It's not as if she never loved me, But times get rough and the rooms get lonely, And a girl learns fast, 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, If the odds are good lady luck will be back again.

Am / C / |G / / / | Sometimes you gotta bet your aces low, Am / C / |D / / - | Sometimes you gotta let a good hand go.

Bettin' on a hard luck heart in a heartbreak game.
