Song Description

A somewhat gloomy song about addictive love on one level and gambling addiction on another

Lyrics

Left Memphis heading south
Highway 61 to Louisiana
Now I'm Sittin' on the porch in Bayou Segnet
the lights of New Orleans look like a carnival
The sun goin' down is like a flower
Waiting in the wings of the velvet hour

she laughs in the dusk Shards of gold and orange
In the twilight clouds soft like cotton
She never lets you know when she comes she just arrives
And havin' enough is worse than having nothing at all
She lays opened like a flower
Lady Luck alone in the velvet tower
Sometimes everything's in vain
When you idolize the game

And the sign in the shipyard says "Jesus Saves"
But the redneck boys don't get what she's after
When the whole world seems like it's torn up dreams
It's all close to me when the rain pours down sparks of glass
That drip from the petals of a flower
Alone out in the rain for hours
And how come everything's in vain
do you idolize the game?
You know everything's insane
when you idolize the gain
