You Can't Win  Bob Woodruff

written by: Bob Woodruff
performed by:Bob Woodruff on "Dreams and Saturday Nights"
1.[G]It doesn't start it j[C]ust begins
W[D]ith a gun and a l[G]iquor store
Like every thief I kn[C]ow I can't win
I j[D]ust don't know wh[G]en or how
I pulled a job in Tennessee
A little bank with a big score
Shot a guy who didn't believe me
He never had a prayer
C.[C]If I get c[D]aught I don't m[G]ind
[C]I stole the m[D]oney nearly lost my m[G]ind
[C]I can't take b[D]ack the things I d[Em]id
[C]You can play the g[D]ame but you can't w[G]in
2.Me and my wife Barbara Jean
Went on a spree in Nevada
Man she could drive she could go like the breeze
She got us out of there
Headed south to New Orleans
She couldn't live like an outlaw
Said goodbye on a tropical beach
The sun in her pretty hair
Repeat Chorus
3.Prisons are built with stones of law
Brothels with bricks of religin
I've been in both and I know that I saw
God answers a sinner's prayers
We played a game we couldn't win
To the end to the utmost
Took a chance threw caution to the wind
We simply didn't care
repeat Chorus
