WIN OR LOSE
a blues

by Stephen Brooke ©2005

Playin’ at your table,
never let me choose;
I have nothin’ to wager,
nothin’ but these blues.
Toss the dice and tell me
if I win or lose.

Because tomorrow is a story,
a story I know so well.
Yes, tomorrow is a story,
a story I know too well.

Feelin’ just like Muddy,
like I can’t be satisfied;
nothin’ seems to help me,
nothin’ that I’ve tried.
I’m playin’ double or nothin’
and lettin’ it all ride.

Because tomorrow is a story,
a story I know so well.
Oh, tomorrow is a story,
a story I know too well.

Got my troubles, baby,
but trouble’s nothin’ new;
things are never easy
no matter what I do.
But I’m not blamin’ life;
I’m sure not blamin’ you.

Because tomorrow is a story,
a story I know so well.
Yes, tomorrow is a story,
a story I know too well.

Playin’ at your table,
never let me choose;
I have nothin’ to wager,
nothin’ but these blues.
Toss the dice and tell me now
if I win or lose,

When tomorrow is a story,
a story I know so well.
Oh yes, tomorrow is a story,
a story I know too well.
