A Numbers Game


Rick Parnell


 


Highway 17 or 41


Colt 45 vs a tommy gun


Sweet 16 turning 21


Day at the beach or a midnight run


 


Smoke that cigarette and roll the dice


count the money - count it twice


if  I had nickel for each bit of bad advice


Give it away to make things right 


 


Cause I'm without you in this numbers game


Each mile  seems more insane


 


snakes and ladders or a roulette wheel


old friends and lovers - no time to steal


TV channels without sex appeal


the price is right, let's make a deal


 


Without you in a numbers game


 


Rented room and a rental car


Tiny bottles in a hotel bar


Would you rather be rich or be a star


Either way it's a numbers game


 


(guitar solo)


 


Without you in a numbers game


Count the miles driving me insane


 


The fresh face in your mirror


The things you say when you want me nearer


Makes me ask  "what am I doing here?"


Another shot to deny my fear


 


Fall leaves in a swimming pool


making music with power tools


living what I never learned in school


count myself on this ship of fools


 


It's a numbers game


Each mile gets more inane


 


Stuck without you in a numbers game


Count the milest driving me insane


 


(guitar solo)
