"Roving Gambler" lyrics

Roving Gambler

I am a roving gambler
I've gambled all around
Wherever I meet with the deck of cards
I lay my money down
I lay my money down
I lay my money down

I had not been in Dallas
Many more weeks than three
Till 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 her fan
And she whispered low in a mother's ear
I love this gambling man
Love this gambling man
Love this gambling man

Oh daughter, oh dear daughter
How could you treat me so
And leave your dear old mother
And with the gambler go
With the gambler go
With the gambler go

Oh mother, oh dear mother
You know I love you well
But the love I have for this gambling man
No human tongue can tell
No human tongue can tell
No human tongue can tell

I've left that gal in Dallas
I wound up in Maine
I've met up with a gambling 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 get a jack on the bottom of the pack
So I shot tham 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 gambled your last game
Gambled your last game
Gambled your last game

Gambled your last game
Gambled your last game
Gambled your last game
Gambled your last game
