Billy Joe Shaver - Checkers and Chess Lyrics

(Chorus)
I'm playing Checkers while they're playing Chess
They make the big moves and make me a little less
Even when I win, beat the pants off of the best
I'm still playing Checkers while they're playing Chess

(Verse)
I've learned all the rules of the game
Fast way I play 'em when I lose 'em just the same
Nothing's fair in this world of blind chance
A rich man takes the money, the old man takes the blame

(Chorus)
I'm playing Checkers while they're playing Chess
They make the big moves and make me a little less
Even when I win, beat the pants off of the best
I'm still playing Checkers while they're playing Chess

(Instrumental break)

(Verse 2)
The day were born where all ? old
Some cuts from the cloth straight from the king's robe
The rest of us can't even be pawn
But we wear soldier's uniforms, dying for their ?

(Chorus)
I'm playing Checkers while they're playing Chess
They make the big moves and make me a little less
Even when I win, beat the pants off of the best
I'm still playing Checkers while they're playing Chess
