Howdy all....

I got off my duff and finished this one.
For the record: NO!....I've never sat at a casino table and gambled. :)

Many thanks to Ken for his creative input and great axe playing.
Thanks for giving it a listen and hope you find it worthy of your time.
Have a great weekend.

"Gamblin Man" 112 bpm Key of C

https://www.soundclick.com/artist/default.cfm?bandID=897733 (first song on the list)

Verse 1:
I had my taste of money knowing when to say ‘hit me’ or ‘stay’.
Every day was sunny, an easy life of beaches and babes.
Some will say I’m lucky, others say I’m out on the prowl. (you betcha’, he just might getcha’)
Nothing lasts forever. I dread the day my luck runs out. (hold on ‘cause it’s comin’)
Chorus:
Gamblin’ was my game, it’s a risky occupation. I never let them see me sweat.
I always read the table, never get impatient and count the cards before I bet.
Verse 3:
Pretend I’m passin’ through, just another face in the crowd.
Stay calm, cool, collected, this is not the place to run afoul. (you know better, could lose your treasure)
Chorus 2:
Gamblin’ was my game, I tried to walk away. Lord knows how hard that I tried.
Tables full of strangers, a life could be in danger. Knowing every exit is wise.
Bridge: Db/ Eb/ Fm7// Db/ C7/ Fm7/ G7/
SOLO:
(chorus music) Cm/ Bbm/ Eb/ Fm7/ Cm/ Bbm/ C//
Verse 4:

My mind is all a jumble, I don’t know when to raise or to fold.
Got myself in trouble with all the wrong people I owe.
Chorus 2
Outro: bridge music – fade to end

Hi chulaivet,
Great recording.
I love the lyrics. Words of a real gambler. Even the card counting.
If you are saying that you are not a gambler, it might be Ken, hahahaha!
Wonderful work on guitar by Ken!!!
Love this song.
Thank you.
Rene

Howdy tele...
Thanks for giving it a spin, the kind comment and reminding me of my daft moment of not including the links.
Much appreciated.

Howdy Rene...
No...I've never sat at any of the casino card tables but that doesn't keep me from trying to write creatively about subjects I haven't experienced. :)
Ha....I'll have to talk with Ken regarding your observation.
Thanks very much for taking the time to listen and all kind words.

Thank you both again....
