Lyrics
High Roller

Shiny shoes
Drink in hand
Casino blues
You're the man

High Roller
You're new in town
High roller
You will go down

Cards to your chest
Raising the bet
Win or lose
No regret
Queen of hearts
King of spades
Ace of diamonds
Joker in the shade

High Roller
Make no mistake
High roller
This glitterworld is fake

High Roller
You think you're the best
High Roller
Won't find any rest

The game is on
All for the rush
Riches to be won
Go for the royal flush
Blinded by the gold
You're losing your way
A story often told
A high price to pay

High Roller
The dye is cast
High roller
Your luck won't last

KC july 2011

Digging the Boz Scaggs funky R&B vibe. Excellent writing, performance, production, and mix.

Cool, sorta 80s retro groove
Love that compressed guitar sound! I agree with the Boz Scaggs comparos listed below... Nice tight harmonies in the chorus... Good push in the groove; while it mightlike some variation, the sort of inexorable nature of the loop actually serves the song in its own way too. Nice soloing!!

Cool hook and your lyric develops it well, like those lines with the cards. Bluesy jazzy vibe reminds me of Boz Scaggs. I like the arrangement. Strong vocals, crisp production

Hi KC. Like the groove you establish and your vocal harmonies are just right. Also like the way the bass weaves it's way through the song and the guitar solos are tasty. Good song (as always). Regard, Peter

Great song!
I love to play the video blackjack at the bars when I have some money to play with, but that's the extent of gambling for me. I have known a few friends that are consumed with it and have lost more than just money.

Nice piece you have here. Love that you did all the instruments here, sounded like you had fun with bass line which I love.

Thanks for sharing! Take care-patty
