I came up the hard way
And fought with my back to the wall
Sometimes down to nothin'
But right now, babe, we've got it all
Looking back now
When it comes down to facing the truth
Ain't worth the powder
To blow me to hell without you

That's my Silver Eagle
And my name up in lights
And those big blue white diamonds
They can't keep me warm late at night
Here in the spotlight
My dreams have come true
But I ain't worth the powder
To blow me to hell without you

Well, you know if the time ever comes, babe
When it's down to just win, lose or draw
I don't Carewhat they take
They can take what they want to
As long as they leave you
'cause you're the most precious thing of all

Take my Silver Eagle
And my name up in lights
And those big blue diamonds
They can't keep me warm late at night
Here in the spotlight
My dreams have come true
But I ain't worth the powder
To blow me to hell without you
No I ain't worth the powder
To blow me to hell without you
