Cutting things fine

Does anyone care about anyone?
there but for some grace I do

If I decide to put it on red and let the lot of it ride
or deal with the wheel on its spin
the chances are that I won’t win
does anyone care about that?

And watching a Western with my badge and a vest on
doesn’t make me a deputy and counting the drops in the clouds in the sky trying to figure out why the ocean’s so deep makes me
weep in frustration

back to the pack
a black King and a Jack,
please
give me a Queen for a run.
