Billy Joe Shaver – Checkers And Chess lyrics

[Chorus:]
I'm playing Checkers while they're playing Chess
They make the big moves and make me a little less
Even when I win, beat the pants off of the best
I'm still playing Checkers while they're playing Chess

[Verse:]
I've learned all the rules of the game
Fast way I play 'em when I lose 'em just the same
Nothing's fair in this world of blind chance
A rich man takes the money, the old man takes the blame

[Chorus:]
I'm playing Checkers while they're playing Chess
They make the big moves and make me a little less
Even when I win, beat the pants off of the best
I'm still playing Checkers while they're playing Chess

[Instrumental]

[Verse 2:]
The day were born where all? Old
Some cuts from the cloth straight from the king's robe
The rest of us can't even be pawn
But we wear soldier's uniforms, dying for their?

[Chorus:]
I'm playing Checkers while they're playing Chess
They make the big moves and make me a little less
Even when I win, beat the pants off of the best
I'm still playing Checkers while they're playing Chess
