Bet on the Blues (Paxton)
Copyright 1975 Accabonac Music

Five hundred'll buy you a stack. Bet it on the red or the black and you'll
Lose, bet on the blues.
You tell me you're a gambling man.
Try to beat the house if you can and you lose, bet on the blues.
If you're looking to get an inside slant,
If you're looking for something so good you can't refuse, bet on the blues.
Find a man who thinks he's over the hump,
I'm here to tell you he's a kind of a chump you can use, bet on the blues, bet
On the blues.

Lucky old sun is shining today. Even money says you'll be paying some dues, bet
On the blues.
You say you found your lady fair.
Eight to five she's wearing her traveling shoes, bet on the blues.
Five hundred'll buy you a stack. Bet it on the red or the black and you'll
Lose, bet on the blues.
You tell me you're a gambling man.
Try to beat the house if you can and you lose, bet on the blues.
If you're looking to get an inside slant,
If you're looking for something so good you can't refuse, bet on the blues, bet
On the blues,
Bet on the blues, bet on the blues, bet on the blues.
