Lies Don’t Mean Nothin’ To A Rambler

 

Lies don’t mean nothin’ to a gambler

When he’s tryin’ to stay afloat with a bad hand.

He’ll bluff you if he’s able, and cheat you if he can.

And look you in the eye and call you friend.

 

And lies don’t mean nothin’ to a rambler

You’ll never see again…

 

Lies don’t mean nothin’ to a preacher

When he’s passing the collection plate around.

He’ll wield the name of Jesus like an outlaw with a gun.

Hold up your hands to heaven while he’s shakin’ you down.

 

And lies don’t mean nothin’ to a rambler

When it’s time to get out of town…

 

Lies don’t mean nothin’ to a lover.

‘Cause a lover’s just got one thing on his mind.

He’ll tell you what you want to hear, and then be on his way.

And leave a little note on your window blind.

 

And lies don’t mean nothin’ to a rambler,

But you knew that last night…

 

Lies don’t mean nothin’ to a rambler

‘Cause a rambler never sticks around for long.

There’s always one more chance, and always one more town.

And someone new who hasn’t heard his songs.

 

And lies don’t mean nothin’ to a man

Who’s already gone.

 

Now don’t go lookin’ for that rambler,

‘Cause he’s already gone…
