House of Cards Lyrics

Artist: Steve Forbert
Album: Young, Guitar Days

VERSE
Oooh, I guess I knew it would happen eventually
But I was not prepared for the word
No, I was not prepared for the word
No, they didn't give me no warning 'fore they told me the news
And I could not believe what I heard
No, I could not believe what I heard

VERSE
Hey, well it started to hit me later on in the night
I reacted by blowing my stack
I reacted by blowing my stack
Oooh, feeling cheated and taunted and mad at the whole world at large
As I pissed on a black cadillac
As I pissed on a black cadillac

CHORUS
House of cards--(and) don't it make ya wonder?
House of cards--(oh) don't it make ya wonder?

VERSE
Oooh, thousands of people gathered outside of his gate
Some came to sell souvenirs
Some came to sell souvenirs
Yes, souvenirs of the hillbilly singer who conquered the world
Now dead after 42 years
Dead after 42 years

(REPEAT CHORUS)

VERSE
Yes, and then came the stories all pushin' their way through the press
Stories of madness and pain
Stories of madness and pain
Oooh, they'll do what they can to ravage, exploit, and destroy
His glory, his fame, and his name
His glory, his fame, and his name

(REPEAT CHORUS)

VERSE
Ooh, the King undisputed, reclusive an' high on a throne
The symbol an' saint, he was youth
Oh, the symbol an' saint, he was youth
Yes, an' now that he's dead an' he's laid in his great, marble tomb
We're all left with a whole lotta truth
We're all left with a whole lotta truth

VERSE
Ooh, I guess a lotta sad people grew up on that hot, summer day
One more big dream swept away
One more big dream swept away
Yes, he's gone an' he's free, but still all of his music remains
I don't know what more I can say
And I don't know what more I can say . . . except

(REPEAT CHORUS THREE TIMES)
