The Lyrics

I'll never forget seeing people push shopping carts on the streets of Las Vegas many years ago---down to their last dime; a powerful reminder of what happens when you get carried away.
The twinkling lights of Reno
Seem very far away
A cardboard box was home
Until I went away
I've been hangin' outside the doors of Caesar's Palace
Wish I could be just sitting by the bay

I left my cart somewhere in Reno
Filled with my clothes and memories
I had no luck at playing cards
Roulette is pretty hard
The morning frost covered my hair

My cart sits there in downtown Reno
For all the gambling world to see
I had to leave you quick, downtown Reno
A few loan sharks were after me

Nicely done, Royce. I had tried to come up with something for this OS but, came up as empty as my wallet the last time I was in Vegas. In fact, it was the only time I've been there....555

Great job, Royce. Reminds me of the old joke about arriving in Vegas in a 30 thousand dollar car, and leaving on a 150 thousand dollar bus :-) 555
