Gamblin' Man - Lonnie Donegan ***


I've gambled down in Wasington
and I've gambled up in Maine
I'm going down into Georgia
To knock down my last game
I'm a gamblin' man, man, man
I'm a gamblin' man

Well I'd not been in Washington
Many more weeks than three
When I fell in love with a pretty little girl
and she fell in love with me
I'm a gamblin' man
I'm a gamblin' man

I'm a gamblin' man, man, man
I'm a gamblin' man, man, man
A gamblin' man, man, man
I'm a gamblin' man

I'm a gamblin' man, man, man
A gamblin' man, man, man
I'm a gamblin' man, man, man
I'm a gamblin' man

She took me in her parlour
Cooled me with her fan
She said oh mother mother
I'm in love with a gamblin' man
He's a gamblin' man, man, man
He's a gamblin' man

She said oh daughter, daughter
How could you treat me so
Leave your poor old mother
With that gambler go
He's a gamblin' man, man, man
He's a gamblin' man

He's a gamblin' man, man, man
He's a gamblin' man, man, man
A gamblin' man, man, man
He's a gamblin' man

He's a gamblin' man, man, man
A gamblin' man, man, man
A gamblin' man, man, man
Hey a gamblin' man

I would not marry a farmer
He's always in the rain
I'd rather marry a gamblin' man
With a gold watch and chain
He's a gamblin' man
He's a gamblin' man

and I would not marry a railroad man
Here's the reason why
I've never known a railroad man
Wouldn't tell his wife a lie
He's a gamblin' man
He's a gamblin' man

He's a gamblin' man, man, man
A gamblin' man man man
A gamblin' man, man,man
He's a gamblin' man

He's a gamblin' man, man, man
A gamblin' man, man, man
A gamblin' man, man
How about Jimmy

He's a gamblin' man, man, man
A gamblin' man, man, man
A gamblin' man, man, man
A gamblin' man

He's a gamblin' man, man, man
A gamblin' man, man, man
A gamblin' man, man
How about

I hear that train a-coming
Coming round the curve
Whistling, a-screaming
straining every nerve
A gamblin' man man man
A gamblin' man

He's a gamblin' man, man, man
A gamblin' man, man, man
A gamblin' man, man, man
A gamblin' man

He's a gamblin' man, man, man
A gamblin' man, man, man
A gamblin' man, man, man
A gamblin' man
