BLACK HAWK HOTEL

There’s a wooden Indian at the front door
As somber as somber can be
I could learn a lot from him
Man I act so crazy

And the red velvet walls
And the smoke filled halls
And a lot of people searchin’ just like me
I’m in hell
In my room at the Black Hawk Hotel

I found a place to lay my hat
That I finally could afford
But I sleep with one eye open
And the noise comes from right next door

And the red velvet walls
And the smoke filled halls
And a lot of people lost just like me
I’m in hell
In my room at the Black Hawk Hotel

Now the old polish lady at the Cypress Lounge
Serves me my Bud ice cold
And the young girls from the college in town
Make me feel so old

There’s a Greyhound leavin’ in the mornin’
Dry eyed and dry mouth I’ll be on
Hope is a lot like water
You never miss it ‘til it’s gone

And the red velvet walls
And the smoke filled halls
And a lot of lonely souls just like me
I’m in hell
On the bus outside the Black Hawk Hotel

Hope is a lot like water
You never miss it ‘til it’s gone
