Cockburn, Bruce - You Don't Have To Play The Horses Lyrics




So we wait beside the desert
Nothing left to give away
Naked as the Hanged Man's secrets
Nothing left to do but pray

You don't have to play the horses
Life's a gamble all the same
It don't take much to make you lose sight
Of the object of the game

Anyone can be a soldier
It's a prevalent disease
Oh God I don't know where to step now
Help me find the right road please

So we wait beside the desert
Nothing left to give away
Naked as the Hanged Man's secrets
Praying for the break of day

    it is utterly fantastic, at the risk of being presumptuous i'm gonna suggest an album called silent passage by bob carpenter, you might like it.

  2. Nelson Sandoval

    This song has such significance in my life that to me is the best he has ever made!
