Lyrics

Derby Day

Written By: Max Gainey

DERBY DAY

Pour the bourbon golden brown it’s Derby Day
Lay a hundred dollars down it’s Derby Day
Ladies dressed in hats and skirts
College girls take off their shirts
Keep on betting till it hurts it’s Derby Day

Folks coming in from everywhere to watch the horses go
It only takes two minutes to win or lose your dough
Lots of friends and lots of strangers treated just the same
Place bets on Lucky Thirteen just because they like the name

(Repeat Chorus)

Derby Day, Derby Day
All my bad luck’s gone away
Looks like good luck’s here to stay
Can’t go wrong it’s Derby Day

Mint juleps chilled and waiting to receive a fresh green leaf
Jockeys sporting silks that are bright beyond belief
People picking winners and betting their last dime
From infield to box seats they have a real good time

(Repeat Chorus)
