  • Great Lyrics

    This is the latest Kenny Rogers song called "Harder Cards". When I hear this song, I think of you guys.

    Harder Cards

    "Well, a hammer fell down on a .44 Primer
    And that was one less problem in South Carolina tonight
    Wrong or right

    She just looked to me as she finished her tale
    The blank expression went another pale shade of gray
    There was nothing to say

    In the shadows of her face I saw the scars
    That you get when you live where love is hard
    And she said

    Don't you sit and judge me from some high and mighty seat
    Don't you shrug it off until you've walked a mile in my bare feet
    There are people that you pass by every day
    With harder cards than yours in life to play

    Well, I put the cuffs on her and sat her in the car
    Walked inside, he was layin' on the floor stone dead
    Been shot in the head

    There were whiskey bottles and dope by the chair
    A starving baby with nothing to wear but tears
    So the picture was clear

    He had finally pushed her way across the line
    And the badge I wore was losing all its shine
    And she said

    Don't you sit and judge me from some high and mighty seat
    Don't you shrug it off until you've walked a mile in my bare feet
    There are people that you pass by every day
    With harder cards than yours in life to play

    I just stood there thinkin' how justice is blind
    But after thirty five years you learn to read the signs
    So I made up my mind

    I took the cuffs of her and I walked her back in
    Wiped the gun off and wrapped it in his right hand
    Where it should've been

    And the morning paper read in black and white
    It's just another senseless case of suicide
    Suicide

    Oh, but don't you sit and judge me from some high and mighty seat
    Don't you shrug it off until you've walked a mile along my beat
    There are people that you pass by every day
    With harder cards than yours in life to play

    Well, a hammer fell down on a .44 Primer
    And that was one less problem in South Carolina tonight"
    Dance like no one's watching -- Sing like no one's listening, and work like you don't need the money.

      Guess he's gotta do something now that his restaurant chain is out of business.

      Autum Angel, I KNOW that you did not mean any type of slam or dis with your post. But I DO SINCERELY hope that you don't think of cops as being folks who will do stuff like that.

      We have a job to do. It isn't always easy, sometimes we hate it. But we are NOT in a position to be a judge and a jury.

      IMHO, the lyrics in that song are a general disservice to all LE folks. The thing is that I don't think Rogers MEANS them to be. It is a lack of understanding about what the law, and what law enforcement is about.

        I was wondering if you would think it was mean. I didn't mean to portray that I just liked it because I think sometimes the citizens feel that cops aren't human and they don't care about anyone except doing their job. I don't know I just like the song I guess...

          When I first read the post, I got the impression that it was trying to humanize the LEO.
          While I agree that the course of action is in fact illegal, for entertainment value I would rate it as pretty good.
