This was recorded with guitars tuned to E-B-E-E-B-E from a suggestion made many years ago by Rob Fetters (of the Bears, Psychodots). Not to shill, but the book "Shortcuts to Hit Songwriting" by Robin Frederick really helped with some fun approaches I used to create the lyrics and title.


We hit the jackpot for a while
We were inseparable - I loved her winning smile
But lately she's been cold as ice
She won't answer calls, and I'm afraid to roll the dice
I can't let it ride

I'm breaking up with Lady Luck
She's foolin' around, I'm calling her bluff
(So) lose or win I'm going all in
I'm breaking up with Lady Luck

When stakes were high I dropped my guard
She was my queen - I thought our love was in the cards
Now I can see I was naive
Played what I was dealt while she kept aces up her sleeve
I still can't believe

I wish I was wrong
And we could work it out
'Cause I've really been missing you lately
But when the odds are long and the chips are down
You're never around when I need you baby
