[Intro]
F  Gb  G

[Chorus]
C                G
Louisiana Lou and Three Card Monty John
D                      G
Oh lord, what a natural pair
C                  G           Em
Looking for a game, fortune and fame
D                            C        Bb     G
Waitin' just a little farther down the road somewhere

[Verse 1]
   G                     C
Now Three Card Monty is a gamblin' game
G                   D
Two black aces and a pretty red queen
C                            G              Em
Keep your eye on the lady and lay your money down
D                                 C  G
Watch the fastest hand you've ever seen

[Instrumental]
C  G  D  G

[Verse 2]
                               C
Texas Hustlin' Billy, lord he's on the road again
      G                             D
He was seen in New Orleans the other day
   C                                  G               Em
Now Lou is known as quite a man with a pool cue in his hand
D                                   C                G
Won't be long 'til him and John were headed down that way

[Chorus]
C                G
Louisiana Lou and Three Card Monty John
D                      G
Oh lord, what a natural pair
C                  G           Em
Looking for a game, fortune and fame
D                            C        Bb     G
Waitin' just a little farther down the road somewhere

[Instrumental]

[Verse 3]
      G                      C
It was Friday night, lord the time was right
G                           D
Texas Billy finally made his play
   C                               G          Em
The game went on into the night and just about dawn
         D                           C          G
They were counting Bill's money lord, headed for LA

[Chorus]
C                G
Louisiana Lou and Three Card Monty John
D                      G
Oh lord, what a natural pair
C                  G           Em
Looking for a game, fortune and fame
D                            C        Bb     G
Waitin' just a little farther down the road somewhere
D                            C        Bb     G
Waitin' just a little farther down the road somewhere
