Allman Brothers Band, The - Win, Lose Or Draw Lyrics




Endlessly facing the cold concrete floor
Four cold grey walls, and no doors
I barely remember the last forty days
Or just what they're holdin' me for
So far away, they tell me:
"Boy, You're here to stay; win, lose or draw"
Letters unanswered and visits so few
Cold desperation I know
I guess I'd give most anything
Oh Lord, if they'd just let me go
I'm so far away
Day after lonely, lonely day
Win, Lose or Draw

Ma, shes dead and gone
Pa just don't seem to find the time
It makes me so sad that he's forsaken me
When he's all I had left I call mine
I'm so far away
Day after lonely, lonely day
Win, lose or draw.

There's two men in one room for ten long years
Still strangers that talk away the time
'Cause each time I think of your soft hand in mine
I lay here and die one more time
And I'm so far away
Day after lonely, lonely day
Win, Lose or Draw

  1. Robert Julius Condemi

    Chuck Leavell = 'monster' player, all over this and any ABB lp was on. Credit where due.

  2. Owen McGee

    A real old blues song, this one. If you like Betts' solo from 4:01 to 5:15, you might also like Distance Traveled by the David Becker Tribune. Distinctive bluesy solo on electric guitar...here and there...

  3. Carolyn Boyd

    Fine work.Didn't make mega money for the record company but this was heavy as any of their body of work.

    ...

    Glass
    Globe Dreams

    Sunrise
    bleeds the day to come.

    Glass
    clouds shatter and rain

    Shards of
    broken dreams

    We live
    within.

     

     

    I wake up,
    sinew and sweat

    All
    through my clothes.

    Ragged
    horse about to fall,

    Take me
    ten more miles;

    Dustball
    town.

     

     

    Seen my
    tombstone

    The ground
    torn apart to plant

    This
    garden grave of nameless drifters.

    Wasted
    boots upon the sunny hill.

    Killers
    love. Lovers kill.

    Nobody
    admits the obvious.

     

     

    I climb
    up, ride the gray mare

    Long since
    breath has left her,

    To the
    edges where desert was beach

    To the
    misty ocean, now vapor and steam.

    Glass
    globe dreams.

     

    Life
    inside

    Cold
    liquid mercury sky.

    Heavy
    metal jacket

    Shrapnel
    sheets of rain

    Storm
    swirls irate

    Against
    the iron cities,

     Dark daily the winds scowl,

    Titanium
    trees sway

    -new
    metallic reality.

     

    We still
    have some postcards.

    Yet the
    world they show is gone.

    We
    destroyed the original

    Now live
    inside this new one,

    Glass
    globe dreams.

    ~snow mo’;
    snow s’mo!~
