Louisiana Lou and Three Card Monty John
Oh Lord, what a natural pair
Looking for a game, fortune and fame
Waitin' just a little farther down the road somewhere

Now Three Card Monty is a gamblin' game
Two black aces and a pretty red queen
Keep your eye on the lady and lay your money down
Watch the fastest hand you've ever seen

Texas Hustlin' Billy, Lord he's on the road again
He was seen in New Orleans the other day
Now Lou is known as quite a man with a pool cue in his hand
Won't be long 'til him and John were headed down that way

Louisiana Lou and Three Card Monty John
Oh Lord, what a natural pair
Looking for a game, fortune and fame
Waitin' just a little farther down the road somewhere

It was Friday night, Lord, the time was right
Texas Billy finally made his play
The game went on into the night and just about dawn
They were countin' Bill's money, Lord, headed for LA

Louisiana Lou and Three Card Monty John
Oh Lord, what a natural pair
Looking for a game, fortune and fame
Waitin' just a little farther down the road somewhere
Waitin' just a little farther down the road somewhere
