Bm                                            
Bobby Jack Miller was a real lady killer from way back                                                                                                                                                                                       
Em                                                                                                                                            
Word got around, all the women in town called him Brutus
         Bm                                  Em
He was a cross between Charlie Sheen and Pat Sajak
   Em                                     F#
He wore dark sox, green air walks and Ber-mudas

Bm                                                  
Bobby Jack Miller had a knack for the whacking of a croquet ball
       Em                                                                                                                                                     
It was fact, when he whacked you could feel it in the back of your ribcage
Bm                                                       
Hear what I'm sayin' you could tell who's playin' by the shake of the wall
         Em                                                 F#
With his mallet in the air comin' down you'd swear it was a 12 gauge


[Chorus]
         Bm
He was a Croquet King (Bobby Jack, Bobby Jack)
         Bm
He got a nine ring, swing (Bobby Jack, Bobby Jack)
        Em                          F#
When he swings that mallet, you can hear it ring, 
         Bm
he was a Croquet King (Bobby Jack, Bobby Jack)

      Bm                                            
So he took his forte and found him a way, to make a liv-in'
         Em                                       
He was a self made man with a farmer's tan on his neck
         Bm                                              
He had a girl named Sophie to carry every and trophy and ribbon
        Em                                                    F#                                                                                                  
When it came down to money Bobbie's honey never looked at the check


[Chorus]
         Bm
He was a Croquet King (Bobby Jack, Bobby Jack)
         Bm
He got a nine ring, swing (Bobby Jack, Bobby Jack)
        Em                          F#
When he swings that mallet, you can hear it ring, 
         Bm
he was a Croquet King (Bobby Jack, Bobby Jack)

Bobby Jack Miller was killed in Manila by a fly ball
Em                                           
Clobbered by a scamp at a Croquet camp in his honor
Bm                                                          Em
Missed the other players went through a couple of layers of dry wall
            Bm                        
[Rubato] He didn't have a chance, 
   Em                             F#
it got him in the pants, he was a gon-er


[Chorus]
         Bm
He was a Croquet King (Bobby Jack, Bobby Jack)
         Bm
He got a nine ring, swing (Bobby Jack, Bobby Jack)
        Em                          F#
When he swings that mallet, you can hear it ring, 
         Bm
he was a Croquet King (Bobby Jack, Bobby Jack)
