Big Boy George Owens [as The Coon Crap Game]
Barbecue Bob [as The Crap Game; with Charlie Hicks]
Existed since 1901; written by John Queen (white) from New Orleans. Crap game was prohibited and so everybody split as soon as the heat fell in, in this case leaving a considerable amount of money on the card table, grabbed by the last one to leave; I got mine!
