Carole King - Smackwater Jack



Tekst piosenki:


  
   Now, Smackwater Jack,
  He bought a shotgun
  'Cause he was in the mood
  For a little confrontation.
  He just a-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.
  
  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
  To clean up the streets
  For our wives and our daughters!"
  
  You can't talk to a man
  When he don't wanna understand.
  No, no, no, no, no.
  
  The account of the capture
  Wasn't in the papers,
  But you know, they hanged ol' 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.
  A shotgun in his hand.
  Smackwater Jack bought a shotgun.
  Yeah, Smackwater Jack bought a shotgun.
  Oh, Smackwater Jack, yeah.
  Talkin' 'bout Smackwater Jack, yeah.
  Talkin' 'bout a-Smackwater Jack, now.
  Talkin' 'bout Smack.
  Talkin' 'bout Jack.
  Smackwater Jack, yeah.
