The Gambler - Lyrics & Chords


Good m orning Mister Railroad man.
"What  time do your trains roll  by?"
"At  nine-sixteen and two forty-four
"And  twenty-five minutes till  five."

"It's nine-sixteen and two-forty-four,
"Twenty-five minutes till five,
"Thank you Mr. Railroad man,
"I want to watch your trains roll by."

Standing on a platform,
Smoking a cheap cigar
Waiting for an old freight-train
That carries an empty car.

Well, I pulled my hat down over my eyes,
And I walked across the track,
And I caught me the end of an old freight-train,
And I never did come back.

I sat down in a gamblin' game,
And I could not play my hand,
Just thinkin' about that woman I  love
Run away with another man.

Run away with another man, Poor Boy,
Run away with another man,
I was thinking about that woman that I love,
Run away with another man.
