The rest of the words:

I followed with the sideshows
to another town
And I found you in a trailer on the
camping grounds
You were betting on some lover you were
shaking up the dice
And I thought I saw you cheating
once or twice
Once or twice, I heard your 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 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, down
