DOUBLE DOWN Lyrics, Music and Performance By Singer Songwriter Colette O’Connor

Lyrics

Blackjack, twenty-one is the number
But they found a letter in his hand.
Wrapped inside
were the queens of heart and diamonds.
Red ladies take your secrets to the grave.
Two words was all it said
to that
dead gambling man.
Double Down.

Double-Down you devil,
double down.
Double down down down down
The devil was reaching high
when he tumbled from the sky
and now in hell
he’s found
his
double down.
Detroit PD has the file.
Detectives asked all around.
You see that gambler
had a wife up in Dearborn Heights
and
had another across town.
Those ladies were a pair
that didn’t seem to care
because neither one’s been found
ooooo…
Double-Down you devil,
double down
Double down down down down
The devil was reaching high
when he tumbled from the sky
and now in hell he’s found
his
double down.
Double down, hit the aces when they’re low,
Double down read the letter and you’ll know, know, know
The devil was wrapped up in his game
and then that letter came.
Black Jack, twenty-one is the number.
Fate is dealing all the cards
No-supply to speak of
but demands up.
Pressure hits pretty hard.
Red ladies know the game
Lookout players who betray
Because now in hell he’s,
now in Hell he's,
now in Hell he's found
his
Double Down
