Turnpike Troubadours – Pay No Rent lyrics

I hear the clicking of the dominoes
You shaking up a game
And if we lose a hand I bet I'll know just who's to blame
But if we hear 21
If we make that call
I better sit here in my chair just feeling ten feet tall

And we're caught up in the riff-raff
Circling 'round the sun
It takes a lot of blood and tears just to really love someone
But when it comes back around
That's heaven on earth
You never know till the end my friend
What your love is really worth

Are you cracking jokes with the common folks?
Are you serving to the well-to-do?
I traveled round and I ain't found nobody quite like you
And is all this living meant to be or a happy accident?
But in my heart you pay no rent
Well in my heart you pay no rent

I hear the crackle of a campfire
You're howling at the moon
We all know that you gotta go but does it have to be so soon
Bet somebody' yelling last call
I hope you get some rest
I hope you found everything that you wanted
In the place you love the best

Are you cracking jokes with the common folks?
Are you serving to the well-to-do?
I traveled round and I ain't found nobody quite like you
And is all this living meant to be or a happy accident?
But in my heart you pay no rent
Well in my heart you pay no rent

Now we're shaking up the dominoes
Beneath the neon light
Knowing anybody else out there couldn't put up a better fight
But the fighting time's over
And it's all gone
You pick up the pieces and we try to carry on

Are you cracking jokes with the common folks?
Are you serving to the well-to-do?
Well I traveled round and I ain't found nobody quite like you
And is all this living meant to be or a happy accident?
But in my heart you pay no rent
Don't cost you nothing not a single cent
Time together well was time well spent
In my heart you pay no rent
In my heart you pay no rent
