about

Aces & Eights is a story about a gambler.

lyrics

I spent all my mercy on one last dram,
you wanna know just where I am?
I'm where I made her poor heart cry,
he had the king and I had the ace,
but he threw two more right in my face,
took my last nickle, now I'm bound to die.

I was young when I learned the art,
he was an old man with no heart,
he saw that I was just out on a spree,
I played well, fell for his spell,
now god forgive me cause I'm going to hell,
all the same it's just the end of me

I thought I was the finest wine,
but I find I'm no better than a sugar shine,
no need to wonder what my friends will think,
I've been gone now for a while,
never the type to lack a smile,
but all the same this ship is gonna sink.

I spent all my mercy on one last dram,
you wanna know just where I am?
I'm where I made her poor heart cry,
he had the king and I had the ace,
but he threw two more right in my face,
took my last nickle, now I'm bound to die.

well come on lord shine down on me,
this ain't the way it's meant to be,
don't you know by now a man can only try?
death take pity and preacher pray,
I got one more word to say,
ain't time for that word to be goodbye.
