You built your house,
a fortress strong and tall.
A screamin, dream retreat,
doesn't that beat all, y'all.
But, who's there for you
when you're cold and lonely
as you night winds call?
Best, lay it down
and let it ride, say
winner take all.
When all odds are stacked against you
folks are grinnin as you stall.
lay em down, and let it ride
say winner take all.
Get up to that winner's circle
take yourself a little bow.
Then, lay em down,
say, let it ride
winner take all.

When all odds are stacked against you
folks are grinnin'
as you stall.
lay em down
let it ride
winner take all.
Step up to the plate
take your best swing
let the umpire make his call
then lay em down
and let it ride
winner take all.
Lay em down
say let it ride
don't let winner
take the fall.
