If I Lose, I Don't Care-Charlie Poole & the North Carolina Ramblers
Poole, banjo and vocal, Posey Rorer, fiddle and Roy Harvey, guitar in D position, standard tuning

I can't walk, neither can I talk
Just gettin' back from the state of old New York
One Morning, before day

Flossie, oh Flossie, now what is the matter?
Walked all the way from old Cincinnata
One morning, jus' 'fore day

REFRAIN: If I lose, let me lose
I don't care how much I lose
If I lose a hundred dollars while I'm trying to win a dime
For my baby, she keeps money all the time

The blood was a-runnin', and I was runnin', too
Give my feet some exercise, had nothin' else to do
One morning, jus' 'fore day

REFRAIN: If I lose, let me lose
I don't care how much I lose
If I lose a hundred dollars while i'm trying to win a dime
For my baby, she keeps money all the time

The peas was so greasy and the meat was so fat
The boys was fighting the Spaniards while I was fighting gnats
One morning, before day

REFRAIN: If I lose, let me lose
I don't care how much I lose
If I lose a hundred dollars while i'm trying to win a dime
For my baby, she keeps money all the time

See them girls, settin' at the tank
Ready to catch a freight train they called old Nancy Hanks
One morning, jus' 'fore day

REFRAIN: If I lose, let me lose
I don't care how much I lose
If I lose a hundred dollars while i'm trying to win a dime
For my baby, she keeps money all the time
