Lyrics

Summer day, learning a game with the man who gave my daddy his name across the board in a memory
I jumped him, he jumped me. Black and red. Crown a king. My first try was a victory.

He smiled and said, "Take it from me, it ain't always gonna be that easy. If you're thinkin' it will, better think again."

Just 'cause you win, doesn't mean losing ain't around the bend
And winning may not mean what you think it does
Chalk this up to beginner's luck

Summer day, different game. Asked my gal if she'd take my name. She said yes through her smilin' tears.
Told granddaddy how I'd won her love. Wondered if we'd make it when the times got tough. "How have you done it all these years?"

He smiled and said, "Take it from me, it ain't always gonna be that easy. If you're thinkin' it will, better think again."

When you begin you never know what's comin' around the bend
It doesn't always work like you think it does
There's times when you laugh, times when you fight
And son, if I'm hearing you right, you wanna know
How did I find someone I could always love

Chalk it up to beginner's luck
