Blackjack Heart

key of [Cm]

I got a blackjack heart
Now what you wanna bet
That I’m over 21
And your match you’ve met
I got a blackjack heart
And I’ll cut you cold
Gotta play your part
Do you hit or do you hold?

Try to understand
When I’m dealin with a man
I’m a blackjack woman with
a cool…slow…hand

I got a real raw deal
And it made me mean
I got a blackjack heart
And a shufflin machine

Deal it from the top
Baby don’t you stop…

Mexican Standoff (Mighty Sound 2005)

No one’s ever been able to define blues. To me, blues is three chords and something to say. There’s a real temptation to think that blues is singing about misery and sorrow. It’s singing about your experiences, and what I find in blues is the message of hope and inspiration, because you may be singing about your misery, but the fact that you’re singing, that’s the real message.
