Yeah, gonna tell my tale
Come on,
Come on.
Give a listen,
Cause I was born lonely
Down by the riverside.
Learned to spin fortune wheel
And throw dice.
And I was just thirteen
When I had to leave home.
Knew I couldn't stick around,
Had to roam.
I ain't good lookin',
But you know I ain't shy.
Ain't afraid to look a girl
In the eye.
So if you need some lovin'
And you need it right away,
Just take a little time out
And maybe I'll stay.

Then I got to ramble,
Ramblin' man.
Lord I got to gamble,
Gamblin' man.
Ahh I got to ramble,
Ramblin' man.
And I was born a ramblin' gamblin' man.

I hope you got money,
Sho gonna need some.
Ain't gonna run on lovin'
And I got to run.
I got to keep movin',
Never gonna slow down.
You can have your funky world,
See ya 'round.

I got to ramble,
Ramblin' man.
Yeah I got to gamble,
Gamblin' man.
Ahh I got to ramble,
Ramblin' man.
I was born a ramblin' gamblin' man.
