    Lyrics

    Jenny was raised in a house of cards
    A face that could hijack your breath
    The legs of a thoroughbred
    That's what they said of Jenny Ledge

    Into the fray with a Royal Flush
    Determined to bring home the gold
    And drink from the fountainhead
    That's what she said, my Jenny Ledge

    How I wished I could answer her prayer
    To be held by an honest man
    How I wished I could always be there
    But my love was not in her plans

    Tempted by half-Elvis, half man-about-town
    And a life of ease
    She runs off with the Vegas King
    I've nowhere to stand, I can't understand
    Why Jenny won't wait for me

    Later I held her and asked her why
    "This is my house and this is my car
    and this is my bed!"
    That's what she said, my Jenny Ledge

    Just a slave to security
    She has forgotten the urge to win
    All she has is a king and a pair
    And a tear for what might have been

    Jenny was raised in a house of cards
    A face that could hijack your breath
    The legs of a thoroughbred
    That's what they said of Jenny Ledge

    Into the fray with a Royal Flush
    Determined to bring home the gold
    And drink from the fountainhead
    That's what she said, my Jenny Ledge

    How I wished I could answer her prayer
    To be held by an honest man
    How I wished I could always be there
    But my love was not in her plans

    Tempted by half-Elvis, half man-about-town
    And a life of ease
    She runs off with the Vegas King
    I've nowhere to stand, I can't understand
    Why Jenny won't wait for me

    So this is the ballad of Jenny Ledge
    My anger unspoken
    My eyes are learning to cry instead
    Love is dead for Jenny Ledge

    Once she stood with the world at her feet
    And the love of an honest man
    Now she sleeps while the world marches by
    In the care of an also-ran

    Jenny was raised in a house of cards
    A face that could hijack your breath
    The legs of a thoroughbred
    That's what they said of Jenny Ledge

    Into the fray with a Royal Flush
    Determined to bring home the gold
    And drink from the fountainhead
    That's what she said, my Jenny Ledge

    How I wished I could answer her prayer
    To be held by an honest man
    How I wished I could always be there
    But my love was not in her plans

    Tempted by half-Elvis, half man-about-town
    And a life of ease
    She runs off with the Vegas King
    I've nowhere to stand, I can't understand
    Why Jenny won't wait for me...
