"That's What I Get" as written by Raul Malo and Chuck Mead....
Well it's been years since I made all the rounds
And closed up all the honky tonks in town
I just got used to being on my own
Waiting for no one to call my own

But now the hand of fate has laid a card on me
A winning hand I didn't wanna see
No one I could blame, I wanted in this game
But now I'm right back where I never thought I'd be

That's what I get for falling once again
You made me forget with no regrets what I knew back then
Well I thought I knew it all, I swore I'd never fall
But here I go again that's what I get

Now I resign myself to you and I don't care
You make me feel like I'm a millionaire
And because of you I gave that wheel a spin
Even though I know the house will always win

And now the hand of fate has laid a card on me
A winning hand I didn't wanna see
No one I could blame, I wanted in this game
But now I'm right back where I never thought I'd be

And that's what I get for falling once again
You made me forget with no regrets what I knew back then
Now well I thought I knew it all, I swore I'd never fall
But here I go again that's what I get

Well I thought I knew it all, I swore I'd never fall
But here I go again that's what I get
