Looking for a friend who posted this somewhere else:
'Many years ago, I made a CD of playing card-related songs. I found a song I never heard before. It was a ballad about a little girl in the old west who, the story goes, didn’t have any dolls to play with, so she played with a deck of cards and made up stories about the face cards.
She grows up and falls in love with the local bandit/no-good young man named something like the Jack of Spades/Hearts/etc. even though he was the villain in her stories growing up. They ride off together as the posse hunts the Jack and, if I recall correctly, the Jack lets her take a bullet for him as he escapes.
I have searched for all sorts of variants of song titles “Jack of Spades/Hearts/etc.” as well as searching on the story elements, but no avail.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!"
