Clint Black – A Good Run Of Bad Luck Lyrics
A high roller even when the chips are down
To win her over, i’d seen the tables turn around
She’s ten the hard way, i can feel it in my bones
She’ll be makin’ my day and not another night alone
’til it’s time for a windfall and not a single moment too soon
I’ve been too long overdue, now i’m gonna shoot the moon
I’d bet it all on a good run of bad luck
Seven come eleven and she could be mine
Luck be a lady, and i’m gonna find love comin’ on the bottom line
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/clint-black/the-greatest-hits/a-good-run-of-bad-luck.html]
I’ve been to the table, and i’ve lost it all before
I’m willin’ and able, always comin’ back for more
Squeezin’ out a thin dime ’til there’s no one hanging on my arm
I’ve gambled on a third time, a fool will tell you it’s a charm
If i’m bettin’ on a loser, i’m gonna have a devil to pay
But it’s the only game i know to play, it doesn’t matter anyway
Repeat chorus twice
