I'M A RAMBLER, I'M A GAMBLER c

I'm a rambler, I'm a gambler, I'm a long way from home;
And if you don't like me, just leave me alone.
I'll eat when I 'm hungry , I'll drink when I'm dry,
And if the whiskey don't kill me, I'll live till I die.

If the ocean was whiskey and I was a duck,
I'd dive to the bottom and never come up.
But the ocean ain't whiskey and I ain't no duck,
So I'll play Jack of Diamonds and trust to my luck.

Rye whiskey, rye whiskey, before me I see,
You killed my granddaddy, now durn you, try me.
Rye whiskey, rye whiskey, rye whiskey I cry,
If I don't get rye whiskey, I surely will die.

An alternate last line goes: If a limb don't fall on me, I'll live till I die.
