Golden Earring – Gambler's Blues lyrics

From the Albums:
* Paradise in distress
* Last blast of the century

The table's smokin'
I got money to burn
Get ready to spin that wheel again
I came to gamble - not to dance tonight
So cut the cards and deal 'em nice
All or nothing' roll the dice
Son of a gun - there's somethin' goin' on
Yeah, today's my lucky day
Lady luck please come my way
I got money to burn - money to burn tonight
And as the dealer - calls the play
I feel the shiver - comin' over me
Feel it in my fingertips allright
Cards slidin' faster and slicker
Than a hooker's lips in the neon light
I do what I do - I'm a gamblin' man
I gamble on life and I gamble on love
Gamble on luck from above anyway I can
Seven card stud - with a full-house hand
I'm a jackpot maniac, my friend
Tequila shots - one more chance
For the blackjack gamblin' man
The devil bets - he bets on hell
And seven come eleven right
Holdin' eights and aces thight
The gambler bets on heaven tonight
The devil bets - he bets on hell
Goin' in for the kill
Holding eights and aces tight
It's the gambler's bet tonight
On heaven tonight
