emmylou harris – ooh las vegas lyrics

(gram parsons/rik grech)

ooh, las vegas
ain’t no place for a poor boy like me
ooh, las vegas
ain’t no place for a poor boy like me
every time i hit your crystal city you know
you’re gonna make a wreck outta me

well, the first time i lose i drink whiskey
second time i lose i drink gin
third time i lose i drink anything
’cause i think i’m gonna win

ooh, las vegas
ain’t no place for a poor boy like me
ooh, las vegas
ain’t no place for a poor boy like me
every time i hit your crystal city you know
you’re gonna make a wreck outta me

well, the queen of spades is a friend of mine
the queen of hearts is a b*tch
someday when i clean up my mind
i’ll find out which is a which

ooh, las vegas
ain’t no place for a poor boy like me
ooh, las vegas
ain’t no place for a poor boy like me
every time i hit your crystal city you know
you’re gonna make a wreck outta me

well, i spend all night with the dealer
tryin’ to get ahead
spend all day at the holiday inn
tryin’ to get out of bed

ooh, las vegas
ain’t no place for a poor boy like me
ooh, las vegas
ain’t no place for a poor boy like me
every time i hit your crystal city you know
you’re gonna make a wreck outta me
