The Baron

Wish I had a known ya

When you were a little younger

Around me you might have learned

a thing or two

If I had known you longer

You might be a little Stronger

And maybe youd shoot straighter

Then you doooo

Maybe youd shoot straighter

Then you do



As he walked into the poolroom

You could tell he didnt fit

In his handmade boots, custom suits

and pearl handled shooting stick

Tonight thered be a showdown

then everyone would know

Who shoots the meanest game around

The Baron or Billy Joe

Billy Joe looked Edgy

About to lose his cool

But the Barons hands were steady

As the two began to duel

Yeah he was like a general

on a battlefield of slate

And hed say to Billy Joe

each time he sunk the eight

Hed Say



Wish I had a known ya

When you were a little younger

Around me you might have learned

a thing or two

If I had known you longer

You might be a little Stronger

And maybe youd shoot straighter

Then you doooo

Maybe youd shoot straighter

Then you do



Now Billy Joe was busted

But he hadnt felt the sting

And from the far end of the table

He threw his mothers wedding ring

And he said you won my money

But it aint gonna do the trick

Ill bet this ring on one more game

against your fancy stick

The Barons eyes got foggy

as the ring rolled on the felt

And he almost doubled over

Like he had been hit below the belt

Twenty years ago

It was the ring his wife had worn

And he didnt know before he left

that a son would soon be born

It sounded just like thunder

when the Baron shot the break

But it grew thickly quiet

as He lined up the eight

Then a warm hand touched his shoulder

and it chilled him to the bone

When he turned and saw the woman

Who had loved him for so long

The game was never finished

The eight ball never fell

The Baron calmly picked it up

and put it on the shelf

Then he placed the ring

In the hands that held him long ago

and he tossed that fancy shooting stick

To his son Billy Joe

And he said



Wish I had a known ya

When you were a little younger

Around me you might have learned

a thing or two

If I had known you longer

You might be a little Stronger

And maybe youd shoot straighter

Then you doooo

Maybe youd shoot straighter

Then you do
