Gambler's Blues

G.Kooymans/B.Hay/E.H.Roelfzema - Soul-R System

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 alright

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 tight

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
