The queen of diamonds let you down
The queen of hearts you say you never met

Stole your dreams and paid you with regret
(Is there gonna be anything left, is there gonna be anything?)
(Ain't it hard when you're all alone in the center ring?)

Only stardust
Maybe tomorrow

As they came to town to face another showdown

Find your seats?
Easy money and faithless women

Sooner or later we all have to die?
Four men ride out and only three ride back
