Pardon me if I'm leaving in a hurry, can't you see
There's too much to lose for me to stay around?
I've played your game, obeyed your rules, the best that I know how
Gonna get out while the game don't get me down

It's been a long, long day and now it's gone, gone
I won't see you again before the dawn
There's too much to lose for me to stay around
So I'll just cash in the chips and leave this town

Pardon me if I don't turn back or even say goodbye
I surely have enjoyed your cup of tea
Got no more time to gamble on a thing that ain't too sure
And the dust cloud on the edge of town is me

If you ever feel that you should want to get in touch somehow
Forget it, that's all in yesterday
Forgiving is to lovers as trusting is to fools
And of losing there is nothing I can say

It's been a long, long day and now it's gone, gone
I won't see you again before the dawn
There's too much to lose for me to stay around
So I'll just cash in the chips and leave this town

It's been a long, long day and now it's gone, gone
I won't see you again before the dawn
There's too much to lose for me to stay around
So I'll just cash in the chips and leave this town
