(Words/Music: Jim Croce, Album: You Don’t Mess Around With Jim, ABC 1972)

themesong: shooting dirty pool

I can’t think of any other songs about pool, clean, dirty, or otherwise. Of course, I don’t really need an excuse to post this great song.

Well a hush fell over the pool room
When Jimmy come boppin’ in off the street
And when the cuttin’ was done
The only part that wasn’t bloody
Was the soles of the big man’s feet
Yeah he was cut in bout a hundred places
And he was shot in a couple more
And you better believe
They sung a different kind of story
When big Jim hit the floor
