If anything, Lady Luck by Kenny Loggins is a song about gambling. It starts out talking about playing at a craps table with lady luck on his side.

Seven-eleven he rolled,
And all his life was a golden gamble.
You’d see him reeling it in when the odds were high.
Something supernatural, a charlatan, a mastermind,
Or some lucky lady’s design.

Oh, what the devil, it’s fun,
His lady luck was his one companion,
And by the silver and gold,
His heart had been bought and bound.
But he chanced to fall in new love,
He kissed her and he cut the tie,
And kissed his lucky lady goodbye.

Oh, spin your wheel of fortune.
Shuffle the cards, blow on the dice.
Are you with me in love,
Like you’ve been with me in life?
If I leave you for a lover,
Would you leave me far behind?

You should’ve known from the start,
She’d take no part in a love triangle.
You have to be her’s alone,
And go it on your own.
‘Cause if you’ve found a new love,
Lady Luck is gonna step aside.
So kiss your lucky lady goodbye.

Spin your wheel of fortune.
Shuffle the cards, blow on the dice.
Are you with me in love,
Like you’ve been with me in life?
If I leave you for an hour,
Would you leave me far behind?

Seven-eleven he rolled,
And all his life was a golden gamble.
You’d see him reeling it in when the odds were high.
Something supernatural, a charlatan, was a mastermind,
Or some lucky lady’s,
Or some jealous lady,
Kiss your lucky lady goodbye.
Don’t pass this way again, goodbye.
Don’t pass this way again, goodbye.
