Em Am B7 (all throughout)

The crop this year was mighty fine
So why not take it down the line
And Buddy, he can't drop the dime
If he doesn't know what Frankie sold you
Buddy, he is living cool
In West LA, he knows it too
The poker game is by the pool
Let's break the reins that try to hold you
Split the deck, look inside
Cut the cards and skin the hide
And deal em out with a vicious pride
And soften up the clay that molds you
Buddy, he is bluffing crude
He doesn't know your latitude
The mind-expanding things you do
To break the reins that try to hold you!

And buddy will play to win,
But now the truth is kicking in
You look him in the eyes and grin
The answers scare him silly, know this
Hearts and diamonds in your hand
The bloody red you understand
They swirl around at your command
Let's beat the man who thinks he owns us!
Sweaty brow, itching limbs
You can fold your hand and have a swim
But Buddy, he would take the win
You'll not provide the square his moment
Full house on the river flip
Queens and aces, get a grip
Just keep it cool with witty quips
And break the reins that Buddy sold you!

Split the deck, look inside
Cut the cards and skin the hide
And deal em out with a vicious pride
And soften up the clay that molds you
Buddy, he is bluffing crude
He doesn't know your latitude
The mind-expanding things you do
To break the reins that try to hold you!
Ante up, stare him down
The spirit of this desert town
Is coursing through your body now
It's all or nothing, Buddy knows this
Go all in and call his hand
The queens and aces take the land
The truth today, it beat the man
You broke the reins that tried to hold you!
