Rory Gallagher – Walk On The Hot Coals lyrics

Well I lost my shirt in a card game in which I never had a chance
Well I lost my shirt in a card game at which I never had a chance
The deck was marked, the game was rigged, you could not tell at a glance

Well I lost my job at the weekend...

Well I walk on hot coals sleep on a bed of nails
Walk on thin ice, skate on razor blades
Got my little girl beside me, no matter what else fails

Well I spent it all down at the racetrack...
Gonna throw away my lucky penny...

Well I walk on hot coals sleep on a bed of nails
Walk on thin ice, skate on razor blades
Got my little girl beside me, no matter what else fails
