Blue Cheer – Ace In The Hold lyrics

(Dickie Peterson)

Cheater, cheater, I believe
You got an ace up your sleeve
But if you don't take the load that way
Lord, you're gonna have to leave.

Ride on by, Oh, snake eye
We all got to pay our toll
But you got much too high
And you got to go.

I said I, understand
Said I-I-I, I-I-I
Got an ace in the hole.

Yeah, how, my oh my
Can't find my way home
Yeah we're both alike, you and I
We got all night long, no.

Now don't you cry, you opened my eyes
And make'em pay the toll, baby
Don't you cry, you're much too high
And we got to go.

I said I, understand
Said I-I-I, I-I-I
Got an ace in the hole
Oh, sing it with me, babe, oow!

I said everything's down, yeah high roller
Gotta gotta take a stand
You better stop and check yourself
Cause you're talking to a hell of a man.

Stop baby, stop, turn around
Drop that gun in your hand
Got something to say to you, baby
And I, I'll bet you'll understand.

Baby I, understand
Said I-I-I, I-I-I
Got an ace in the hole.

That's right, baby, That's why you best be movin' on
You better say bye, bye, baby, that's right, whoo-oo
Yeah, I tell you to leave, yeh-yeah
Gotta go, go baby, baby, baby you better, far from me, oh babe, Oh yeah.
