lyrics

we got drunk and walked out the door
stumbled down to the corner store
the wine was cheap and the cigarettes broke
but it was all I could afford

our red wine lips well they touched that night
you woke that morning with sun in your eyes
and I knew right then that you’d be my wife
if I played my cards just right

something about you says
roll that dice, place that bet
I don't have much to lose
do you find yourself gambling on me too?

but Things got tough when the rivers froze
I lost my job when the factory closed
I sold my car for the rent we owed
and you never questioned why

our red wine lips well the talked all night
and we fought that cold by the candle light
I knew right then you’d be the love of my life
if I played my cards just right

something about you says
roll that dice, place that bet
I don't have much to lose
do you find yourself gambling on me too?

your mother called on the 4th of July
and over fireworks said your father died
but I just stood there and watched you cry
and called a car to catch the train

your red wine lips spoke the words of god
whispered voice to the ones you lost
and I felt guilty falling deep in love
as I knelt beneath the cross

something about you says
roll that dice, place that bet
I don't have much to lose
do you find yourself gambling on me too?
