Second Effort - text

I've been sitting here
Crying since long before the day began
With my pockets full of nothing but broken dreams
And my head in my empty hands
The winnings that I thought I had
And come so far to get
Are further away then they've ever been,
They've been taken by another man

I wouldn't take a train for home
Even if I could
'Cause they've been saving their joy
For the hometown boy
Who went away to make it good
I bet they cleared away the parlour
So my Ma can dance me in the door
And the old man can wink, and pour me a drink
And ask me what the tears are for

It's harder to try again than it was to begin
A man can play a lone hand in a high stakes game
But it doesn't mean he's gonna win
And somehow I've got to keep
From getting further down
Before I buy myself a bottle of cheap escape
And a ticket to another town

I know I'm not crying
'Cause I think I've had it mighty tough
I did my best with all the rest
But it just wasn't good enough
And I've been working and training too long
Just to make it here
To merely swallow my pride and walk outside
And come back another year

'Cause it's harder to try again than it was to begin
A man can play a lone hand in a high stakes game
But it doesn't mean he's gonna win
And somehow I've got to keep
From getting further down
Before I buy myself a bottle of cheap escape
And a ticket to another town
I wanna drown in the grape and make my escape
On a ticket to another town
