The Lyrics

And I rip myself off again. So what?
Lord, I was born a gamblin' man.
Tryin' to do some winnin' and doin' the best I can.
So when it's time for leavin', I hope you'll understand
that I was born a gamblin' man.

My father dealt cards in Atlantic City.
He wound up facing down a mobster's gun.
And I was born in the back seat of a commuter bus
headed out to Mohegan Sun.

Lord, I was born a gamblin' man.
Tryin' to do some winnin' and doin' the best I can.
So when it's time for leavin', I hope you'll understand
that I was born a gamblin' man.

(guitar break)

I'm on my way to Las Vegas this mornin'.
I'm leavin' out of Airport JFK.
They're always havin' a good time out in Nevada, Lord
and for those cocktails, I don't have to pay.

Lord, I was born a gamblin' man.
Tryin' to do some winnin' and doin' the best I can.
So when it's time for leavin', I hope you'll understand
that I was born a gamblin' man.

Lord, I was born a gamblin' man.
Lord, I was born a gamblin' man.
Lord, I was born a gamblin' man.
Lord, I was born a gamblin' man.

(guitar fadeout)
I realize that the comparatively recent opening of Mohegan Sun means the narrator ain't yet old enough to drink OR gamble -- legally. In the immortal words of the Japanese lawyer, "Sosumi."

You copied my idea, I did the same title and parody of the same song! This one's OK, but I think mine is better! :-D

Michael, if you ever come out to Las Vegas, look me up. I only live two blocks from the Flamingo on Koval
