Once or twice I heard you bid Once or twice Were you wondering was the gamble worth the price Pack it in, I heard you did Pack it in Was it hard to fold a hand you knew you could win So lately you've been hiding It was somewhere in the news And I'm still at these races With my ticket stubs and my blues And a voice calls out the numbers And it sometimes mentions mine And I feel like I've been working overtime Overtime, I've lost my fire Overtime Always playin' one more hand for one more dime Slowin' down I'm gettin' tired Slowin' down And I envy you the valley that you've found 'Cause I'm midway down the midway Slowin' down, down, down, © 1967 Siquomb Publishing Corp.
