Hank Thompson

Capo 2nd fret

(D) I am a rovin' gambler, I've gambled all around
Where-(G) ver I meet with a (D) deck of cards
I (G) lay my money (D) down
(I Lay my money down; (A) Lay my money (D) down.)

I had not been in 'Frisco, many more weeks than three
'Til I fell in love with a pretty little girl
She fell in love with me
(Fell in love with me; Fell in love with me.)

She took me in her parlor, she cooled me with a fan
She whispered low in her mother's ear
"I love this gamblin' man."
("Love this gamblin' man."; "Love this gamblin' man.")

"Oh! daughter, Oh! dear daughter, how could you treat me so?
And leave your dear old mother
And with a gambler go?"
("With a gambler go?"; "With a gambler go?")

"Oh mother, Oh dear mother, you know I love you well
But the love I have for this gamblin' man
"No human tongue can tell."
("No human tongue can tell."; "No human tongue can tell.")

I left that gal in 'Frisco, and I wound up in Maine
I met up with a gamblin' man
We got in a poker game
(Got in a poker game; Got in a poker game.)

He put his money in the pot and dealt the cards around
I saw him deal from the bottom of the deck
So I shot that gambler down
(Shot that gambler down; Shot that gambler down.)

Well, now I'm down in prison, I got a number for my name
The warden said as he locked the door
You've gambled your last game
(Gambled your last game; Gambled your last game.)
