Tom Paxton - Bet On The Blues Lyrics




Five hundred'll buy you a stack
Bet it all on the red or the black
And you lose
Bet on the blues
They tell me you're a gamblin' man
Try to beat the house if you can
And you lose
Bet on the blues
If you're looking to get an inside slant
If you're looking for something so good
You can't refuse
Bet on the blues
Find a man who thinks he's over the hump
And I'm here to tell you he's the kind of a chump
You can use
Bet on the blues
Bet on the blues
Your sun is shining today
Even money says you'll be paying
Some dues
Bet on the blues
You've found your lady fair
Eight to five she's wearing
Her traveling shoes
Bet on the blues
If you're looking to get an inside slant
If you're looking for something so good
You can't refuse
Bet on the blues
Find a man who thinks he's over the hump
And I'm here to tell you he's the kind of a chump
You can use
Bet on the blues
Bet on the blues
Five hundred'll buy you a stack
Bet it all on the red or the black
And you lose
Bet on the blues
They tell me you're a gamblin' man
Try to beat the house if you can
And you lose
Bet on the blues
Bet on the blues
Bet on the blues
Bet on the blues
