gambler, gambler lyrics – elf

i gotta tell ya about the blues
i gotta tell ya just how i lose
ain’t got no money
but i’ll straighten up my head at the cosmo now

gambler, gambler
chicken in the first degree
gambler, gambler
chicken in the first degree
i never been a gambler
so please don’t messin’ me

hey, jury, jury
i tell you story, true
ah, listen, jury, jury
tell you story true
the jury found me guilty
don’t know what to do

i was playing in boston
say, up in old st. lou
surrounded by the fbi
for something i didn’t do
now my baby left me
left me all alone
judge said, “son, you ain’t going home”

gambler, gambler
chicken in the first degree
well, i’ve never been a gambler
so please don’t messin’ me
oh, no, no, no

oh, gambler, gambler
chicken in the first degree
gambler, gambler
chicken in the first degree
well, i’ve never been a gambler
so please don’t messin’ me
