lyrics

I got into a staring contest with a can of pepsi
it's the kind of thing that always happening to poor me
i play games that i can't win

i played a round of euchre with a lowsy, cheatin, hoosier
he was pulling cards from his sleeve, laughing at poor me
I play games that I can't win

i picked my numbers and i drew my cards
i played around in those dirty dive bars
i waited on my lucky strike
and i can't count the powerball tickets i bought for the lottery that is my sorry life

i woke up and i saw your face
you were lying in the same place
i was holding onto something
you were letting go of everything
i play games that i can't win

i picked my numbers and i drew my cards
i played around in those dirty dive bars
i waited on my lucky strike
and i can't count the powerball tickets i bought for the lottery that is my sorry life

i woke up and i saw your face
you were lying in the same place
i was holding onto something
you were letting go of everything
