​The Gambler

This song is by Baker Gurvitz Army and appears on the album Elysian Encounter (1975).

You, you are a gambler
By nature it's in your blood
You, you are a gambler
By nature it's in your blood

When it runs from a gun
No mistake, just an ache
When you lose you can't fake
No mistake can be made
No mistake can be made

You, you are a liar
And when failure comes you weep
You, you are a liar
And when failure comes you weep

Like a sheep follows sheep
To be shed of their skin
You're a liar and a liar cannot win
It's a sin they cannot win
It's a sin

Have you ever woken from a dream
And looked around and seen your life
In front of you
Without a home to call your own

You, you are a gambler
You, you are a liar
You, you are a blind man
You, you are a gambler
You, you are a liar
You, you are a blind man

You, you are a blind man
And a blind man cannot see, oh no
You, you are a blind man
And a blind man cannot see

That it's wrong just to kill for religion
Can't be real if it brings so much hate
Can it really be man's fate
Can it be
Can it be
Can it be
Can it be
Can it be
