"Son of a Rotten Gambler" as written by and Chip Taylor....
And his love will be his vision
He'll take you where you stand
Will you stand your life by his
And help the boy become a man?

He be the son of his father
His father, the teacher
Teachin' love and honesty
Being his own manhandler
Or the son of
The son of a run of the mill, run rotten gambler

Will the devil be getting to you
As you look back over what you've done?
What you've done was it for reason or for rhyme?
Was it just for fun?

He be the son of his father
His father, the teacher
Teachin' love and honesty
And being his own man-handler
Or the son of
The son of a run of the mill, run rotten gambler

Back on the road now, you can lose your head
There ain't no kingdom for the gamblin' man
You know the road now and you've made your stand
When his eyes shine upon you, shine upon you

Will he be the son of his father?
His father, the teacher
Teachin' love and honesty
Being his own man-handler
Or the son of
The son of a run of the mill, run rotten gambler

Will he be the son of his father?
His father, the teacher
Teachin' love and honesty
And being his own man-handler
Or the son of
The son of a run of the mill, run rotten gambler

Will he be the son of his father?
His father, the teacher
Teachin' love and honesty
And being his own man-handler
Or the son of
The son of a run of the mill, run rotten gambler
