It?s not as if I didn?t know better, her innocent look and a scented letter
It looked like love but it felt like a memory
Sometimes a young girl wants a ticket out
and a gambler on a roll looks good no doubt
But if you think you?re winnin? you don?t even know the game you?re in

Chorus:
It?s read ?em and weep, it?s a sad old song
You take your chances just the same
Don?t it serve me right how it all went wrong
Bettin? on a hard luck heart in a heartbreak game
Bettin? on a hard luck heart in a heartbreak game

It?s not as if she never loved me, but times get rough and the rooms get lonely
And a girl learns fast that there?s a lot of different things called love
I got burned bad but I?m still in this game
It?s a dirty deal but nobody?s to blame
The odds are good lady luck will be back again

Chorus

Bridge:
Sometimes you gotta bet your aces low
Sometimes you gotta let a good hand go

Chorus 2x

Bettin? on a hard luck heart in a heartbreak game
