Blues run the game

Had an idea of illustrating songs while listening to a fav song, 'Blues run the game'. I'd only heard the Simon & Garfunkel and the Counting Crows version and it came as a surprise to find out that it was originally written by Jackson C. Frank (who I hadn't heard of and now love).
Here's the lyrics that inspired the illustrations:
Boat & Maps: 'Take a boat to England baby, maybe to Spain'
Whiskey & Gin Bottles: 'Send out for whiskey baby, send out for gin'
Sleeping person: 'When I ain't sleeping you know you'll find me crying'
Dice: 'Wherever I have played, wherever I throw those dice'.
