OOH LAS VEGAS
Gram Parsons


Ooh, Las Vegas ain't no place for a poor boy like me

Ooh, Las Vegas ain't no place for a poor boy like me

Every time I hit your crystal city

You know you gonna make a wreck out of me


Well, the first time I lose I drink whiskey

Second time I lose I drink gin

Third time I lose I drink anything

'Cause I think I'm gonna win


Ooh, Las Vegas ain't no place for a poor boy like me

No

Ooh, Las Vegas ain't no place for a poor boy like me

Every time I hit your crystal city

You know you gonna make a wreck out of me


Well, the Queen of Spades is a friend of mine

The Queen of Hearts is a bitch

Someday when I clean up my mind

I'll find out which is which


Ooh, Las Vegas ain't no place for a poor boy like me

Ooh, Las Vegas ain't no place for a poor boy like me

Every time I hit your crystal city

You know you gonna make a wreck out of me


Instrumental (Electric Guitar)


Well, I spend all night with the dealer

Tryin' to get ahead

Spend all day at the Holyday Inn

Tryin' to get out of bed


Ooh, Las Vegas ain't no place for a poor boy like me

Ooh, Las Vegas ain't no place for a poor boy like me

Every time I hit your crystal city

You know you gonna make a wreck out of me


Instrumental Ending (Electric Guitar)
