SOMETIMES YOU WIN
(Lee Rocker)
LEE ROCKER (ALLIGATOR RECORDS, 2007)

Well, I took off and there ain't no turning back
Four hundred miles and the sky was turning black
If the road keeps on movin' and the rain don't start to fall
I can make it back by midnight if the engine doesn't stall

Walk up to the table, lay some trouble down
The dealer throws the cards and I start to look around
Over my shoulder, I think I see an ace
And a guy at the table got a smile upon his face

Sometimes you loose and sometimes you win
Sometimes you loose and sometimes you win
Sometimes you loose and sometimes you win
Sometimes you win

In the flicker of a second, feel the shadow of a doubt
Yeah, I seen this game before, I know what it's about
I couldn't stay in Memphis, not for another day
Baby, take a bet you cannot win if you don't play

Sometimes you loose and sometimes you win
Sometimes you loose and sometimes you win
Sometimes you loose and sometimes you win
Sometimes you win

Well, I took off and there ain't no turning back
Four hundred miles and the sky was turning black
If the road keeps on movin and the rain don't start to fall
I can make it back by midnight if the engine doesn't stall

Sometimes you loose and sometimes you win
Sometimes you loose and sometimes you win
Sometimes you loose and sometimes you win
Sometimes you win

Sometimes you loose and sometimes you win
(Sometimes you loose and sometimes you win)
She said, sometimes you loose and sometimes you win
(Sometimes you loose and sometimes you win)
You know, sometimes you loose and sometimes you win
(Sometimes you loose and sometimes you win)
