House Of Cards

(Rachel Harrington)
February 15, 2011
Rachel Harrington & Evan Brubaker

I ain’t about to start preaching to the saved
I ain’t about to count the many hands I’ve played
I ain’t about to be taken by a fool
I ain’t about to start playing by no rules

Been along time coming
House of cards coming down

I ain’t about to let the dealer play my hand
I ain’t about to let the banker hold my land
I ain’t about to call a bet that I could steal
I ain’t about to spoil a good drink with a meal 

Been a long time coming
House of cards coming down 

Well Dutch said it would be easy
But we turned the river and I got played

He was a man of muscle was a man of means
Was a dead man walking with a fistful of queens
I bet the farm I did not have to lose
He laid his hand down to bad news

Been a long time coming, House of cards coming down
