Kenny Rogers Harder Cards Lyrics

Last updated: 11/07/2007 10:00:00 AM

Well, a hammer fell down on a .44 Primer
now thers one less problem in South Carolina tonight.
Wrong or right

She just looked at me as she finished her tale
and her blank expression went another shade pale of gray
There was nothing to say

In the shadows of her face I saw the scars
That you get when you live where love is hard
And she said

Don't you sit and judge me from some high and mighty seat
Don't you shrug it off until you've walked a mile in my bare feet
There are people that you pass by every day
With harder cards than yours in life to play

Well, I put the cuffs on her and I put her in the car
I Walked inside, And he was on the floor stone dead
shot in the head

There were whiskey bottles and dope by his chair
and A starving baby with nothing to wear but tears
you know the picture was clear

He had finally pushed her farther then the line
And the badge I wore had lost all of its shine
And she said

Don't you sit and judge me from some high and mighty seat
Don't you shrug it off until you've walked a mile in my bare feet
There are people that you pass by every day
With harder cards than yours in life to play

well I stood there thinkin' how justice was blind
But I diden't see any an I could see just fine
then I made up my mind

so I took the cuffs of her and I took her back in
I Wiped off gun and I wrapped it in his right hand
Where it should've been

And the morning paper told in black and white
It's just another senseless case of suicide
Oh Just a Suicide

Oh, but don't you sit and judge me from some high and mighty seat
Don't you shrug it off until you've walked a mile along my beat
There are people that you pass by every day
With harder cards than yours in life to play

ya, a hammer fell down on a .44 Primer
now there's one less problem in South Carolina tonight
