Slots

Now she lives in a trailer on the outskirts of Reno

Plays quarter slots in the local’s casino

And every round goes higher and higher

She sings Soldiers of the Cross 

She's got a drink in one hand, and got coins in the other

They drop in the slot one after another

And every round goes higher and higher

She sings Soldiers of the Cross

When was it - '48,  '49?

She was a girl on the hill county line

In a church with no screens, she waved a paper fan

Sang soldiers of the cross

She needs lights, she needs action, change for a ten

She needs Camels please and good lord she needs gin

Every round goes higher and higher

She sings Soldiers of the Cross 

Now she lives in a trailer on the outskirts of Reno

Plays quarter slots in the local’s casino

And every round goes higher and higher

She sings Soldiers of the Cross 

She sings we are climbing Jacob’s ladder

We are climbing Jacob’s ladder

We are climbing Jacob’s ladder

She sings Soldiers of the Cross
