The Cincinnati Kid (Ray Charles)

He came with the name Cincinnati A kid with no ace in the hole On a hot poker pot, Cincinnati Had staked his heart and soul He played night and day like a demon And prayed for that one lucky day When the lush royal flush of his dreaming Is just a game away Beyond all the green felt shadows His own queen of hearts will wait But till he's king of the green felt shadows She'll wait, and wait, and wait For sure as the cards will be fallin' And chips in the pot pyramid, For the book "chips in the pot PYRAMID" was one correction Lady Luck will be calling Whoah, the Cincinnati kid I mean the Cincinnati kid Whoah, the Cincinnati kid Whoah, the Cincinnati kid I'm talking about the Cincinnati kid Everybody knows the Cincinnati kid Have you heard about that the Cincinnati kid
