    Another thread reminded me of Faces and Rod Stewart. Faces was a British group back around 1969-1970. One of their pieces of, what I consider great work, was Pool Hall Richard. I had it on their album, however the album ended up lost at some point.

    I haven't located it anywhere in CD form, the closest I've come is a Ron Wood guitar thing on Youtube. Not sure where else to look. Help appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!




    Pool Hall Richard Lyrics

    (rod stewart, ron wood)

    Sweatin' hard, I didn't get a shower
    All I did was stand around and get too hot
    Knowin' all the people walkin' on my side
    Losin' all my money and I'm killin' time
    Ol' bill he come a-runnin' like he's gettin' some
    Makes you kind of jealous but it sure is fun
    I don't mind but he wants my lady too

    You know the crowd gets bigger
    As the word goes 'round
    Pool hall king was playin' back in town
    Minnesota fats standin' up at the back
    Tryin' to hide himself in a plastic mack
    You ought to hear the silence
    When the kid walks in
    His reputation's bigger than gasoline
    I don't mind but he's tryin' to fill my lady too, ha ha

    Pool hall richard
    You're far too wicked we know, ha
    Pool hall richard
    Kid you're wicked, we know
    You broke my heart
    Same as you ... could ever do

    With your yellow carnation
    And your pink satin shoe
    You make me jealous, but I worship you
    One day soon I'm gonna beat you clean
    Wipe that smile right off your chin
    Everybody gonna drive from miles around
    Cuein' up to see me take away your crown
    Then you'll never never ever take my lady then

    Get out

    Pool hall richard

    [Pool Hall Richard lyrics on http://www.elyricsworld.com]
    You're far too wicked we know, ha
    Pool hall richard
    Kid you're wicked, we know
    You broke my heart
    Same as you ... could ever do

    Dig this

    Bam goes the brown, that's another one down
    Know they play much better when the sun goes down
    Bang goes the green, you're so obscene
    Your hands are dirty but your scent is clean

    Bam goes the blue, lock away your cue
    The pool hall king is hustlin' you
    Bam goes the 8-ball, didn't see it spin at all
    This kid can play, oh yeah

    Bam goes the brown, ooh another one down
    Know they play much better when the sun goes down
    Bang goes the green, you're so obscene
    Your hands are dirty, your scent is clean

    Damn the pink, one more to sink
    Gonna beat you someday
    'cause you're makin' me sick
    Down on the black, at the back of the pack
    Aw, you nearly missed, you ain't so hot

    Pool hall richard
    Kid you're wicked, we know
    You broke my heart
    Same as you ... could ever do

    You're breakin' my heart
    But you're stealin' my tart, no no no
    Shut up
