River Boat Gambler
(Johnny Slate, Dan Morrison)

I cut my teeth on a poker chip
My daddy left layin' behind
The said he was a dealin' from the bottom
But my momma said they were lyin'
So I never stay in one place long
I'm just a natural born rambler
My mamma was a Dodge City dance hall girl
And my daddy was a riverboat gambler

CHORUS
So don't kiss my cheek and look at me
With stayin' in your eyes
For marriage is like shootin' against
A pair of loaded dice
You better throw your hand in
For you just cant hold this rambler
My mamma was a Dodge City dance hall girl
And my daddy was a riverboat gambler

I'll say you're the closest thing
To love I've ever known
But without the feel of the paddle wheel
I'd never be at home
Well I must go for I just heard
The river call this rambler
My mamma was a Dodge City dance hall girl
And my daddy was a riverboat gambler

CHORUS

My mamma was a Dodge City dance hall girl
And my daddy was a riverboat gambler
