Dave Dudley
"The Pool Shark"

Although Dave Dudley had numerous Top 10 songs, "The Pool Shark" was Dave Dudley's only single to reach #1.  Tom T. Hall wrote the song about a wannabe hustler who gets hustled.  It fit the gritty image of Dudley, The Road Warrior and extended his radio career another 10 years.
