I've gambled down in Georgia when I was just a lad
I've gambled from the Yukon to the shores of Trinidad
I'd bet my green on anything and win 'em if I can
I've had my run of luck boy I'm a gamblin' man
I've gambled on the jumping frogs in Bear Creek Arkansas
I've bet pennies at the accident up in Omaha
It's pennies at the sidewalk in a town of Baltimore
See plenty of big auction boy but I'm a still wantin' more
I've gambled outta cut roads been jailed in Abilene
I've bet on cajun rooster fights down in New Orleans
I played the game road poker as I wheeled my big sedan
I'd bet my green on anything I'm a gamblin' man
[ guitar ]
I've gambled in Las Vegas broke the bank at Keno's Club
I made a fortune on the road playin' five cards stud
I don't brag but I'm a sharpest they call me Gold Dust Dan
I've made a bundle on gamblin' I'm a gamblin' man
Well I've bet my love on a dancin' girl that I caught her runnin' round
I guess she's just too much like me she'll never settle down
Now I'm broke and busted just playin' a losin' hand
But I'm gonna make a comeback someday I'm a gamblin' man
Yeah I'm gonna make a comeback someday I'm a gamblin' man
