Jack Dempsey's Crown

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jim Lauderdale

Don't count me out until I'm down
Still on my feet if not for long
I'm the one who won Jack Dempsey's crown
Gather round, I'm gonna tell the town

Tell the town, tell the town
Get 'em jumping up and down
Let 'em smile, let 'em frown
'Cause I'm the man who won
Yes, I'm the very one
Lock up when you're done
I am the man who won Jack Dempsey's crown

Show me a modicum of respect
You know I wasn't always such a wreck
Ever since I won Jack Dempsey's crown
There doesn't seem no place to go but down

Tell the town, tell the town
Get 'em jumping up and down
Let 'em smile, let 'em frown
'Cause I'm the man who won
Yes, I'm the very one
Lock up when you're done
I am the man who won Jack Dempsey's crown

Cut my baby teeth on a golden glove
The art of self defense is my first love
That's how I come to win Jack Dempsey's crown
I didn't waste my time like some fool clown

Tell the town, tell the town
Get 'em jumping up and down
Let 'em smile, let 'em frown
'Cause I'm the man who won
Yes, I'm the very one
Lock up when you're done
I am the man who won Jack Dempsey's crown

Yes I'm the man who won Jack Dempsey's crown
