Lyrics

I am a rovin' gambler I've gambled all around Wherever I meet with a deck of cards I lay my money down 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 had not been in Washington Many more weeks than three 'Til I fell I love with a pretty little girl She fell in love with me She took me in her parlor She cooled me with her fan She whispered low in her mother's ear I love this gamblin' man Love this gamblin' man Love this gamblin' man Oh daugther, oh dear daughter How could you treat me so To leave your dear old mother And with the gambler go Oh mother, dear mother You know I love you well But the love I hold for the gamblin' man No human tongue can tell No human tongue can tell No human tongue can tell I wouldn't marry a railroad man This is the reason why I never seen a railroad man That wouldn't tell his wife a lie Oh mother, oh dear mother I'll tell you if I can I'll be with the gamblin' man I am the rovin' gambler I've gambled all around Wherever I meet with a deck of cards I lay my money down Lay my money down Lay my money down
