This week’s Song Lyric Sunday theme should be real easy, as there are a lot of songs that involve Cards/Dice/Gamble/Lose/Win and I’ve chosen quite an all.time Bob Seger favorite of mine. Most people recognize Bob Seger from the second half of the ’70’s, his pretty much heyday, but this song is a smidge or two before that era. It’s all thanks to JIM .
Yeah,I’m gonna tell my tale come on,
Give a listen,
Cause I was born lonely down by the riverside
Learned to spin fortune wheels, and throw dice
And I was just thirteen when I had to leave home
Knew I couldn’t stick around, had to roam
Ain’t good lookin’, but you know I ain’t shy
Ain’t afraid to look a girl, in the
So if you need some lovin, and you need it right away
Take a little time out, and maybe I’ll stay
Then I got to ramble (ramblin’ man)
Lord I got to gamble (gamblin’ man)
Oh I got to ramble (ramblin’ man)
And I was born a ramblin’ gamblin’ man.
I hope you got money, I’m sure gonna need some
I ain’t around to love you now, and I got to run
I got to keep moving, never gonna slow down
You can have your funky world, see you ’round
I got to ramble (ramblin’ man)
Yeah, I got to gamble (gamblin’ man)
Ohh, i got to ramble (ramblin’ man)
I was born a ramblin’ gamblin’ man.
