The Gambler Guitar Chords

 

          G
On a warm summer’s eve

         C                          G
On a train bound for nowhere

  C                            G
I met up with the gambler

                C                            D
We were both too tired to sleep

     G
So we took turns a-starin’

               C                       G
Out the window at the darkness

       C                       G
The boredom overtook us,

D                           G
And he began to speak

                 G
He said, “Son, I’ve made a life

            C                           G
Out of readin’ people’s faces

C                              G 
Knowin’ what the cards were

            C                                  D
By the way they held their eyes

         G
So if you don’t mind me sayin’

          C                            G
I can see you’re out of aces

          C                     G
For a taste of your whiskey

      D                       G
I’ll give you some advice”

        G 
So I handed him my bottle

              C
And he drank down
        G  
my last swallow

C                                  G
Then he bummed a cigarette

        C                         D
And asked me for a light

               G
And the night got deathly quiet

               C                             G
And his faced lost all expression

                            C
Said, “If you’re gonna
             G
play the game, boy

                  D                        G
You gotta learn to play it right

                        G
You’ve got to know
                   C
when to hold ’em

                           G
Know when to fold ’em

C                        G
Know when to walk away

C                                D
And know when to run

                   G
You never count your money

                        C                    G
When you’re sittin’ at the table

                              C                  G
There’ll be time enough for countin’

D                               G
When the dealin’s done

G
Every gambler knows

                C                        G
That the secret to survivin’

    C                           G
Is knowin’ what to throw away

        C                            D
And knowin’ what to keep

             G
‘Cause every hand’s a winner

        C                        G
And every hand’s a loser

               C
And the best that
        G                       D
you can hope for is to die

               G
in your sleep

        G
And when he finished speakin’

      C                                         G
He turned back toward the window

C                           G
Crushed out his cigarette

        C                    D
And faded off to sleep

         G
And somewhere in the darkness

        C                              G
The gambler he broke even

       C                   G
But in his final words

                    D                          G
I found an ace that I could keep
