lirik lagu stan rogers – second effort

Loading...

i’ve been sitting here crying since long before the day be-gan
with my pockets full of nothing but broken dreams and my head in my empty hands
the winnings that i thought i had and come so far to get
are further away then they’ve ever been, they’ve been taken by anoth-er man

i wouldn’t take a train for home even if i could
cause they’ve been saving their joy for the hometown boy who went away to make it good
i bet they cleared away the parlour so my ma can dance me in the door
and the old man can wink, and pour me a drink and ask me what the tears are for

it’s harder to try a-gain than it was to be-gin
a man can play a lone hand in a high stakes game, but it doesn’t mean he’s gonna win
and somehow i’ve got to keep from getting further down
before i buy myself a bottle of cheap escape, and a ticket to anoth-er town

i know i’m not crying ’cause i think i’ve had it mighty tough
i did my best with all the rest, but it just wasn’t good e-nough
and i’ve been working and training too long just to make it here
to merely swallow my pride and walk outside and come back anoth-er year

it’s harder to try a-gain than it was to be-gin
a man can play a lone hand in a high stakes game, but it doesn’t mean he’s gonna win
and somehow i’ve got to keep from getting further down
before i buy myself a bottle of cheap escape, and a ticket to anoth-er town
i want to drown in the grape and make my escape, on a ticket to anoth-er town
