FAIR TO EVEN ODDS (Robert Hunter / Pete Sears) Pete Sears How long, Jack, till we get to Singapore? How long, Joe, did we sign on for? Better keep bailing while the rain pours down The day crews sleeping and the night crews drowned Fair to even odds, I wager Fair to even odds, I lay If we make it till the sunrise We can make it through the day Caught at the border running forty-fives (note 1) A shot in the back could mean goodbye You know I have been shot before And I didn't lay down and die, no Fair to even odds, I wager Fair to even odds, I give Fair to even I recover Fair to even odds I live Lie around and clench my teeth (note 1) Until my jaws are sore Maybe give up cigarettes Till my lungs don't hurt no more Shot in the back and drawing flies Flat on my belly with bloodshot eyes This is the life I love the best Devil be welcome to the rest Fair to even odds, I wager (note 1) Fair to even I adore Away, away, go from my window Don't you bother me no more Just how far is this day risen? Move my head so I can see Hear the hot sweet winds of heaven Thick and red as blood to me Fair to even odds, I wager Fair to even odds, I lay If I make it till the sunrise I can make it through the day I can hear the hangman's hornpipe Blowing high and low and strong Fare to even odds, dear Annie (note 2) Play no sweeter when I'm gone Notes (1) Pete Sears didn't sing these verses. (2) Hunter spells it "Fare to even odds ..."
