Ooh Las Vegas
(Gram Parsons and Rick Grech)

Ooh, Las Vegas, ain't no place for a poor girl like me.
Ooh, Las Vegas, ain't no place for a poor girl like me.
Every time I hit your crystal city
You know you're going to make a wreck out of me.

Well, the first time I lose I drink whiskey.
The second time I lose I drink gin.
The third time I lose I drink anything
Cause I think I'm going to win.

Ooh, Las Vegas, ain't no place for a poor girl like me.
Every time I hit your crystal city
You know you're gonna make a wreck out of me.

Well, the queen of spades is a friend of mine,
The queen of hearts is a bitch.
Some day when I clean up my mind
I'll find out which is which.

Ooh, Las Vegas, ain't no place for a poor girl like me.
Every time I hit your crystal city
You know you're gonna make a wreck out of me.

Well I spend all night with a dealer
trying to get ahead.
Spend all day at the Holiday Inn
trying to get out of bed.

Ooh, Las Vegas, ain't no place for a poor girl like me.
Ooh, Las Vegas, ain't no place for a poor girl like me.
Ooh, Las Vegas, ain't no place for a poor girl like me.
Ooh, Las Vegas, ain't no place for a poor girl like me.
