"Blackjack" as written by and Ray Charles....
Ah, let me tell you people
About this blackjack game
It's caused me nothing but trouble
And I've only myself to blame

Hey-hey, hey, yeah
How unlucky can one man be?
Well, every quarter I get, now
Lord, blackjack takes it away from me

My friends don't come around me
Because I've been so blind
I can't even borrow a nickel
Now I've almost lost my mind

Hey-hey hey, yeah
How unlucky can one man be?
Well, every quarter I get
Lord, blackjack takes it away from me

I sat there with two tens
I thought I'd have some fun
The dealer hit sixteen with a five
Just enough to make twenty-one

Hey-hey hey, yeah, yeah
How unlucky can one man be?
Well, every quarter I get
Yeah, blackjack takes it away from me
