The Road to Del Rio

Nothing Ventured Nothing Gained

I never gave as good as I got
Now just memories remain
All she wanted was a broken old heart
Nothing ventured, Nothing gained

And I don’t know the answer
I never asked why
And I don’t know the reason seasons go by
And I don’t know if the pleasure’s
Worth the price of the pain
Nothing ventured Nothing gained

Nothing ventured nothing gained
By a sweet desert flower
Washed away by the rain
Nothing ventured nothing gained
By a hobo who’s listening for a southbound train
or a hank Williams love song and it’s sweet sad refrain
Nothing ventured nothing gained

I’d be a richer man today
If I gave it all away
What difference would it make
Just that little give and take

I never gave as good as I got
Now just these memories remain
All she wanted was a broken old heart
Nothing ventured nothing gained
