    Default No Win, No Lose Situation

    Girl song from my Shania period.

    I cut my losses up in Louisville
    And I headed back to the south
    That sweet-talking man nearly broke my will
    But he was nothing but mouth
    He turned my head when he spoke of marriage
    But I declined his invitation
    It's a No Win, No Lose Situation

    Well, it was going good for a little while
    I thought I had something to gain
    Then I caught him out with an old girl friend
    I had to use restraint
    The stakes were high, but I broke even
    It was coffee and conversation
    It's a No Win, No Lose Situation

    I put my Z28 on I-65
    Turned on the radio
    Chely was singing "Shut Up And Drive"
    And Georgia was calling me home

    I taught that gambler up in Louisville
    You don't hit on this Southern Belle
    That two-timing fool was moving in for the kill
    But he can go to hell
    I'm going home with my virtue intact
    Much to his frustration
    It's a No Win, No Lose Situation

    Ready-made for the Dixie Chicks! So colorful and rich without being overdone (not that I've ever read anything overdone by J.C.!) With country being such a big industry, I could hear a number of Nashville Queens belting this one out! Third time I've said it recently, but true again: Current in its theme and imagery. (Except sorry, I don't know Chely...)

    I like your work man. It's all very self explanatory. While I'm one personally for imagery and manipulations of words and such, I really appreciate the other end of the spectrum. You do it very well and it's been great reading your stuff.
