The Vegas Clue

The Vegas Clue
Copyright © 2006 by Andrew J. Dawson Jr

Verse 1
I met him on a bus heading out of Aberdeen
A little down upon luck and he was no stranger to Jim Beam
After staring out the window and trying not to doze
I think he thought that he had to talk and I was
sitting close.

Verse2
He eyed me up and said son looks like your just starting out
I bet your head your head is filled with ambition. wrapped in doubt
Well I learn some things I wish I knew when I was starting on my way
If you lend an ear you might save a tear you don’t want to cry someday

Chorus

You can start your hand in Austin
Bet on the flop in Santa FE
catch a lucky turn in Boston
Live by the river in LA
But if you gamble what you can’t afford to lose
You’re just another fool in Vegas
without the Vegas clue.

Verse 3
He said this story is old as Midas and I might as well be frank
It’s not about the gold and silver it’s about the water and a plank
And we’re born to walk out to the edge, where time gives us a shove
The waters cold and life gets old without someone to love to Chorus

Bridge

He didn’t want to tell his story
It poured out on it’s own
How he wish he had her in his life
How he would leave her all alone
How he gambled with a good women’s heart
He never thought he’d lose.
Just like those fools in Vegas, without the Vegas clue

Chorus (end)
You can start your hand in Austin
Bet on the flop in Santa FE
catch a lucky turn in Boston
It really doesn’t matter where you played
if you gambled what you can’t afford to lose
You’re just another fool in Vegas
without the Vegas clue.

He said, believe what I am saying, I’m giving you the Vegas clue, a good woman’s heart is one thing that you can’t afford to lose.

Longing For Me

Longing for me

Chorus

Whisper soft and slowly

Say the words clear and make me see

Hold me in a way that my heart knows your heart

has been longing for me
Verse 1

these days I’m spending way too many nights

out on the road

With a baby on the way and one already that’s in

tow

I need the overtime our money

gets so tight

As we try to get the things we should to raise our

family right and in the

evening I will call her on the phone

If just to tell her I’m so sorry that I leave her there

alone

and on the line she says she’s fine she’s waiting

there for me

and when I get home she says there’s only one thing

that I need will you please …

to Chorus

Verse 2

there are so many things I think that she deserves to

have

things that lesser women take for granted

And I get mad

I guess there come a time when money not so

Tight

I will dream of then but now I’ll pray to God with all

of my might and I will bring

her something small it’s never much

She always acts surprised and seems so genuinely

Touched

Then she says your arms your face your mouth your

Voice is what I need

And to hold on to this feeling that your love will never

Leave so please just:

To Chorus (2 ½ X) end
