Fair to Even Odds

Credits: 
Lyrics: Robert Hunter. Music: Pete Sears

Verse 1
How long, Jack, till we get to Singapore?
How long, Joe, did we sign on for?
Better keep bailing while the rain pours down
The day crews sleeping and the night crews drowned

Verse 2
Caught at the border running forty-fives
A shot in the back could mean goodbye
You know I’ve been shot before
And I didn't lay down and die, no

Verse 3
Lie around and clench my teeth
Until my jaws are sore
Maybe give up cigarettes
Till my lungs don't hurt no more

Verse 4
Shot in the back and drawing flies
Flat on my belly with bloodshot eyes
This is the life I love the best
Devil be welcome to the rest

Chorus
Fair to even odds, I wager
Fair to even odds, I give
Fair to even I recover
Fair to even odds I live

Solo Verses

Verse 5
Just how far is this day risen?
Move my head so I can see
Hear the hot sweet winds of heaven
Thick and red as blood to me

Verse 6
I can hear the hangman's hornpipe
Blowing high and low and strong
Fare to even odds, dear Annie
Play no sweeter when I'm gone

Chorus
Fair to even odds, I wager
Fair to even odds, I lay
If we make it till the sunrise
We can make it through the day

Performers: 
Pete Sears

Bob wrote the lyrics for "Fair To Even Odds" about the same time as he wrote "Friend of the Devil" with Jerry. He had no music for it and years later I realized the words almost perfectly matched some music I'd written. I called him up and we collaborated on the song for my solo album, "The Long Haul" in 2000.
