Urban, Keith - Winning Lyrics




One day I was on the ground
When I needed a hand
And it couldn’t be found
I was so far down
That I couldn’t get up, you know

One day I was one of life’s losers
Even my friends were my accusers
And in my head I was lost before I began
I had a dream
But it turned to dust
And what I thought was love
That must have been lust
I was living in style
When the walls fell in
When I played my hand
I looked like a joker
Turn around
Fate must have woke her
Cause lady luck she was
Waiting outside the door

[Chorus]
I’m winning, I’m winning
I’m winning, oh yeah
I’m winning
And I’m winning
And I don’t intend on losing again

Too bad it belonged to me
It was the wrong time
And not meant to be
It took a long time
But I knew for now
I can see the day
That I believe for
Friends agree there’s a need
To play the game
And to win again, let me tell ya now

[Repeat Chorus]

Now I had a dream
But it turned to dust
And what I thought was love
That must have been lust
I was living in style
When the walls fell in
When I played my hand
I looked like a joker
Turn around
Fate must have woke her
Cause lady luck she was
Waiting outside the door
Yes she was how, hey

[Chorus x2]

  11. German Escobar

    Thanks for the info. I knew it didn't sound like santana's creative style.

    SouthVA 757

    German Escobar - If you want their creative style, listen to the version Santana recorded when Alex Ligertwood was their vocalist. Can't mistake Carlos's guitar.

  12. Jamie Post

    this one of the best versions of this song great job keith

  13. Bada Hoohoo

    The only good thing in the whole song is the guitar playing. Not a good cover.

  14. David Tait

    Ditto donedave. Love Russ Ballard's original.

  15. MARDEE AGEN

    I heard this on Fox and friends this morning. they only clipped his chorus of "Im winning" and i knew exactally who it was. Keith did great on this cover. I also love Steve Winwood's version, but keiths guitarism is much BETTER... Thanks for posting. 🤗

  16. MeloDee Faith Mileez

    OMG.....UR Thee FONdoe faith.....WHat A Beautiful Mix UP

  17. donedave

    technically it’s not a Santana cover, it’s a Russ Ballard cover- he wrote the song. Santana & Nona Hendryx have also covered the song!

  18. Mabinia Essex

    @joevs21001 thank you for providing the history, Russ is still writing great songs for himself as well as other artists...as always x.

  19. Steven J Schuler

    Santana's version is great but I prefer Keith's guitar work much better Santana's guitar

  20. amanda_vee26

  21. Ben Grieve

    @drglinski Yeah, I don't like Santana's version as much as Keith's.

  22. Stephen Pepper

    @drglinski it doesnt suck. you probably did not grow up listening to santana

  23. Stephen Pepper

    incredible tone...

  24. sally h

    LOVE!!!!!

  25. drglinski

    Why is it that this version is great while the Santana version sucks? I hate the Santana version....

  26. joevs21001

    Not a bad cover of Russ Ballard's "Winning" which was also covered by Carlos Santana's band in the early 1980's sung by Alex Ligertwood who was Santana's lead singer for many years. Many people don't know that Russ Ballard (of the 70's group ARGENT) actually wrote and originally recorded "Winning" around 1979 I believe it was. Winning was actually a song he had written early in the 1970's but didn't record until later after he had left Argent. Thanks Russ for this wonderful song!

  27. JoeDoakes1015
