"Reno Nevada" as written by and Richard Farina....
It's a long long way down to Reno, Nevada
It's a long long way to your home
And the change in your pocket, it's beginning to grumble
And you reap just about what you sow

You can walk down the street, press your face in a window
Or go on fooling around
You can work night and day and take a chance on promotion
Or fall through a hole in the ground

Now there ain't no game like the game that you're playing
When you've got a little something to lose
And there ain't no time like the time that you're wasting
And you waste just about what you choose

There's a man at the table, you know he's been able
To return all the odds that you lay
But you can't feed your hunger, and you ain't gettin younger
And your tongue, it's got nothing to say

And it's a long long way down to Reno, Nevada
It's a long long way to your home
And the ground underneath you is beginning to tremble
And the sky up above you has grown

There's a time to be moving, a time to be groovin
A time to climb up the wall
But the odds they double, and it ain't worth the trouble
And you never goin nowhere alone

And it's a long long way down to Reno, Nevada
And it's a long long way to your home
And the ground underneath you is beginning to tremble
And the sky up above you has grown

There's a man at the table, you know he's been able
To return all the odds that you lay
But you can't feed your hunger, and you ain't gettin younger
And your tongue, it's got nothing to say
