  • [Margo Price]
    On the day before the day before the new year
    The snow is falling on my prairie home
    I'm so far away from where I started
    But no closer to where I belong

    [Willie Nelson]
    How many trails have I gone down for no reason
    Just to learn that I can't leave myself behind
    And the only devil I've ever seen was in the mirror
    And the only enemy I know is in my mind

    [Both]
    Won't you tell me how long must I pay off these dues
    Won't you tell me, is winning learning to lose
    You said it, oh but say it's not true
    Is winning really learning to lose

    [Margo Price/Both]
    Everywhere that I turn the cards stack against me
    And I wonder, was it bad luck or just design
    [Willie Nelson/Both]
    And all the things I've had to do without have been a blessing
    But sometime a blessing is a curse in disguise

    [Both]
    Won't you tell me how long must I pay off these dues
    Won't you tell me, is winning learning to lose
    You said it, oh but say that it's not true
    Is winning really learning to lose
