Ace in the Hole

ŠPaul Simon, released on One Trick Pony, 1980

.

Some people say Jesus that's the ace in the hole

But I never met the man so I don't really know

Maybe some Christmas if I'm sick and alone

He will look up my number

Call me on the phone and say

Hey, boy, where you been so long

Don't you know me

I'm your ace in the hole

.

Two hundred dollars, that's my ace in the hole

When I'm down. dirty and desperate

That's my emergency bank roll (I got...)

Two hundred dollars, that's the price on the street

If you wanna get some quality

That's the price you got to meet (and the man says...)

Hey, Junior, where you been so long

Don't you know me

I'm your ace in the hole

(talk about ace in the hole)

.

Once I was crazy and my ace in the hole

Was that I knew that I was crazy

So I never lost my self-control

I just walk in the middle of the road

I sleep in the middle of the bed

I stop in the middle of a sentence

And the voice in the middle of my head said

Hey, Junior, where you been so long

Don't you know me

I'm your ace in the hole (oh yeah)

.

Ace in the hole

Lean on me

Don't you know me

I'm your guarantee

.

Riding on this rolling bus

Beneath a stormy sky

With a slow moon rising

And the smokestacks drifting by

In the hour when the heart is weakest

And the memory Is strong

When time has stopped

But the bus Just rolls along

.

Roll on, roll on

Roll on. roll on

Roll on, roll on

.

Some people say music that's their ace in

the hole

Just your ordinary rhythm and blues

Your basic rock and roll

You can sit on the top of the beat

You can lean on the side of the beat

You can hang from the bottom of the beat

But you got to admit that the music is sweet

.

Where you been so long

Don't you know me

I'm your ace in the hole (oh yeah)

.

Ace in the hole

Lean on me

Don t you know me

I'm your guarantee

.

Some people say music that's their ace in

the hole

Just your ordinary rhythm and blues

Your basic rock and roll

You can sit on the top of the beat

You can lean on the side of the beat

You can hang from the bottom of the beat

But you gotta admit that the music is sweet

.

Hey, Junior. I'm your ace in the hole

Hey. Junior, I'm your ace in the hole

Hey, Junior, I'm your ace in the hole

Hey, Junior, I'm your ace in the hole
