Black Queen Lyrics - Stephen Stills

Review The Song (3)

This is a song about a card game
Black queen, holding hearts
Black queen, tear the game apart
Black queen, don't you know?
Can't beat aces all in a row, black queen, no you can't
Have mercy black queen
Don't you go mess with the black queen, no
Black queen, see the whole hand
Black queen, where's your black man?
Black queen, if he ain't in the hole
Black queen, you got some more to show me, black queen
Oh, get on me black queen
Oh, Lord, have mercy, black queen
She's called to beat me clean
Black queen, where's your bank roll?

Black queen, where did it go?
Black queen, the truth is hard
Black queen, you're playin' foolish cards, black queen

Black Queen as Metaphor | Reviewer: | 6/4/11

I appreciate your comments and posting of this powerful song. My family is from the Delta and I have a great love for this music. I may be over thinking this song since I am an academic but I would suggest that the song can also represent the women and men and the games they play with each other. It speaks to the desire of the black male to be in relationship with his "black queen. Anyway, great poetry lends itself to numerous interpretations. This what makes it great. I wonder if Stills wrote this song or heard it from blues guitarist he speaks about on one of his recordings of the song or a combination of both. I also appreciate Stills giving credit to whom credit was due. He and Jimi were my favorite guitarist from the sixties. peace, Don

Stills - "Black Queen" | Reviewer: Scott Gagel | 9/14/07

Guitar virtuoso Stephen Stills went back to delta blues and his deep southern heritage when he wrote Black Queen. While the lyrics may be considered understated, most blues songs are, no matter the writer. What sets this song apart is his unbelievable acoutice guitar. The original recording was live with no overdubbing or corrections work in the studio - - one take. If you ever had a doubt about Stills acoustice guitar expertise, then listen to this song. I've played guitar for 35 years and played many Stills songs along with CSN songs, but I have never been able to quite master this one. I can play the notes and chords in this D tuning, but never with the crazy fervor with which he plays it - - such emotion and raw, almost vicious string attack and powerful vocals that the guitar and Stills seem as though they are one with each other. I hope you enjoy this song from a master acoustic guitarist and singer as much as I do. It's one of a few songs I've heard that I never get tired of hearing it. Listen and feel the song.
