The Roving Gambler lyrics

Oscar Isaac

[Verse 1]
I am a roving gambler, I've gambled down in town
Wherever I meet with a deck of cards I lie my money down
Lie my money down, lie my money down
Wherever I meet with a deck of cards I lie my money down

[Verse 2]
I've gambled down in Washington; I've gambled over in Spain
I'm on my way to Georgia to knock down my last game
Knock down my last game, knock down my last game
I'm on my way in Georgia to knock down my last game

[Verse 3]
I had not been in Washington, 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
Fell in love with a pretty little girl, she fell in love with me

[Verse 4]
She took me in her parlour, she cooled me with her fan
She whispered low in her momma's ear, "I love this gambling man."

[Verse 5]
"Well Daughter, my dear daughter, how could you treat me so?
To leave your grand old mama, and with this gambler and go?
With a gambler go, with a gambler go?
To leave your grand old mama, and with this gambler and go?"

[Verse 6]
"Well Mama, my dear Mama, you know I love you well
But the love I have for the gambling man, no human tongue can tell
No human tongue can tell, no human tongue can tell
But the love I hold for the gambling man, no human tongue can tell

[Verse 7]
"So goodbye goodbye Mama, I'll write you if I can
If ever I come this way again, I'll be with the gambling man
Be with the gambling man. Be with the gambling man
If ever I come this way again, I'll be with the gambling man"
