Gambler's Blues - Live 1999

From the Albums:
* Paradise in distress
* Last blast of the century

The table's smokin'
I got money to burn
Get ready to spin that wheel again
I came to gamble – not to dance tonight
So cut the cards and deal 'em nice
All or nothing' roll the dice
Son of a gun – there's somethin' goin' on
Yeah, today's my lucky day
Lady luck please come my way
I got money to burn – money to burn tonight
And as the dealer – calls the play
I feel the shiver – comin' over me
Feel it in my fingertips allright
Cards slidin' faster and slicker
Than a hooker's lips in the neon light
I do what I do – I'm a gamblin' man
I gamble on life and I gamble on love
Gamble on luck from above anyway I can
Seven card stud – with a full-house hand
I'm a jackpot maniac, my friend
Tequila shots – one more chance
For the blackjack gamblin' man
The devil bets – he bets on hell
And seven come eleven right
Holdin' eights and aces thight
The gambler bets on heaven tonight
The devil bets – he bets on hell
Goin' in for the kill
Holding eights and aces tight
It's the gambler's bet tonight
On heaven tonight
