All The Luck

I serve drinks down at Patty’s
I know everybody here
Joe walks in with his troubles
He takes a shot with his beer
He said “I went lookin’ for some bad news”
I found what I was lookin’ for
How can it be, she’s leavin’ me
She don’t love me anymore

Some people have all the luck
Why can’t I catch a break
Some people live their whole lives
Without a big mistake
Fair-haired children in God’ good graces
Who don’t know what they’ve got
Some people have all the luck
They have all the luck

I left the bottle on the table
I have seen it all before
No one comes here ‘cause they’re happy
But happy’s what they’re looking for
Me and Joe, we both know
We’ll never find our pot of gold

Some people have all the luck
Why can’t I catch a break
Some people live their whole lives
Without a big mistake
Fair-haired children in God’ good graces
Who don’t know what they’ve got
Some people have all the luck
They have all the luck
They have all the luck

Winters here don’t come easy
I’m frozen like the ground below
I’m someone time’s forgotten
I have dreams they’ll never know
What lives in me is like the spring
Underneath the drifts of snow

Some people have all the luck
Why can’t I catch a break
Some people live their whole lives
Without a big mistake
Fair-haired children in God’ good graces
Who don’t know what they’ve got
Some people have all the luck
They have all the luck
They have all the luck
They have all the luck
