Close My Case And Move On

Lyrics

I have been playing the long shots
Been betting against the odds
Every nickel of my stakes gone
Told to close my case and move on
Told to close my case and move on

In a hat you wore a red rose
At the back not on the front though
So you’d remember till it hurt so
In a hat she wore a red rose
In a hat she wore a red rose

I was given some advice
I didn’t outta think twice
Yet that was my advice
Didn’t ought think twice
Didn’t ought think twice

Traveling on a dead road
Carrying such a heavy load
Every nickel of my stakes gone
Told to close my case and move on
And told to close my case and move on

I was told I’d be ok
If I went to Bombay
I didn’t go there anyway
Wonder what goes on in Bombay
Wonder what goes on in Bombay

In a hat she wore a red rose
At the back not on the front though
So you’d remember till it hurt so
In a hat she wore a red rose
In a hat she wore a red rose

Traveling on a dead road
Carrying such a heavy load
Every nickel of my stakes gone
Told to close my case and move on
And told to close my case and move on
