ACE IN THE HOLE
(Dennis Adkins)

CHORUS: You've got to have an ace in the hole,
A little secret that nobody knows.
Life is a gamble, a game we all play,
But you need to save something for a rainy day.
You've got to learn to play your cards right
If you expect to win in life.
Don't put it all on the line for just one roll.
You've got to have an ace in the hole.

If you're headed down a one-way street
And you're not sure it's the way you wanna go,
In money or love, or all the above,
Have a little more than what you show.
When life deals out a surprise
Have a few surprises of your own.
No matter what you do, no matter where you go,
You've got to have an ace in the hole. CHORUS

Don't put it all on the line for just one roll
You've got to have an ace in the hole.
No matter what you do, no matter where you go
You've got to have an ace in the hole.

[Recorded by George Strait.]
