Lyrics

Quite some time, I been sittin' it out
Didn't take no chances
I was a pris'ner of doubt.
I knocked down the wailin' wall
Ain't no sin
Got the feel of fortune; deal me in

Comin' straight on for you. You made my mind.
Now I'm stronger. Now I'm comin' through
Straight on, straight on for you
Straight on for you.

Now I know I got to play my hand
What the winner don't know, a gambler understands
My heart keeps playin' it through
with you, my friend
I'll take my chances on you again and again

Comin' straight on for you. You made my mind
Now I'm stronger. Now I'm comin' through
Straight on, straight on for you
Straight on for you

There's no way, I'm gonna sit this one out
Gotta take a chance now, not be a prisoner of doubt

Gonna knock down the wailin' wall, it ain't no sin
I, got, the feel of fortune, deal me in

I'm comin' straight on for you
I made up my mind
I'm feeling strong now I'm comin' through,
Straight on, straight on for you,
Straight on for you

Now, I know, how to play my hand
What the winner don't know, the gambler understands

No, you don't stand a chance
You don't stand a chance

I'm comin' straight on for you
(Straight on for you)
I made up my mind

I'm feeling strong now I'm comin' through,
Straight on, straight on for you,
Straight on for you

Straight on, straight on for you,
(Straight on for you)
Straight on for you
