Scratch Shot

"Scratch Shot" - by Mike Caucutt


Two ball combination - bank it in the side
Look out boy for the white ball - she's going for a ride
Shake your head - whiskey breath
Don't play dumb - don't play dead
Close your eyes and shoot if you can't decide

Scratch shot - broken heart
Long black cloud - it's a following me
Scratch shot - she loves me not
bad luck's gotta stop - following me.

Young boy from the farm - had to run away
City light kept calling - to come on down and stay
Went back to the farm - never gonna leave
'cause the city is full of beggars and thieves
and they don't give a damn about me

 

Scratch shot - broken heart
Long black cloud - it's a following me
Scratch shot - she loves me not
bad luck's gotta stop - following me.

Eight ball rolling over - girl, better stay away
I'' no good for you - Devil's got my pay
don't you understand - I'm the bad luck man
and the Devil don't like it if he don't get his way.

 

Scratch shot - broken heart
Long black cloud - it's a following me
Scratch shot - she loves me not
bad luck's gotta stop - following me.
