​Gambling Man Blues

This song is by Eric Sardinas and appears on the album Devil's Train (2001).

spoken:
Well, yeah... I'll tell you about bein' a gambling man. Back at that time, I'd take my guitar, make me a few nickels, and then I'd get to get down to the game and gamble, and that's where I could break some up, and then I'm gone.

Honeyboy singin':
I'm a gambling man'
Gamblin'... all night long
Well, I'm a gambling man'
Gamble... all night long

spoken:
Yeah

I'm gonna gamble this time, baby
Bring my good gal home

Gamblin' down in new orleans
Gamblin' down on rampart street
Well, I gamble in new orleans
Gamble down on rampart street
I fell in love with a little ol' girl
And her name was peggy dee

spoken:
Yeah... play it, Honeyboy

Yeah... yeah

Sardinas singin':
I'm a gamblin' man
Gamble from door to door
I'm a gamblin' man
Gamble from door to door

Yes, I'm gonna keep on gamblin'
My little girl don't love me no more

spoken:
Yeah

I'm a gambling man'
Gamble from town to town
I'm a gambling man'
Gamble from town to town

Yes, ain't gonna stop my ways, baby
Till I bring my bull calf home

All right!

All right, here we go, now...

spoken:
Yeah!
All right, man...
Is that all right, Honeyboy?
You sound all right to me!

Honeyboy singin':
Gamblin' down in loosianna
Gamblin' down on old man needle's sugar farm
Gamblin' down in loosianna
Gamblin' down on old man needle's sugar farm
You know I can't never get lucky
To win my train fare home

spoken:
Yeah, yeah! Charlie Patton used to do that, too... you see what I mean? You're right in there... you know it, you're right in there! Yeah, that sounds good...
