Lyrics:
 Ah let me tell you people
 About this blackjack game
 It's caused me nothing but trouble
 And I've only myself to blame

 Hey hey hey yeah
 How unlucky can one man be
 Well every quarter I get
 Lord, blackjack takes it away from me

 My friends don't come around me
 Because I've been so blind
 I can't even borrow a nickle
 Now I've almost lost my mind

 Hey hey hey yeah
 How unlucky can one man be
 Well every quarter I get
 Lord, blackjack takes it away from me

 I sat there with two tens
 I thought I'd have some fun
 The dealer hit sixteen with a five
 Just enough to make twenty one

 Hey hey hey yeah yeah
 How unlucky can one man be
 Well every quarter I get
 Yeah, blackjack takes it away from me
