Pardon me if I'm leaving in a hurry
Can't you see
There's too much to lose for me to stay around

I've played your game obeyed your rules
The best that I know how
Gonna get out while the game don't get me down

It's been a long long day and now it's gone gone
I won't see you again before dawn
There's too much to lose for me to stay around
So I'll just cash in the chips and leave this town

Pardon me if I don't turn back or even say goodbye
I surely have enjoyed your cup of tea
Got no more time to gamble on a thing that ain't too sure
And the dust-cloud on the edge on town is me

If you ever feel that you should want to get in touch somehow
Forget it - that's all in yesterday.
Forgiving is to lovers as trusting is to fools
And of losing there is nothing I can say

It's been a long long day and now it's gone gone
I won't see you again before dawn
There's too much to lose for me to stay around
So I'll just cash in the chips and leave this town

It's been a long long day and now it's gone gone
I won't see you again before dawn
There's too much to loose for me to stay around
So I'll just cash in the chips and leave this town

Well I'll just cash in the chips and leave this town
