Daddy was a gambler 
Back in seventy-two
He had a taste for the nightlife and he
 Loved his booze 
He had a woman on one arm
And a tattoo on the other 
It was hard to read I don't know what it said
Somethin' about my mother 

I stood over his shoulder back in Bakersfield 
He had some rhinestone boots with those high ridin' heels 
He bet a ton of money 
On a hand I thought was dead
When those sevens cleaned the table up
He just looked around and said

 Sometimes you win
 Sometimes you won't
 Sometimes you beat that devil  Sometimes you don't
We're all just killin' time
Til the good Lord calls us home
And the best that you can hope for is to die
With your boots on

I drive a big rig from shore to shore 
I've got a woman beside me
And my name out on the door
Can't make no money 
If I don't outrun the man
That's why you find me streakin' through the night  Catch me if you can

 Sometimes you win
 Sometimes you won't
 Sometimes you beat that devil  Sometimes you don't
We're all just killin' time
Til the good Lord calls us home
And the best that you can hope for is to die

 Sometimes you win
 Sometimes you won't
 Sometimes you outrun that devil  Sometimes you don't
We're all just killin' time
Til the good Lord calls us home
And the best that you can hope for is to die
With your boots on
With your boots on
