"Riverboat Gambler" as written by and Jacob Brackman Carly Simon....
Riverboat gambler
Drinking alone on the prow
Chasing your Bourbon with Tennessee gin
The big game's about to begin

Riverboat gambler
Hiding that Ave up your sleeve
I can see through all that debonaire style
The irony bending your smile

And I won't tip your hand
I won't do you in
I want to stay near you
I want you to win

Riverboat gambler
You can defy all the odds
You can draw diamonds to fill out your flush
You can find someone to trust

And I won't steal your chips
I won't steal your pride
Won't you take me on faith
Won't you let me inside

Riverboat gambler
Under our velvet and lace
You're an old vagabond, I'm a poor waif
Let's make a place that's safe

Riverboat gambler
Come on and let me inside
