It's been a while since we had one of these. I found this title of a F.Scott Fitzgerald short story which seemed to me to cry out as a title of a blues, country or road song: Dice, Brass Knuckles and Guitar.

F.Scott Fitzgerald books,I thought I'd read 'em all ,
but there's one if I did that I surely can't recall . Unless I might have read it in some smokey bar .......

A last throw of the dice
And luck it rolled my way
I walked away with thousands
On this my lucky day

But I played a bad loser
Who cursed his rotten luck
And I was unsuspecting
When those hard brass knuckles struck

Now I'm standing on a corner
And I'm playing my guitar
I'm singing for my supper
And I'm gazing at the stars

That's good!

Here's mine (just a chorus):

Roll the dice
and take your chances
The only choice
is lose or win
And if someone throws brass knuckles
on the table
You can always pick up
your old guitar again

(and tag line at the end of the last chorus: Your old guitar will always be your friend)
