Gamble Either Way Lyrics

Artist: Dolly Parton
Album: Burlap And Satin

Being born was the worst and the first mistake I ever made
The doctor didn't spank me he just slapped me in the face
And the cup of love was always quenchin' someone else's thirst
Leaving me to swallow the bitter taste of hurt
Cause I was raised an orphan never wanted as a kid
Until the year I turned thirteen then everybody did
Strangers passed me back and forth men just took me as they pleased
And others had a Cinderella slave to cook and clean and weave
Though the deck is stacked against you win or lose you have to play
The hand that life has dealt you and it's a gamble eather way

On a dusty road at fifteen in a yellow cotton dress
With the desert sun like an hungry dragon breathing down my neck
And the dry cracked plains would make me think of a prehistoric time
Should I fear what lay before me less than what I'd left behind
A fifteen year old girl don't have no trouble hitchin' rides
But sometimes when you're ridin' free you'll pay the highest price
On backroads and in backseats and in cheap highway motels
But what's a few more strangers in a life of nothing else
Though the deck is stacked against you win or lose you have to play
The hand that life has dealt you and it's a gamble eather way

Sixteen caught me cryin' underneath a scarlet light
On the doorstep of a stranger on a cold and rainy night
When I walked into the parlor here all the pieces seemed to fit
I was good at pleasin' strangers so I made the most of it
Either way is all a gamble so view the stakes and know the odds
And lay your cards up on the table do all your dealin' from the top
Though the deck is stacked against you win or lose you have to play
The hand that life has dealt you and it's a gamble eather way
Yes it's a gamble eather way
