Very nice playful fun intro, gets things going nicely. Excellent lyrics and vocals, delivered pitch perfectly and with a lot of feeling and tone. The music is fine, nice and fun and provides the perfect background for the vocals. I don't normally listen to country music but this won me over straight away and I really like it, 5/5 for me. Best of luck.

Lyrics

This ageless singing cowboy has seen some lousy hands
In this wild and rowdy card game that is my way of life
I live in sleezy bar rooms and I just lost another wife
I never get that one big break, I remain a one man band
When every night is over I'm a tired and lonely man

I've lost my share of hands for sure, but a couple nights ago
You sat in at my table, asked my name like you wanted to know
You ordered me up a drink and that whiskey tasted fine
You turned my luck around that night, just in the nick of time
Both my guitar and my card game were in a state of decline

I sense a resurrection in this drinking gambling tired and lonely game
It never seemed like I was wrong, but I sure got all the blame

(Chorus)
Dealer won't you deal me a decent hand this time
Both one-eyed jacks and a pair of deuces and that pot will all be mine
I'm really tired of waiting to be dealt a winning hand
Losing everything tonight ain't exactly what I planned

Some one-eyed jacks and deuces and you by my side
Was a winning combination of drinking, cards, and pride
Now I walk out on my own through the bar's front door
No bouncers called to toss me out like all the times before
Some one-eyed jacks and deuces wild and I don't have to be a cowboy anymore

Some one-eyed jacks and deuces and I don't have to be a cowboy anymore
All I need is her and Uncle Jack, no more losing like before

(Chorus)
Oh, dealer won't you deal me a decent hand this time
Both one-eyed jacks and a pair of deuces and the pot will all be mine
I'm really tired of waiting to be dealt a winning hand
Losing everything tonight ain't exactly what I planned

Some one-eyed jacks and deuces
Some one-eyed jacks and deuces
Some one-eyed jacks and deuces and I don't have to be a cowboy anymore

ah, yeah
Giddee-up!
