Man on the line
Play the game, again
Ev'rybody's gonna lose
And I'm gonna win

Gonna get rich quick
This is my lucky day
So, stick around baby
N' ev'ryhting will be okay

Well, I had a buck
When I went to the track
Had twenty grand
When I came back

Gonna get rich quick
This is my lucky day
So, stick around baby
N' ev'ryhting will be okay

(saxes & instrumental)

Well, I know a horse
That's good as gold
Run like a Cadillac
I been told

Gonna get rich quick
This is my lucky day
Oh, stick around baby
N' ev'ryhting will be okay

Gonna get rich quick
This is my lucky day
Gonna get rich quick
This is my lucky day
Well, I'll stea,l a-beg, an borrow
Ev'rything will be okay.

I was lucky to hear this, thanks for posting The KING of ROCK N ROLL. LOVE HIM

Linda Lamb

One of my favorites, and little known. This was his first rca recording? Long before he hit the big time. Great lyrics and rhythm.

Kev R

Actually his 1st recording was in 1951 the song is called Taxi Blues - get rich quick is his 3rd recording my friend.

sav

So much like Roy Brown. There is argument about the date of this recording but it was either January or February in 1952.

Nathaniel Ledoux

Elvis is thé King of rock n roll ... Little Richard is thé greatest piano player who live'd and hes alive and kicking it ... Love little Richard im à big fan

Tim Carr

In the r&r domain L.R. had stiff competition for the greatest piano player from Jerry Lee Lewis. I prefer the pianist Floyd Cramer. There have been classical pianists who would roll over those three.
