a good run of bad luck lyrics – clint black

a high roller even when the chips are down
to win her over, i’d see 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
it’s time for a windfall and not a single minute 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

i’ve been to the tables, and i’ve lost it all before
i’m willin’ and able, always comin’ back for more
squeezin’ out a thin dime till 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 betting 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 (x2)
