[Chorus]~
C
Wish I had a-known ya

    Am                C
When you were a little younger

      Am                                   C
Around me you might have learned a thing or two

C
If I had known you longer

   Am                C
You might be a little stronger

   Am                C                   Am G F
And maybe you'd shoot straighter than you do

F                 G                   C
Maybe you'd shoot straighter than you do


[Verse]~
     Am                                  D
As he walked into the poolroom,.. you could tell he didn't fit

      C                                 E
In his handmade boots,.. custom suits,.. and pearl handled shooting stick

Am                                  D
Tonight there'd be a showdown,.. then everyone would know

   C                                    E
Who shoots the meanest game around - The Baron or Billy Joe

Am                     D
Billy Joe looked edgy,.. about to lose his cool

       C                                 E
But the Baron's hands were steady,.. as the two began to duel

     Am                         D
Yeah,.. he was like a general on a battlefield of slate

        C                     E
And he'd say to Billy Joe each time he sunk the eight

G
He'd say!!!

   Am                C

   Am                C                   Am G F
And maybe you'd shoot straighter than you do

F                 G                   C
Maybe you'd shoot straighter than you do


[Verse]~
   Am                           D
Now Billy Joe was busted,.. but he hadn't felt the sting

   C                                 E
And from the far end of the table,.. he threw his mother's wedding ring

      Am                             D
And he said "you won my money,.. but it ain't gonna do the trick

    C                              E
I'll bet this ring on one more game against your fancy stick"


   Am                            D
The Baron's eyes got foggy as the ring rolled on the felt

      C                                    E
And he almost doubled over like he had been hit below the belt

Am                           D
Twenty years ago,.. it was the ring his wife had worn

      C                                 E
And he didn't know before he left that a son would soon be born


  Am                                 D
It sounded just like thunder when the Baron shot the break

      C                        E
But it grew thickly quiet as he lined up the eight

      Am                                    D
Then a warm hand touched his shoulder and it chilled him to the bone

       C                                E
When he turned and saw the woman who had loved him for so long


   Am                           D
The game was never finished; the eight ball never fell

   C                             E
The Baron calmly picked it up and put it on the shelf

       Am                                D
Then he placed the ring in the hands that held him long ago

      C                                       E
And he tossed that fancy shooting stick to his son Billy Joe

G
And he said!!!

F                 G                   C
Maybe you'd shoot straighter than you do
