    This is without a doubt the best gambling related song of all time. And my old mate Shane MacGowan is proof positive that good things happen when you consume large quantity of Guinness, hey hey.

    "Bottle Of Smoke"

    Thanks and praises
    Thanks to Jesus
    I bet on the Bottle of Smoke
    I went to Hell And to the races
    To bet on the Bottle of Smoke

    The day being clear
    The sky being bright
    He came up on the left
    Like a streak of light
    Like a drunken fuck
    On a Saturday night
    Up came the Bottle of Smoke

    Twenty fucking five to one
    Me gambling days are done
    I bet on a horse called the Bottle of Smoke
    And my horse won

    Stewards inquiries
    Swift and fiery
    I had the Bottle of Smoke
    Inquisitions and suppositions
    I had the Bottle of Smoke
    Fuck the stewards
    A trip to Lourdes
    Might give the old fuckers
    The power of sight
    Screaming springers and stoppers
    And call out coppers
    But the money still gleams in my hand like a light

    Bookies cursing
    Cars reversing
    I had the Bottle of Smoke
    Glasses steaming
    Vessels bursting
    I had the Bottle of Smoke
    Slip a fifty to the wife
    And for each brat a crisp new five
    To give me a break on a Saturday night
    When I had the Bottle of Smoke

    Priests and maidens Drunk as pagans
    They had the Bottle of Smoke
    Sins forgiven and celebrations
    They had the Bottle of Smoke

    Fuck the Yanks
    And drink their wives
    The moon is clear
    The sky is bright
    I'm happy as a horse in shite
    Up came the Bottle of Smoke

    You know I once was a gambler, boy, but I lost my money soon
    Yes, I once was a gambler, boy, but I lost my money soon
    Yes, I lost all of my money some other, some other gambler can have my room

    You know I lost all my money, in a no good gambling game
    Yes, I lost all my money, boys, in a no good gambling game
    I was on my bad luck, kept gambling just the same

    When you lose that old no good money, you sit around with your head hung down
    When you lose that old no good money, you sit around with your head hung down
    Yeah, wake up next morning happy, I'm the best gambler in this town

    Oh for God sakes! All YOU do is repeat yourself over and over and over! You, Larry are the single worse offender of repeating yourself and the points you are attempting to make. The worse offender I have seen on this site. The worse offender I have come across on any site that I have participated on. How many times have you mentioned "poor customer service at WoV"....100? Go back and read the thread (now broken off) about the definition of professional gambler. How many ties did you make the analogy about your daughter bringing home a Professional "this" or professional "that"? All you did is repeat the same thought over and over and over.

    All the old delta blues guys learned the repeat line from Jimmy Rodgers. It's a technique still used in Rock & Roll today. Jimmy Rodgers, a white country singer, pioneered the technique.
