If I Lose


Written by Ralph Stanley. Early Basement Tapes recording, available on several bootlegs. Included as a bonus track on the remastered Music from Big Pink from 2000.


  G
I never thought I'd need you
    C
But now I find I'm wrong.
D             D7
Come on back, sweet mama,
C                   G
Back where you belong.
G
I've gambled over this town
     C
And find that I can't win,
D                D7             G
Come on back and pick me up again.


Chorus:
B   C  D7 D  (B,C,D can be played as single notes.)
Now if I lose,
         G
Let me lose.
        D
I don't care
           G
How much I lose.
     G7
If I lose a hundred dollars,
           C
While I'm tryin' to win a dime,
    D            D7            G
My baby, she got money all the time.

Of all the other girls I know,
None can take your place,
Cause when I get into a jam,
They just ain't in the race.
So come on back home, babe,
Let's take another round,
With you here by my side, baby,
The deal just can't go down.

Chorus x2.
