A Good Run Of Bad Luck – Clint Black

A high roller even when the chips are down
To win her over, I’d seen the tables turn around
She’s ten the hard way, I can feel it in my bones
She’ll be makin’ my day and not another night alone
‘Til it’s time for a windfall and not a single minute too soon
I’ve been too long overdue, now I’m gonna shoot the moon

I’d bet it all on a good run of bad luck
Seven come eleven and she could be mine
Luck be a lady, and I’m gonna find love comin’ on the bottom line

I’ve been to the table, and I’ve lost it all before
I’m willin’ and able, always comin’ back for more
Squeezin’ out a thin dime ’til there’s no one hanging on my arm
I’ve gambled on a third time, a fool will tell you it’s a charm
If I’m bettin’ on a loser, I’m gonna have a devil to pay
But it’s the only game I know to play, it doesn’t matter anyway

I’d bet it all on a good run of bad luck
Seven come eleven and she could be mine
Luck be a lady, and I’m gonna find love comin’ on the bottom line
I’d bet it all on a good run of bad luck
Seven come eleven and she could be mine
Luck be a lady, and I’m gonna find love comin’ on the bottom line

Half Way Up – Clint Black

I’ve seen it going around when you get bad news
Thinking that you found a darker shade of blues
Looking for the light and it’s a long way back
You know without a fight you’re gonna fade to black

Never was a man that ever felt this way
One who couldn’t live to see another day
Hard times seem to have the corner on you
But you can rise from the ashes too

When I’m on my knees and everything has gotten me beat
And even I believe I’m never gonna find my feet
Two ways you can go you can ask anybody around
One man’s half way up is another man’s half way down

Now you may decide it’s a losing game
Even in your stride you’re gonna call it lame
Getting one leg up when it’s said and done
Is the hardest part no matter how you run

If you can walk away from a crash and burn
You’ll appreciate every step you earn
And if you feel the ground is gaining on you
You’re already bound to take a different view

When I’m on my knees and everything has gotten me beat
And even I believe I’m never gonna find my feet
Two ways you can go you can ask anybody around
One man’s half way up is another man’s half way down

One man’s ceiling is another man’s floor
One man’s wall could be another man’s door
One man’s smile is another man’s frown
And there are miles of half way up or half way down

Half The Man – Clint Black

She’s every reason I take so much work on
And every reason I take so much time at home
And every single reason why I’m so much stronger
And every reason I could never be alone

Look at me, you’ll see who I’ve found
I’m beside myself whenever she’s around
Without her, you’d see a different man
It’s what she makes of me, she’s half the man I am

When the rivers all run dry, she finds the water
And when everything is dark, she finds the light
And when it’s time to fly, she’s flying with me
With her on the wing, we balance out just right

Look at me, you’ll see who I’ve found
I’m beside myself whenever she’s around
Without her, you’d see a different man
It’s what she makes of me, she’s half the man I am
I’m what she’s made of me, she’s half the man I am

Cadillac Jack Favor – Clint Black

He’s Cadillac Jack Favor and the name rings true
If he’s got a ride any stranger would too
The one bad habit that his Ponder would say
Is sure gonna put him through the trials one day
And that’s just what happened he took pity on two men
Heading down to Louisiana, he stopped and let them in
And the thanks he did for helping them
Would make him wish he was busting broncs again

He dropped them off in Bossieer City where they met up with a man
That vagabond commitee barely even had a plan
It was just a simple robbery turned double homicide
They got away with murder it’d be someone else’s hide

Almost two years come and gone they never solved that crime
‘Til they found one of our vagabonds already doing time
When that jailbird started singing they all knew the words were wrong
But the sheriff and the DA and the judge all sang along
They pinned it on Jack Favor, gave him life without parole
Gave Jack’s freedom to the jailbird, payment on the lies he told
Just so happens that election year everybody payed out at the polls

Cadillac’s no fallen hero and he’s never gonna break
When it comes to prison rodeo, there’ll be no easy eight
And if you want the definition of the picture-perfect frame
It’d be in the dictionary underneath Jack Favor’s name

Cadillac’s no fallen hero and he’s never gonna break
When it comes to prison rodeo, there’s still no easy eight
And if you want the definition of the picture-perfect frame
It’d be in the dictionary underneath Jack Favor’s name

Yeah, it’s the world’s most crooked picture and when it comes to being framed
Cadillac Jack Favor should be in the hall of fame

A Better Man – Clint Black

What do you say when it’s over
I don’t know if I should say anything at all
One day we’re rollin’ in the clover
Next thing you know we take the fall

Still, I think about the years since I first met you
And the way it might have been without you here
And I don’t know if words from me can still upset you
But I’ve just gotta make this memory stand clear

I know I’m leavin’ here a better man
For knowin’ you this way
Things I couldn’t do before, now I think I can
And I’m leavin here a better man

I guess I always knew I couldn’t hold you
But I’d never be the one to set you free
Just like some old nursery rhyme your mama told you
You still believe in some old meant-to-be

Still I’m leavin’ here a better man
For knowin’ you this way
Things I couldn’t do before, now I think I can
And I’m leavin’ here a better man

Yes I’m leavin’ here a better man
For knowin’ you this way
Things I couldn’t do before, now I know I can
And I’m leavin’ here a better man

Yes I’m leavin’ here a better man
