Wish I had a known ya
When you were a little younger />Around me you might have learned
a thing or two
If
I had known you longer
You might be a little Stronger />And maybe youd shoot straighter
Then you doooo />Maybe youd shoot straighter
Then you do As
he walked into the poolroom
You could tell he didnt fit

In his handmade boots, custom suits
and pearl
handled shooting stick
Tonight thered be a showdown />then everyone would know
Who shoots the meanest game
around
The Baron or Billy Joe
Billy Joe looked Edgy

About to lose his cool
But the Barons hands were
steady
As the two began to duel
Yeah he was like a
general
on a battlefield of slate
And hed say to
Billy Joe
each time he sunk the eight
Hed Say />
Wish I had a known ya
When you were a little
younger
Around me you might have learned
a thing or
two
If I had known you longer
You might be a little
Stronger
And maybe youd shoot straighter
Then you
doooo
Maybe youd shoot straighter
Then you do />
Now Billy Joe was busted
But he hadnt felt the
sting
And from the far end of the table
He threw his
mothers wedding ring
And he said you won my money />But it aint gonna do the trick
Ill bet this ring on one
more game
against your fancy stick
The Barons eyes
got foggy
as the ring rolled on the felt
And he
almost doubled over
Like he had been hit below the belt

Twenty years ago
It was the ring his wife had worn

And he didnt know before he left
that a son would
soon be born
It sounded just like thunder
when the
Baron shot the break
But it grew thickly quiet
as He
lined up the eight
Then a warm hand touched his shoulder

and it chilled him to the bone
When he turned and
saw the woman
Who had loved him for so long
The game
was never finished
The eight ball never fell
The
Baron calmly picked it up
and put it on the shelf />Then he placed the ring
In the hands that held him long
ago
and he tossed that fancy shooting stick
To his
son Billy Joe
And he said

Wish I had a known
ya
When you were a little younger
Around me you
might have learned
a thing or two
If I had known you
longer
You might be a little Stronger
And maybe youd
shoot straighter
Then you doooo
Maybe youd shoot
straighter
Then you do
