Lyrics The Gambler

On a warm summer's evening
On a train bound for nowhere
I met up with the gambler
We were both too tired to sleep
So we took turns a-staring out the window at the darkness
'Till boredom overtook us and he began to speak
He said
Son I've made a life out of reading people's faces
And knowing what their cards were by the way they held their eyes
So if you don't mind my saying
I can see you're out of aces
For a taste of your whiskey
I'll give you some advice
So I handed him my bottle and he drank down my last swallow
Then he bummed a cigarette and asked me for a light
And the night got deathly quiet and his face lost all expression
Said if you're gonna play the game boy you gotta learn to play it right
You got to know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away and know when to run
You never count your money when you're sitting at the table
There'll be time enough for counting when the dealing's done
Every gambler knows that the secret to survivin' is knowing what to throw away and knowing what to keep
'Cos every hand's a winner and every hand's a loser
And the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep
And when he finished speaking
He turned back towards the window
Crushed out his cigarette and faded off to sleep
And somewhere in the darkness the gambler, he broke even
But in his final words I found an ace that I could keep
You got to know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away and know when to run
You never count your money when you're sitting at the table
There'll be time enough for counting when the dealing's done
You got to know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away and know when to run
You never count your money when you're sitting at the table
There'll be time enough for counting when the dealing's done
You got to know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away and know when to run
You never count your money when you're sitting at the table
There'll be time enough for counting when the dealing's done
