From A Jack To A King

Elvis Presley

 EE
 >From a jack to a king
 B
>From loneliness to a wedding ring
I played an ace and I won a queen
 E
And walked away with your heart

VERSE 2
 EE
 >From a jack to a king
 B
With no regret I stacked the cards last night
And lady luck played her hand just right
 EAE7
To make me king of your heart       

BRIDGE
 AE
For just a little while I thought that I might lose the game
 F#B
Then just in time I saw the twinkle in your eye

VERSE 3
 EE
 >From a jack to a king
 B
>From loneliness to a wedding ring
I played an ace and I won a queen
 E
You made me king of your heart
