the road to reno

i fell in love with a girl
out in dublin town
i kissed the ring of a saint
when I went through spain
i danced with a strip girl
down in San Francisco
i left all my worries out on highway 61

on the road to reno
where i took my fall
on the road to reno
where you can lose it all

i can’t remember for the life of me
where i left my cutting knife
i must of left it lying somewhere
on the cutting floor
everybody’s saying
that it’s me that shed that blood
but it wasn’t
and i can tell you because i was

on the road to reno
where i took my fall
on the road to reno
where you can lose it all

i haven’t stepped on solid ground
since i stepped outside
i’ve been running on debt
ever since i hit this road
i’ll pay you a visit
if i’m passing through
you’ll be playing with the big shots
and i’ll be shooting for the blues

so keep your eyes on reno
we’re all going down
i’m headin’ back to reno
i gonna win it back this time

or maybe
i’ll waste my time
i’ve got my dollar and
i’m gonna bet it all on a rhyme

on the road to reno
it’s so far from home
on the road to reno
i’m heading down there on my own
on the road to reno
where i took my fall
on the road to reno
where you can lose it all
