WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO LOSE (Tom T. Hall) Tom T. Hall - 1978 Well, I've been in some bars where they serve it in big silver goblets And pewter and brass I've been in some joints where they serve it in paper cups And maybe an old water glass But it's all the same in the old drinkin' game When you drink and you try to forget One woman who loved you and another who didn't And I ain't seen one winner yet What'a you got to lose What'a you got to lose Try women and booze and the cigarette blues What'a you got to lose Well, I've been in some towns with some high rollin' heavies And I know some unknowns and stars The big equalizer is a good drink of liquor When they all belly up to the bar Some cry for fame, some cry for money And some people reach for the skies But when a honky tonk heart starts cryin' for a honky tonk You can't get a tear in edgewise What'a you got to lose What'a you got to lose Try women and booze and the cigarette blues What'a you got to lose Now, an old country boy just can't sit on the porch And watch while the world's goin' by Now he's got to be part of some social endeavour So he gets him a jug and he tries He'll play that old jukebox and chase them old hides 'Bout daylight come to in his room When that sun's comin' up he's 'bout halfway to hell About halfway back home around noon What'a you got to lose What'a you got to lose Try women and booze and the cigarette blues What'a you got to lose What'a you got to lose What'a you got to lose Try women and booze and the cigarette blues What'a you got to lose (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2018)
