"Get Up John" as written by and Bill Monroe....
I never thought I'd need you
But now I find I'm wrong
Come on back, sweet mama
Back where you belong

I've rambled over town
To find that I can't win
Come on back and pick me up again

Now, if I lose
(If I lose)
Let me lose
(Let me lose)
I don't care
(I don't care)

How much I lose
If I lose a hundred dollars
While I'm tryin' to win a dime?
My baby, she's got money all the time

Of all the other gals I've known
There's none to take your place
'Cause when I get into a jam
They just ain't in the race

So, now that you're back here
Let's take another round
With you here by my side
Babe, the deal just can't go down

Now, if I lose
(If I lose)
Let me lose
(Let me lose)
I don't care
(I don't care)

How much I lose
If I lose a hundred dollars
While I'm tryin' to win a dime?
My baby, she's got money all the time

Now, if I lose
(If I lose)
Let me lose
(Let me lose)
I don't care
(I don't care)

How much I lose
If I lose a hundred dollars
While I'm tryin' to win a dime?
My baby, she's got money all the time
