lyrics

Scratch Ticket

I've tried making it the hard way
it gets harder every year
i cried me a river
and floated downstream on my tears
i want just enough, i'm not asking for much
just a brass ring that i can touch

scratch ticket
take me away from here
scratch ticket i've got just enough
for two of you and beer
scratch ticket
i'm so broke and broken down
scratch ticket
come on and turn my luck around
turn my luck around

the landlord's come a-knockin'
so i'm pretending i'm not home
and there's so many debts
that i don't dare pick up the phone
i'm out of friends, i'm out of time
i'm on my way to being out of my mind

scratch ticket
take me away from here
scratch ticket i've got just enough
for two of you and beer
scratch ticket
i'm so broke and broken down
scratch ticket
come on and turn my luck

into lucky three
lemon, lemon lucky me
at least lady luck, she had the decency
to give me just another chance to buy a

scratch ticket
take me away from here
scratch ticket i've got just enough
for two of you and beer
scratch ticket
i'm so broke and broken down
scratch ticket
come on and turn my luck around
turn my luck around
turn my luck around
turn my luck around
