Back in the Game

That town is full of corpses and twice-broke dreams
preacher’s daughter makes a living outta makin’ ya feel ashamed
I folded every losing hand and then that cowboy came
left me drinking Tequila with my pigeon friends in the pouring rain
Out on the highway back out on the road
I felt something open up inside when I let you go
I pulled into Texas beneath my heavy load
I felt something open up inside when I let you go

Hey dealer

I’m back in the game
leave them cards where they lay
I don’t need to win
I’m just happy to play
Everything is different now
but I’m still the same
I wouldn’t cash those chips in yet
’cause I’m back in the game

I’m in a land of no winter but it’s getting dark
I work 6 days out of 7 and nurse my broken heart
There’s cold beer and good music down at Ginny’s bar
and 2000 smiling girls out on the boulevard

Hey ladies

I’m back in the game
throwin’ dice down
My big losing streak
it’s a turnin’ around
Everything is different now
but I’m still the same
I wouldn’t cash those chips in yet
’cause I’m back in the game

With the spring there’ll come the rain but there’ll be longer days
maybe some faces around the table sayin “we’re so glad you came”
I hope I’ll be turnin towards after all that turnin away
win or lose I hope I’ll always find the strength to say

Hey dealer

I’m back in the game
leave them cards where they lay
I don’t need to win
but that’d be nice for a change
After all that we’ve been through
how could you doubt my name?
I’d hold off on that Victory dance
’cause I’m back in the game
