Chris Ledoux – Riverboat Gambler lyrics

I cut my teeth on a poker chip my daddy left layin' behind
The said he was a dealin' from the bottom but my mama said they were lyin'
So I never stay in one place long I'm just a natural born rambler
My mama was a Dodge City dance hall girl and my daddy was a riverboat gambler
So don't kiss my cheek and look at me with stayin' in your eyes
For marriage is like shootin' against a pair of loaded dice
You better throw your hand in for you just can't hold this rambler
My mama was a Dodge City dance hall girl and my daddy was a riverboat gambler

I'll say you're the closest thing to love I've ever known
But without the feel of the paddle wheel I'd never be at home
Well I must go for I just heard the river call this rambler
My mama was a Dodge City dance hall girl and my daddy was a riverboat gambler
So don't kiss my cheek...
My mama was a Dodge City dance hall girl and my daddy was a riverboat gambler
