An Angel's Wing Brushed the Penny Slots - Mark Eitzel

The El Cortez is the gold in my vein
Since my poor wife finally killed her pain
I'll become the man that time forgot
Drip by drip, drop by drop

She prayed and prayed to the weeping one
Who kept her mouth on the mouth of her gun
Those tears that leave you to rot
Drip by drip, drop by drop

To the slots I go every day
I know the tide will go my way
If I give up hope what have I got
Drip by drip, drop by drop

An angel's wing brushed the penny slots
A spinning star, an ancient plot
To the lights what we call luck
Is how they fly
Escape the plot

I was 10 dollars down when she appeared
With klieg light wings my eyes they teared
Tried to rise to her but the carpet I caught
Drip by drip, drop by drop

If that was death then it's not so bad
She held me close and she said
"On the wheel of fortune the winnings never stop"
Drip by drip, drop by drop

An angel's wing brushed the penny slots
And tried to wake my weak heart up
And when I fell she read all my thoughts
Did not run
She helped me up

And the El Cortez still welcomes me
Guess if you die on their floor the drinks are all free
And I will roll high, just wait and see
Now lady luck has punched my clock
Drip by drip, drop by drop
