Lucky Me, Lucky You

Parnell Lee Roy

Got a sack full of old lottery tickets
I guess I oughta throw 'em away
I threw a lot of money at the race track ponies
But I never even won one race
And you say every chain letter you ever got
You passed right along to your friends
Still all you ever got was a chain of bad luck
That you swore you thught was never gonna end
Well honey all the good fortune that was passin' us by
Sure came back around when your eyes met mine

Lucky me, lucky you
We finally fell into something so strong and true
Lucky me, lucky you
I thank my lucky stars and the good Lord too

I remember sitting down with the gypsy woman
She took a close look at my hand
She said son I can see a lot of love in your life
Someday you're gonna understand
You say you threw a lot of change down that wishin' well
But it never really changed a thing
Well honey all of those pennies are paying off now
I'm buying you a diamond ring
