well i drank myself to sleep again
drank myself to sleep again last night
and i woke up in a stranger's arms
i woke up with a stranger's arms holding me tight
i thought of you and me
and what it is we used to be

and if i was a betting man
i'd throw everything i had on you
i ain't a betting man
god only knows i'm a betting man

you were running through my mind like a steamboat
on a mississippi riverbed
you were running through my mind like a steamboat
on a mississippi riverbed

those words you said
they cut me deep like a lock blade knife
they cut me to the bone
you can only cut a man so deep
'fore he's gonna wash his hands
i wash my hands
of you and me
and what it is we used to be

and if i was a betting man
i'd throw everything i had on you
i ain't a betting man
god only knows i'm a betting man

you were running through my mind like a steamboat
on a mississippi riverbed
you were running through my mind like a steamboat
on a mississippi riverbed
