You Can't Win
Bob Woodruff
CD: Dreams and Saturday Nights

Verse One:
G          D        C           D
It doesn't start it just begins
G      D         C             D
With a gun and a liquor store
G          D       C            D
Like every thief I know I can't win
C                              D
Just don't know when or where
G          D      C         D
I pulled a job in Tennessee
G        D           C          D
A little bank with a big score
G      D       C        D      C                      D
Shot a guy who didn't believe, he never had a prayer

chorus:
C        D               G
If I get caught, I don't mind
C           D                     G
I stole the money, nearly lost my mind
C            D                 Em
I can't take back the things I did
C                D                  G
You can play the game but you can't win

Verse Two:
G         D     C          D G         D          C    D
Me and my wife, Barbara Jean went on a spree in Nevada
G             D                C                  D
Man she could drive, she could go like the breeze
C                       D
She got us outta there
G      D            C      D G            D            C      D
Headed south to New Orleans, she couldn't live like an outlaw
G        D        C         D     C                       D
Said goodbye on a tropical beach, sun in her pretty hair

Chorus:
C        D               G
If I get caught, I don't mind
C           D                     G
I stole the money, nearly lost my mind
C            D                 Em
I can't take back the things I did
C                D                  G
You can play the game but you can't win

Instrumental (like a verse)

Verse Three:
G           D          C              D
Prisons are built with stones of law
G             D           C       D
Brothels with bricks of religion
G            D          C           D
I've been in both and I know that I saw
C                     D
God answer a sinner's prayers
G           D       C          D G      D          C      D
We played a game we couldn't win to the end to the utmost
G         D             C              D
We took a chance, threw caution to the wind,
C                D
We simply didn't care

Chorus:
C        D               G
If I get caught, I don't mind
C           D                     G
I stole the money, nearly lost my mind
C            D                 Em
I can't take back the things I did
C                D                  G
You can play the game but you can't win
C                D                  G
You can play the game but you can't win
