Ian Matthews - Reno Nevada lyrics

Farina

It's a long long way down to Reno Nevada
It's a long long way to your home
And the change in your pocket it's beginning to grumble
And you reap just about what you sow
You can walk down to street, pass your face in a window
Or go on foolin' around
You can work night and day, take a chance on promotion
Or fall through a hole in the ground.

Now there ain't no game like the game that you're playing
When you've got a little something to lose
And there ain't no time like the time that you're wasting
And you waste just about what you choose
There's a man at the table and you know he's been able
To return all the odds that you lay
But you can't feed your hunger and you ain't getting younger
And your tongue it's got nothing to say.

And it's a long long way down to Reno Nevada
It's a long long way to your home
And the ground underneath you it's beginning to tremble
And the sky up above you has grown
There's a time to be movin', a time to be groovin'
A time to climb up the wall
But the odds they've doubled and it ain't worth the trouble
And you're never going nowhere at all.

And it's a long long way down to Reno Nevada
It's a long long way to your home
And the ground underneath you it's beginning to tremble
And the sky up above you has grown
There's a man at the table and you know he's been able
To return all the odds that you lay
But you can't feed your hunger and you ain't getting younger
And your tongue it's got nothing to say.
