You can quit while you’re winning
The wheel’s still a-spinning
You can take your chips and calmly walk away
You don’t have to play
At the last intersection you changed your direction
But you’ve still got the feeling
That perhaps you made a mistake
That’s a risk you take
You’ve got your head full of plans for the future
And a heart full of wounds from the past
Your walking round in a world of confusion
‘Staid of livin’ today
You set your sights on a hard-hearted woman
But she turns her head when she sees you coming along
Seems you got it wrong
And all you need is a sweet little girl
To change everything in your world
But oh, no! That’s not how it goes!
You can count your blessings
Or just sit guessing
What in the world is gonna happen to you?
What ya gonna do?
Is it a matter of chance or just a matter of luck
Or did something, somehow just get stuck in my way?
Is that all you can say?
