As discussed in this thread, I am considering creating a dynamic SoB campaign story.

In thinking about character backgrounds and potential story hooks, I recalled a wonderful song that I would like to use as a story theme.

Many years ago, I made a CD of playing card-related songs. In looking for songs to include, 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 finding this song would be greatly appreciated!

Possibly "Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts" by Bob Dylan?

Thanks for the suggestion. That's a great song, but it is not the one I was looking for.

I found it after three days of searching:
