I'm Waiting For The Ships That Never Come In Lyrics

Artist: Jim Reeves
Album: Talkin' To Your Heart

I'm waiting for ships that never come in I wonder where they can be
Life is only a game of poker and happiness is the partner
They deal you five cards in the cradle and you play with your like it or not
Some game had a start with and the game doesn't seem on the square
When you pick up your cards and discover you were born without even a pair
But there's no use in kicking nor squawking
Just pick up your cards and begin to figure in plan and puzzle
While fate looks on with a grin
Some take a chance on bluffing and stake everything they've got
On a little yankee poor flush and sometimes that wins a plot
Others will break up openers to draw for a middle straight
They know the chance they're takin' and they learned your mistake too late
Some can't plan crook it against all good advice
But they seldom get away with it at the end they've paid the price
The most of us play straight poker but I'll tell you boys it's hard
When you're there with both ends open and you can't draw the winning card
Now I've always been a loser it seems that I never can win
Andr I'm just a dreamer who's waiting for ships that never come in
I wonder where they can be
