Bob Seger - Still The Same

"Still the Same" is a song written and recorded by the American singer Bob Seger in 1978. It peaked at number 4 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Seger has said that he has been asked for years who the song is about, and that it is actually an amalgamation of characters he met when he first went to Hollywood.


You always won every time you placed a bet You're still damn good, no one's gotten to you yet Every time they were sure they had you caught You were quicker than they thought You'd just turn your back and walk

You always said the cards would never do you wrong The trick, you said, was never play the game too long A gambler's share, the only risk that you would take The only loss you could forsake The only bluff you couldn't fake

And you're still the same I caught up with you yesterday Moving game to game No one standing in your way Turning on the charm Long enough to get you by You're still the same You still aim high

There you stood, everybody watched you play I just turned and walked away I had nothing left to say

Cause you're still the same You're still the same Moving game to game Some things never change You're still the same
