“Bound to Lose” Lyrics

Sailing down the river
To New Orleans
To New Orleans
Bet my money by the gamblin’ rules

Goin’ from-a town
Town to town
Town to town
Come and lay your dollar down

Bound to lose (Bound to lose)
Bound to lose
Bound to lose
Riverboat gambler’s bound to lose

Here comes Suzie
With her hair piled high
With her hair piled high (Real, real high)
Sister Sue keep a-watchin’ her eye

Hookers and hustlers
Follow her ’round
Follow her down
Come and lay your dollar down

Bound to lose (Bound to lose)
Bound to lose
Bound to lose
Riverboat gambler’s bound to lose

Wheelin’ and a-dealin’
’Round she goes
’Round she goes
Where she stops, nobody knows

Listen good people
If you want the news
If you want the news
Riverboat gambler’s bound to lose

Bound to lose (Bound to lose)
Bound to lose
Bound to lose
Riverboat gambler’s bound to lose

[break]

Rouge on faces
Fancy clothes
Those fancy clothes
Money comes, and money goes

Moon and stars
Sometimes I feel
Sometimes I feel
He’s not, she’s not, is not real

Is not real (Is not real)
Is not real
Is not real
He’s not, she’s not, is not real

Bound to lose (Bound to lose)
Bound to lose
Bound to lose
Riverboat gambler’s bound to lose
