From the album "The Fitzgerald"
Lyrics transcribed from the liner notes


Casino six nights a week
Drinking whiskey and cokes and gambling
Only home on nights when his stomach would burn
He'd lay in the dark, drink peppermint schnapps and wait it out

His sister called at 4am and said there was an emergency
And that they should meet at the Gold and Silver
He saw her in the parking lot her kid sitting in the back seat
"Aren't you gonna let her in?" he asked
"It's an emergency," she said and left her in the car
Casino lights they only bring darkness to the night

They sat at a booth and she said, "We're leaving tonight."
Then she broke down and cried
"How long have you been up?" he asked
"I can't remember," was all she said and took all the money from her purse, set it on the table, and got up and left
Casino lights they only bring darkness to the night

He walked down the street as the sun began to rise and he saw the kid following him dragging a suitcase by a piece of rope
