Ricky Van Shelton – From A Jack To A king Lyrics

 

From a jack to a king

From loneliness to a wedding ring

I played an ace and I won a queen

And walked away with your heart

 

From a jack to a king

With no regrets I stacked the cards last night

And lady luck played her hand just right

And made me king of your heart

 

For just a little while

I thought that I might lose the game

Then just in time

I saw the twinkle in your eye

 

From a jack to a king

From loneliness to a wedding ring

I played an ace and I won a queen

You made me king of your heart

 

For just a little while

I thought that I might lose the game

Then just in time

I saw the twinkle in your eye

 

From a jack to a king

From loneliness to a wedding ring

I played an ace and I won a queen

You made me king of your heart…
