Curious as to what "wears those sevens on her arm" means.
Can anyone explain?


Well Loretta she's my barroom girl
Wears them sevens on her sleeves
Dances like a diamond shines
Tells me lies I love to b'lieve

"Wears those sevens on her sleeve..." Seven is a lucky number in gambling, dice especially. I've heard that in a bar that Townes frequented the waitress' wore a lucky seven emblem on the shoulder of their work uniforms.
