The Overtones – Gambling Man lyrics

I met you once, I loved you twice
That's the way this tale begins
I played my hand, I rolled the dice
Now I'm paying for my sins
I got some bad addiction baby it's you yeah yeah that's right
And I feel you taking over me
Could luck be a lady in here tonight

Chorus

My odds are stacked
I've never been a gambling man
I've never had the winning hand
But for you I'd lose it all
My odds are stacked
I've never been a gambling man
I've never had the winning hand
But for you I'd lose it all
(Baby I'd lose it all)

Baby
Oh Could you be the queen of hearts
Or the devil in disguise
With every move
I'm blinded by those diamonds in her eyes
I got some bad addiction baby it's you yeah yeah that's right
And I feel you taking over me
Could luck be a lady in here tonight

Chorus

My odds are stacked
I've never been a gambling man
I've never had the winning hand
But for you I'd lose it all
My odds are stacked
I've never been a gambling man
I've never had the winning hand
But for you I'd lose it all
I'm raptured in your sweet lovin but it feels just like a curse
You're beneath my skin I start tremblin with this love so dangerous
Place your bets I want you place your bets
Why don't you just place your bets on me
