  • "Smackwater Jack" is a song written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King.

It was subsequently covered by many artists, most famously by Quincy Jones as the title song of his 1971 album Smackwater Jack. Rolling Stone critic Jon Landau described "Smackwater Jack" as an "uptempo shuffle". Its lyrics tell the story of a confrontation between the outlaw Smackwater Jack and Big Jim the Chief. In this way it differs from the other songs on Tapestry, which are more personal and based on expressing emotions. Billboard ranked both sides of the "So Far Away"/"Smackwater Jack" single together on the Billboard Hot 100. The single peaked at number 14. (en)
