Why gamble in Vegas when I gamble every day as a musician...

ONE WIN
Words and music by Patrick Fleming, Jr.

I know I’m a long shot
Take a look this is all I’ve got
I guess it’s time to throw it all in the pot
And take my chances

I’ve been called an also-ran
But I’m doing the best that I can
And I know that I’ll be damned
If I don’t take my chances

I’ve never been a betting kind
But I’ve been putting my life on the line
Over and over again

I’m just One Win from a winning streak
I’m just One Win from making ends meet
One Win Away from losing my losing days

Right now it’s either sink or swim
No time to let it do me in
You know I feel so close to drownin’
So, I’ll take my chances

One turn of a friendly card
Then I won’t have to work so hard
Lord know I’ve come too far
To not take these chances

I’ve never been a betting kind
But I’ve been putting my life on the line
Over and over again

I’m just One Win from a winning streak
I’m just One Win from making ends meet
One Win Away from losing my losing days
I’m just One Win from paying the bills
I’m just One Win from that house on the hill
One Win Away from losing my losing days

Pretty soon my ship is gonna come in
Then I’m gonna stop my running
You can bet I’ll be lying in the sun and
Playing my guitar

(Solo)

I know I’m a long shot
Take a look this is all I’ve got
I guess it’s time to throw it all in the pot
And I’ll take my chances…

I’m just One Win from a winning streak
I’m just One Win from making ends meet
One Win Away from losing my losing days
I’m just One Win from paying the bills
I’m just One Win from that house on the hill
One Win Away from losing my losing days

One Win Away from losing my losing days …
