​Prowlin' Gambler Blues

This song is by Buddy Moss and appears on the compilation album Buddy Moss Vol. 1 1933 (1992).

Well now, they say about a gamblin' man, the workin' man, he stays down south
They know what they say about a gamblin' man, the workin' man, he stays down south
I ain't got no job, I can't go back to my woman's house

Now boys, a woman will love you, until all your money is gone
Your woman will love you, until all your money is gone
But I think I'll pass it up, and try to make it all alone

Now the woman I love, she done put me out of doors
Now the woman I love, she done put me out of doors
But I'm going back south, where the weather suits my clothes

I got a woman down south, that woman is my aim
I got a woman down south, that woman is my aim
But I ain't gonna tell nobody, she might have a hard workin' man

I'm going down south, to see what I can do
Now I'm going down south, just to see what I can do
There ain't nothin' in the northern states, that a poor gamblin' man can do
