Song Description

Song written to depict a guy I knew when I was in the casino business in Las Vegas. Some other characters of that time in my life are vaguely mentioned. Great gambling/gamblers song.

Story Behind the Song

This was written when a friend of mine went out and lost $3500 gambling.

Lyrics

You're sittin' way up on the mountain then you're plungin' right into the pit
When you know that the odds are against you no, it doesn't matter a bit
And just when you're thinkin' that you got 'em all beat
They turn it around and they turn on the heat
Then you give 'em a grin and you know you're a winner again

You're ready to fire, just under the wire they got you comin' and goin'
Down on the floor so you really know more than you're showin'
Just when they're sizin' you up as a mark
You show 'em bite's much worse than your bark
Then you give 'em a smile and you know that you beat 'em again

Chorus:

Whoa and that's thirty-five hundred down but you still got a lifetime to go
Push to the limit, press till they gotta say no, no, no
You get all that satisfaction
Just from stayin' alive, and stayin' in action
Never Say Die, look 'em right in the eye
Turn around and you walk away laughin'

(End Chorus)

You leave her alone when you know that you gotta resist her
So you go out on the town and end up with the queen and her sister
Though you never let royalty under the covers
You end up with more than most of her lovers
And you leave as a friend and you look like a winner again

Instrumental break

You find yourself downtown and so you decide to go slummin'
You're gettin' that feeling, know that the big score is comin'
This is it, you're really out on a roll
But all of that money's just burnin' a hole
And win or lose you're still comin' out way ahead

Chorus (repeat and out)
