Ramblin' Gamblin' Man
Bob Seger System
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 a girl, 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
