lyrics

Verse 1
In the morning when I rise
Wipe the sleep out of my eyes,
As I dress you know I grab my favorite gun.
And how my body aches
And my hands they got the shakes
Pull a pint and that's how my day's begun.

Verse 2
To the race track I did go
With a pocket full of dough,
and my girl, you know she is the perfect one.
Laid my money, one, two, three,
It was a big surprise for me,
Round that track it came and sho nuff we had won.

Chorus
Yes, yes, yes, sho nuff we had won.
And I became a favorite son,
And I went spending my money night and day.
I bought a brand new ride.
From the girls I did not hide,
It seemed good luck had come along to stay!

But later on it's tough, you see?
Is someone following me?
On the outskirts, I break into a run.
Running like it's for my life
Or runnin from an angry wife
Keep yo' bread 'cause that's how the West was won.

Chorus
Yes, yes, yes, sho nuff we had won.
And I became a favorite son,
And I went spending my money night and day.
I bought a brand new ride.
From the girls I did not hide,
It seemed good luck had come along to stay!

But later on it's tough, you see?
Is someone following me?
On the outskirts, I break into a run.
When you live a gambler's life.
Pack a pistol or a knife
Some day will come along,
and sho nuff, you'll have won.
