That thing in Reno
Please forgive me babe for I know not what I do
That damn casino
Got underneath my skin and turned me loose
I just can?t see no
Reason to get bent all out of shape
That thing in Reno
Ain?t nothing but an innocent mistake

That thing in Reno
You had to be there just to understand the deal
How could we know
What would happen every time they spin the wheel
And that guy from repo
Just hang up on him the next time that he calls
Cause that thing in Reno
Ain?t nothing like he?s telling you at all

That thing in Reno ain?t no thing to cry about
It?s just that my ship was at the airport
When my train was pulling out

That thing in Reno
You bring it up each day now without fail
Why do you have to be so
Determined to know every damn detail
Those silken panties
I just don?t know what more that I can say
I just wish that thing in Reno
Would turn around and kindly go away

Not you baby, please don?t go
It?s just a misunderstanding, a streak of bad luck
You?re blowing this way outta, way outta, way outta

That thing in Reno
One indiscretion leaves me hanging in the wind
Take me back to Reno
Forgive me Lord cause I?m doing it all again

Lord, it?s much too late for me now
