The Lyrics

Lord, I was born a gamblin' man
Trying to earn some winnings and doing the best I can
I'm never really leavin', casinos are so grand
Yeah I was born a gamblin' man

My father was a gambler down in Georgia
And he won enough to go on vacation
And I was born in Las Vegas, to follow his great luck
Always end up with 21

Lord, I was born a gamblin' man
Bettin' all my money and winnin' all that I can
Casinos really love me, but never spoil my fun
'Cause I'm a lucky gamblin' man

I'm playing poker, getting flush this morning
Keeping right along the winning streak
I'm always risking all that I've got toward the jackpot, yeah
Oh no, I lost all of my cash

Lord I was born a gamblin' man
Tryin' to win some money, yeah doin' the best I can
Now I've learned a lesson, you can't just always win
But I was born a gamblin' man
