Lyrics







Lady Luck Abandoned Me

I live in Dallas
But my heart's in Waxahachie
The girl I love lives there with another man
Tonight I roam the prairie
Without my sweet Mary
But he won her fair and square in a poker game

I've only me to blame
For my agony and shame
But Lady Luck abandoned me that night
What I did was very risky
I drank too damn much whiskey
And I didn't know my left hand from my right

I live in Dallas
But my heart's in Waxahachie
The girl I love lives there with another man
Tonight I roam the prairie
Without my sweet Mary
But he won her fair and square in a poker game

That night I lost my pickup
My rifle and my dog
Sweet Mary was the very last to go
I lost 30 head of cattle
A tractor and my barn
But losing my sweet Mary was the biggest blow

I live in Dallas
But my heart's in Waxahachie
The girl I love lives there with another man
Tonight I roam the prairie
Without my sweet Mary
But he won her fair and square in a poker game

I lost my taste for whiskey
And I gave up playing cards
For either of the two I have very low regards
Mixing cards and whiskey
Was a lethal recipe
You can convict me of stupidity in the first degree

I live in Dallas
But my heart's in Waxahachie
The girl I love lives there with another man
Tonight I roam the prairie
Without my sweet Mary
But he won her fair and square in a poker game

He won her fair and square in a poker game

I lost my sweet Mary in a poker game
