Ooh Las Vegas - Emmylou Harris

(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
