You're asking questions I really can't answer
You're lookin' at me with those cryin' eyes
Eyes I don't understand
You set the rules
I couldn't follow
You said I was cruel, you said I led a life that was hollow
But I never asked you to follow

I said a lot
Could never be happy with me
You said come on, let's give it a try
Why do you ask me why?
I just wanna say goodbye

I'm a gambler on a road, no woman to find, no
And at times it seems this life is just a bit too hollow
But the gamblin' life is the only life I've been used to
I'm a gambler on a road, no woman to find, no
You seem to be comin' exactly when I'm goin'
You cry for a feelin' when I have none to give
And feelings are foolish at times

I said a lot
Could never be happy with me
You said come on let's give a try
Why do you ask me why?
I just wanna say goodbye

I'm a gambler on a road, no woman to find, no
And at times it seems this life is just a bit too hollow
But the gamblin' life is the only life I've been used to
I'm a gambler on a road, no woman to find, no

I'm a gambler on a road, no woman to find, no
I'm a gambler on a road, no woman to find, no
I'm a gambler on a road, no woman to find, no
