Ramblin' Gamblin' Man Lyrics

by Bob Seger

Yeah, gonna tell my tale
come on,
come on.
Give a listen,
Cause I was born lonely
down by the riverside.
Learned to spin fortune wheel
and throw dice.
And I was just thirteen
when I had to leave home.
Knew I couldn't stick around,
had to roam.
I ain't good lookin',
but you know I ain't shy.
Ain't afraid to look a girl
in the eye.
So if you need some lovin'
and you need it right away,
just take a little time out
and maybe I'll stay.

Then I got to ramble,
ramblin' man.
Lord I got to gamble,
gamblin' man.
Ahh I got to ramble,
ramblin' man.
And I was born a ramblin' gamblin' man.

I hope you got money,
Sho gonna need some.
Ain't gonna run on lovin'
and I got to run.
I got to keep movin',
never gonna slow down.
You can have your funky world,
see ya 'round.

I got to ramble,
ramblin' man.
Yeah I got to gamble,
gamblin' man.
Ahh I got to ramble,
ramblin' man.
I was born a ramblin' gamblin' man.
