Heartbreak Game
Written by Randy Handley & Tim O'Brien


Chords

Song

1.

It's not as if I didn't know better,
Her innocent look and a scented letter,
It looked like love but it felt like a memory,
Sometimes a young girl wants a ticket out,
And a gambler on a roll looks good no doubt,
But if you think you're winnin'
You don't even know the game you're in.

chorus:

It's read 'em and weep, it's a sad old song,
You take your chances just the same,
Don't it serve me right how it all went wrong,
Bettin' on a hard luck heart in a heartbreak game,
Bettin' on a hard luck heart in a heartbreak game.

2.

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.

chorus:

bridge:

Sometimes you gotta bet your aces low,
Sometimes you gotta let a good hand go.

chorus:

(x2)

coda:

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