I'm on a Roll

I'm on a roll - Jim Dixon
00:00 / 00:00

I’m on a roll

No other song in my catalog makes me smile more. The organic nature of how it came together and got recorded, the luck of having such talented friends gathered with a willingness to groove that 1940 jazz style. an experience I treasure every time I hear it.

Lyrics

I’m on a roll

When the sun comes up I’ll have to go

 but for tonight I’m on a roll

 

Lights from the bar 

casting shadows on broken hearts 

The strum of a guitar

 fat cats in the corner all smoking cigars 

Look at me rolling sevens

 live in hell or die in heaven 

when the sun comes up I’ll have to go

 but for tonight I’m on a roll

 

Lady luck

 is a girl in a red dress with a little more to love 

The one I left at home

 by now she’s packed up and gone 

Regrets I know I will

 they come in the morning tonight their time to kill

When the sun comes up I’ll have to go 

but for tonight I’m on a roll

 

Regrets I know I will

 they come in the morning tonight their time to kill

When the sun comes up I’ll have to go

 but for tonight I’m on a roll
