Rollin' The Dice

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jim Lauderdale

Well I was cooling my heels down in Flacktown
They was blazing from a footrace with a hellhound
My heart was up on blocks from my last go-round
When you came roaring in upon the rebound

You got me rollin' the dice
You got me breaking 'em twice
You got me jammin' like ol' Billy on the low ground
You got me rollin' the dice
You got me breaking 'em twice
You got me ... on the rebound

You're like a midnight doctor on a sick call
You're like a big flash flood upon the river
You're like a Salvador Dali on a brick wall
Where the others only talk you deliver

You got me rollin' the dice
You got me breaking 'em twice
Ridin' shotgun in a Caddy with the top down
You got me rollin' the dice
You got me breaking 'em twice
You got me ... on the rebound

You got me rollin' the dice
You got me breaking 'em twice
You got me jammin' like ol' Billy on the low ground
You got me rollin' the dice
You got me breaking 'em twice
You got me ... on the rebound

You're like an ace high straight with all the chips down
You're like a shot of white lightning in a night gown
You're like a wrecking ball rider on a teardown
Come a crashing in my life upon the rebound

You got me rollin' the dice
You got me breaking 'em twice
You got me jammin' like ol' Billy on the low ground
You got me rollin' the dice
You got me breaking 'em twice
You got me ... on the rebound
You got me ... on the rebound
You got me rollin' right to you on the rebound
