Tumbling Dice

Lyrics: Jagger, Richard
Music: Jagger, Richard

Played by Phil Lesh and Friends in 2007.

Women think I'm tasty, but they're always trying to waste me
And make me burn the candle right down
But baby, baby, I don't need no jewels in my crown

'Cause all you women is low down gamblers
Cheating like I don't know how
But baby, baby, there's fever in the funk house now
This low down bitching got my poor feet a-itching
Don't you know you know the duece is still wild

Baby, I can't stay, you got to roll me
And call me the tumbling dice

Always in a hurry, I never stop to worry
Don't you see the time flashing by
Honey, got no money
I'm all sixes and sevens and nines
Say now baby, I'm the rank outsider
You can be my partner in crime

But baby, I can't stay
You got to roll me and call me the tumbling
Roll me and call me the tumbling dice

Oh, my, my, my, I'm the lone crap shooter
Playing the field every night

But baby, I can't stay
You got to roll me and call me the tumblin' dice
[etc]
