Cause I was born lonely down by the riverside
Learned to spin fortune wheels, and throw dice
I was just thirteen when I had to leave home
Knew I couldn't stick around, I had to roam
Ain't good looking, but you know I ain't shy
Ain't afraid to look it girl, i-in the eye
So if you need some lovin, and you need it right away
Take a little time out, and maybe I'll stay
But I got to ramble (ramblin' man) hey
I got to gamble (gamblin' man)
Got to, got to ramble (ramblin' man)
I, I was born a ramblin' gamblin' man
"Got any nails?"
"Got any flies?"
