Corb Lund - A Game In Town Like This

rate me

Playin' late night crazy pot size games with the Asian dealers who<br />

With all that tax free money got deeper pockets than I do<br />

I can't fade that kind of action but my name's there on the list<br />

Who would go to Vegas with a game in town like this?<br />

<br />

Stuck in chilly morning traffic cuz I always played too long<br />

Headed north across the bridge and wish'n you were there at home<br />

You used to wake all sleepy headed and ask me if I won<br />

Sometimes I'd just say nothing and now I'm living with what I've done.<br />

<br />

I'm a losin' lately gambler but that's not all I've ever been<br />

Cuttin' back your losses is just another way to win.<br />

<br />

The chips were racked and ready and I was standing up to leave<br />

Looked down and caught a diamond queen tuggin' at my sleeve<br />

My bleary, up-all-nighted eyes misread it for a heart<br />

Now the money's gone, it's just past dawn and we're a half world apart.<br />

<br />

I'm a losin' lately gambler but that's not all I've ever been<br />

Cuttin' back your losses is just another way to win.<br />

<br />

I sat down with 'em one last time as I passed thru months ago<br />

Donated a couple thousand, smiled, stood up and hit the road.<br />

With that old familiar empty feelin' of time and treasure lost<br />

The game's the same, ain't nothin's changed except now I know the cost<br />

<br />

I'm a losin' lately gambler but I've booked my share of wins<br />

I still see some value there but my edge is pretty thin<br />

I'm a losin' lately gambler but that's not all I've ever been<br />

Cuttin' back your losses is just another way to win.<br />

<br />

I can't fade that kind of action but my name's there on the list<br />

Who would go to Vegas with a game in town like this?
