After a Christmas Party I was sporting a hangover and thought about doing a song about vodka. But that day I came across an article about gambling addiction - for which my hung over guitar playing seemed more appropriate - and so the song took on a new direction. Played in open C with some didgeridoo for effect.


I've got some money in my pocket, and the alcohol is flowing and I'm
Feeling like my luck will change
Hold Them; Stud; or Omaha its all the same
The table, stories, and faces - they never change

The woman with the painted lips, the streaked blond hair
and endless chips and her Manic play yeah
Under the Gun and out of luck, its just another game yeah

The waitress is smiling and my,
Desperation is growing and the ,
Chase has just begun for another long night...

The power I get from winning keeps me coming back from always losing
The thrill of the chase is the only drug I like

But how long can the loser, stay at the table? Wondering what happened??
Cowboys, Dimes, and Lucky Draws
The Rock, the Scare Card and then the Fall...
