Lyrics for Song: Mr. Mudd And Mr. Gold
Lyrics for Album: Calvin Russell [1997]

Mr. Mudd and Mr. Gold (Townes Van Zandt)

The wicked king of clubs awoke

It was to his queen he turned

His lips were laughing as they spoke

His eyes like bullets burned

The sun's upon a gambling day

His queen smiled low and blissfully

Let's make some wretched fool pay

It was play she did agree.

He sent his deuce down into diamond

Four to heart and trey to spade

Three kings with their legions come

And preparations soon were made

They voted club the day's commander

Gave him an army face and number

All but the outlaw jack of diamonds

And the aces in the sky.

So he gave his seven first instructions

Spirit me a game of stud

Stakes unscarred by limitations

'tween a man named Gold and a man named Mudd

Club filled bold with greedy vapors

Till his long green eyes did glow

Mudd was left with the sighs and trembles

Watching his hard earned money go.

Flushes fell on Gold like water

Tens they paired and paired again

But the aces only flew through heaven

The diamond jack called no man friend

The diamond queen saw Mudd's ordeal

Began to think of her long lost son

Fell to her knees with a mother's mercy

And prayed to the angels every one.

Now the diamond queen she prayed and prayed

The diamond angel filled Mudd's hole

The wicked king of clubs himself

Fell face down in front of Gold.

Three kings come to club's command

The angels from the sky did ride

Three kings up on the streets of Gold

Three fireballs on the muddy side.

The club queen heard her husbands call

But that queen of the diamond's joy

When the outlaw in the heavenly hall

Turned out to be her wandering boy

Mudd he checked and Gold bet all

Mudd he raised and Gold did call

The smile just melted off his face

When Mudd turned over that diamond ace.

Here is what this story's told

You feel like Mudd you'll end up Gold

You feel like lost you'll end up found

So amigo lay thoses raises down.
