I PUT EVERYTHING… ON THE LINE    I RISKED… ALL OF MINE  ALL MY NICKELS… AND ALL MY DIMES    GOT TO EASE MY WORRIED… MIND

IʼVE BEEN DOWN AND IʼVE… BEEN UP  CUP HALF FILLED WITH ANY LUCK  GAMBLE FOR THE THINGS I LOVE  STILL I CANʼT… GET ENOUGH

GUESS THAT I HAVE BEEN.. A GAMBLIN MAN  GUESS THAT I AM… A GAMBLIN MAN

ʻN THESE OLD SHOES HAVE TREAD… SO FAR  PUSHIN’ ROUND THIS OLD.. GUITAR
IʼM GOIN FOR THAT WILD.. CARD  WATCHIN’ FOR MY LUCKY… STAR

SOMETIMES YOU MIGHT LOSE… TO GAIN
SOME THINGS YOU CAN NEVER… CHANGE
SOME HAVE HEART… AND SOME HAVE BRAINS
SOME HAVE STRENGTH ENOUGH… TO GO AGAINST THE GRAIN

I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN.. A GAMBLIN MAN I WILL ALWAYS BE… A GAMBLIN MAN

BREAK ME OUTTA JAIL.. I HAVE NO CASH TO PAY THE BAIL.. FIND MYSELF IN CHECKMATE.. ʻCAUSE THE LAW THOUGHT THEYʼD ARREST ME.. SO IʼLL MAKE MY GET-AWAY.. ALWAYS READY, HOLD ON STEADY

SEEMS LIKE FOREVER… FOR CENTURIES…  SINCE IʼVE BEEN OUT EXPLORING… ADVENTURING

IʼM GOIN OUT ON THE TOWN.. TURN MYSELF UPSIDE DOWN WHIRLWIND KNOCK ME DOWN.. PICK ME UP, & ROLL AROUND IʼM GONNA SING MY FAVORITE SONGS.. RUN A MUCK, ALL NIGHT LONG. LATE UNTIL THE DAWN.. ʻCAUSE I DONʼT KNOW WHEN IʼLL BE GONE

BEFORE THE NIGHT IS THROUGH.. THEREʼS STILL ONE THING I MUST DO.. GOT TO FEEL BRAND NEW.. IʼVE BEEN PAYING ALL MY DUES.. THINK THAT IʼLL EMBRACE.. JUST HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS PLACE ALL THE TIME AND SPACE… THATʼS BEEN WRITTEN ON MY FACE

LATELY THE NIGHTS AND DAYS… GO SO FAST CYCLES AND CYCLES… THAT COME TO PASS

MY PHILOSOPHY.. KEEPS ME GETTIN LOST AT SEA

IʼVE BEEN WORKING… IʼVE BEEN PLAYING
IʼVE BEEN THINKING… WHAT IʼM SAYING
IF YOU DONʼT KNOW… WHERE YOU ARE GOING
AND YOUʼRE NOT SURE…. WHAT IT IS YOUʼRE KNOWING. FEEL FREE TO COME AND JOIN ME MY FRIEND. ON THE DELTA, WHERE THE RIVER BENDS LAUGHING, TALKING, SINGIN SONGS ALL DAY. WITH A GENTLE BREEZE, BLOWIN’ OUR WAY

ON THE RIVERBANK AGAIN… I ALWAYS SEEM TO FIND MYSELF THERE ON THE RIVERSIDE… IʼM FORGETTING ALL MY CARES
I WATCH THE CURRENT GO… DRIFTING BY
AND THE BIRDS JUST GO… FLYING BY

ON THE LEVEE.. ACROSS THE WAY
YOU CAN HEAR A TRAIN COMING THIS WAY
RIDIN THE OLD RUSTY RAILS
A CRAZY ENGINEER TELLIN HIS TALES
HEʼS BEEN AROUND SO LONG, HE CANʼT REMEMBER
HE KEEPS PUSHIN’ ON AND SHOVELIN’ CINDER
HE WAVES HIS HAND, ʻCAUSE HEʼS JUST PASSING THROUGH. THE MAN JUST RIDES THE LINES.. KNOWING WHAT TO DO

ON THE RIVERBANK AGAIN… I ALWAYS SEEM TO FIND MYSELF THERE ON THE RIVERSIDE… IʼM FORGETTING ALL MY CARES
I WATCH THE CURRENT GO… DRIFTING BY
AND THE BIRDS JUST GO… FLYING BY

ON THE RIVERBANK.. ON THE RIVERBANK. ON THE RIVERBANK AGAIN
