I am a gambler God knows I’ve been around
I lived it up and now I’m livin’ it down
I’ve played some hunches boys and I’ve played some blues
But a man with nothin’ ain’t got Nothing To Lose.

I thought my woman was my ace in the hole
But when she left me I was out of control
I just had bad luck now since I got the news
But a man with nothin’ ain’t got Nothing To Lose.

[Chorus:]
Old Lady Luck she ain’t nobody’s friend
And Old Dame Fortune broke my heart in thee end
Love was the one thing I tried not to abuse
But a, a man with nothin’ ain’t got Nothing To Lose.

I like casinos and I play slot machines
I lost a fortune if you know what I mean
Those one arm bandits was the wrong thing to choose
But a man with nothin’ ain’t got Nothing To Lose.

[Chorus 2:]
I lost it all I don’t have no more to give
The doctor told me I don’t have too long to live
My friends all say they’d hate to be in my shoes
But a, a man with nothin’ ain’t got Nothing To Lose.

Nothing To Lose
Nothing To Lose
Nothing To Lose
Nothing To Lose
Nothing To Lose.
