shame

if everybody got what they deserved
and those who were at fault got the blame
the best of us would always take the prize
and I would be a loser to my shame

if life was something that we all could play
and fairness somehow built into the game
I wouldn’t even cross the starting line
ain’t it just a bloody crying shame

no matter what I try I always lose
though lord knows that was never my life’s aim
but even if I got my just deserts
I’d still have bugger all, ain’t it a shame

  1. Just you stay all the same
    and look after your name
    cos there’s no one to blame
    if you don’t play their game

    Sounds like “shame” has the blues, just Google the “Campbell Brothers” & let some EXCELLENT Pedal Steel guitar slide blues take all your problems away.
    There’s Blues & then there’s Holy Blues, one is sung on Saturday night, the other (with different lyrics) is sung on Sunday but they BOTH use some similar music,……..enjoy!!

        Sorry, their CD’s are called “Sacred Steel”, may be as many as 6 of them, that’s some real pedal steel playin’.

        • I watched a few of the Campbell Brothers videos on YouTube, their quality is excellent, but the spirituality or religious element is not for me.

    It’s always a shame
    when you have to choose
    so someone can win
    and others must lose
    but I truly believe
    unless you leave clues
    it will be a good day
    and you won’t make the news… πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†
