The Vegas Clue
Copyright © 2006 by Andrew J. Dawson Jr

Verse 1
I met him on a bus heading out of Aberdeen
A little down upon luck and he was no stranger to Jim Beam
After staring out the window and trying not to doze
I think he thought that he had to talk and I was
sitting close.

Verse2
He eyed me up and said son looks like your just starting out
I bet your head your head is filled with ambition. wrapped in doubt
Well I learn some things I wish I knew when I was starting on my way
If you lend an ear you might save a tear you don’t want to cry someday

Chorus

You can start your hand in Austin
Bet on the flop in Santa FE
Catch a lucky turn in Boston
Live by the river in LA
But if you gamble what you can’t afford to lose
You’re just another fool in Vegas
without the Vegas clue.

Verse 3
He said this story is old as Midas and I might as well be frank
It’s not about the gold and silver it’s about the water and a plank
And we’re born to walk out to the edge, where time gives us a shove
The waters cold and life gets old without someone to love to Chorus

Bridge

He didn’t want to tell his story
It poured out on it’s own
How he wish he had her in his life
How he would leave her all alone
How he gambled with a good women’s heart
He never thought he’d lose.
Just like those fools in Vegas, without the Vegas clue

Chorus (end)
You can start your hand in Austin
Bet on the flop in Santa FE
catch a lucky turn in Boston
It really doesn’t matter where you played
if you gambled what you can’t afford to lose
You’re just another fool in Vegas
without the Vegas clue.

He said, believe what I am saying,
I’m giving you the Vegas clue,
a good woman’s heart is one thing
that you can’t afford to lose.
