Stateline Blues


"Stateline Blues"

Fancy Dan, gamblin' man
Top hat of the peanut man
Talk about your pot of gold
With a silver linin'

Tumblin' dice, hit it twice
Boats and the flushes, they sure look nice
On a pot of gold with a silver linin'

State line give you hard times, stay too long
Goodbye, pretty women
I ain't stayin' on, come on

Get a hunch, bet a bunch
Come to gamble, better pack a lunch
For a pot of gold with a silver linin'

Less you bet when you stayin' in
The more you lose even when you win
On a pot of gold with a silver linin'

You don't know when to stop
Lady Luck, she gonna see you're taught
That there ain't no pot of gold and no silver linin'

Easy money can make you mad
Come too quick turn a good man bad
For a pot of gold with a silver linin'

Gamblin' man, Fancy Dan
Top hat of the peanut man
Talk about your pot of gold
In the silver linin'
