That / Lily had Jim's ring and
Nothing would ever come
Between / Lily and the king
No / nothin' ever could
Ex - / cept maybe the Jack of Hear - / arts

Rosemary started drinkin' hard and
Seein' her re - flection in the / knife
She was / tired of the at - tention
Tired of playin' the role of Big Jim's / wife
She had / done a lot of bad things
Even / once tried sui - cide
Was / lookin' to do just one good / deed
Before she died
She was / gazin' to the future
Riding on the Jack of Hear - / arts

Lily took her dress off
Buried it a - / way
Has your / luck run out she laughed at him
I / guess you must have known it would some - / day
Be / careful not to touch the wall
There's a / brand-new coat of paint
I'm / glad to see you're still alive and
You're / lookin' like a saint
Down the hallway footsteps
Were / comin' for the Jack of Hear - / arts

The / Backstage manager was / pacin'
All a - round by his / chair
There's / somethin' funny going on
I / know I can just feel it in the / air
He / went to get the hangin' judge
But the / hangin' judge was drunk and
The / leading actor hurried by
In the / costume of a monk
But there was no / actor any - where
Better than the Jack of Hear - / arts

Lili had her arms a - round the / man
She dearly loved to / touch
She for - / got all a - bout the man
She / hated who hounded her so / much
I / missed you so she said to him and
He / thought she was sincere
But / in the hallway he fou - ound
Jealousy and fear
Just another night in the / life of the Jack of Hear - / arts

No one knew the circumstance
But / they say that it happened pretty / quick
The / door to the dressing room burst / open and
A chordA cold revolver / clicked and
Big Jim was standin' there
You / couldn't say sur - prised
Rose - / mary right be - side him
Steady in her eyes
She was / with Big Jim
But she was / leanin' to the Jack of Hear - / arts

Two doors down and the / boys
Finally made it through the / wall and
They / cleaned out the bank safe
Said they got off with quite a / haul and
In the / darkness of the riverbed
They / waited on the ground
For / one more member
Who had / business back in town
But they / couldn't go no further
With - out the Jack of Hear - / arts

Well the / next day was hangin' day
The / sky was overcast and / black
Big Jim lay covered up
Killed by a penknife in the / back and
Rose - / mary on the gallows
Lord she / didn't even blink
The / hangin' judge was sober
Lord he / hadn't had a drink and
The / only person on the scene
Missing was the Jack of Hear - / arts

Well the / cabaret was quiet now and
A chordA / sign said Closed for re - / pair
Lily had already taken / all of the dye
Out of her / hair
She was / thinkin' about her father
Who she / very rarely saw
Thinkin' about Rosemary and
Thinkin' about the law
But / most of a - all she was / thinkin'
About the Jack of Hear - / arts
