Till Good Luck Comes My Way

Till Good Luck Comes My Way lyrics

Till Good Luck Comes My Way

(RAVENAL enters from the saloon, followed by MEN)
RAVENAL
The man who ventures with chance
Is the man who's adding the salt, romance,
To a world
That otherwise is dark and drear.
The sane conservative lot
Have their fate secure in a guarded spot
Of the world,
They're welcome to their drab career.

TENORS
It is all well enough to be grinning
While your winnings grow,
But when Fortune reverses her spinning,
Life is not a-glowing.

BASSES
It is easy to be grinning
While your stack is growing,
But when Fortune reverses her spinning
Life is not a-glowing.

ALL MEN
That is why we like to see
Someone who can be
Unconcerned and free
Like you.

RAVENAL
If I am losing today
I will take my loss and I'll pay
For I know that in time my luck will turn,
It's bound to turn.
Till good luck comes my way
I'll play along,
While there's a game on the highway
I'll stray along
With just the turn of a wheel
Or the flip of a card as my guide.
I let fate decide
If I walk or ride.
Why sit alone with your sorrow
And kill the day?
There may be sunshine tomorrow
To fill the day.
While I've a heart and a brain
And my ebony cane
I can borrow
Until the day when good luck comes my way.

MEN
Never venture, never gain;
Men of caution, it is plain.
Fortune will change like an April day,
So we will wait till good luck
Will come our way!

RAVENAL
Never venture, never gain;
Men of caution, it is plain,
Live in vain,
So I will wait till good luck
Will come my way!
