​Blackjack

This song is by Ray Charles and appears on the album Yes Indeed! (1958) and on the compilation album The Best Of Ray Charles: The Atlantic Years (1994).

Ah let me tell you people
About this blackjack game
It's caused me nothing but trouble
And I've only myself to blame.

Hey, hey, hey, yeah
How unlucky can one man be
Well, every quarter I get
Lord, blackjack takes it away from me.

My friends don't come around me
Because I've been so blind
I can't even borrow a nickel
Now I've almost lost my mind.

Hey, hey, hey, yeah
How unlucky can one man be
Well, every quarter I get
Lord, blackjack takes it away from me.

I sat there with two tens
I thought I'd have some fun
The dealer hit sixteen with a five
Just enough to make twenty one.

Hey, hey, hey, yeah, yeah
How unlucky can one man be
Well, every quarter I get
Yeah, blackjack takes it away from me...
