losing hand lyrics – paul butterfield blues band

i’m gambling on your loving, babe
you gave a losing hand
yeah, i’m gambling on your loving
babe, got nothing but a losing hand
yeah, the way you treat me, babe
oh, it’s like the shifting desert sand

thought i’d be your king, baby
yeah, and you would be my queen
baby, i thought i’d be your king
baby, yeah, and you would be my queen
ah, but you dealt me for your joker
babe, um, when i thought you’d be the loser’s queen
what’d you be to that, babe?

yeah, the way you treat me, babe
i don’t believe i’ll ever understand
the way you treat me babe
i don’t think i’ll ever understand
ah, the waves keep changing, baby
just like the shifting desert sand

gambling on your loving, baby, got a losing hand, yeah, babe
you gave me nothing but a losing hand, yeah, yeah
the way you treat me, babe, ah, yeah, yeah, yeah, baby, i’ll never understand
yeah, yeah
