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. 

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 counting Bill's money lord, headed for LA 


Waitin' just a little farther down the road somewhere

This is a great Dicky Betts tune from the Allman Brothers Band ... off of the “Win, Lose or Draw” album ... it’s somewhat obscure ... 

Legend has it ...the “Texas Billy” the song refers to is “Billy Gibbons” from “ZZ Top” .... and that this tune is loosely based on a somewhat, at least partially true story ...??? .... 

I saw them perform this at the L.A. Forum when the album first came out in the 1970s ... it kicked major ass !!! ... Elvin Bishop opened up the show for them on that date ...

This is Dr.Ducks version ... enjoy ... and keep on rockin’ ... 
So ... Who is Dr.Duck ??? ... to say hi to Dr.Duck ...  go to ...
