Kenny Rogers – The Gambler
      G                            C                 G
On a warm summer's evenin' on a train bound for nowhere,
   C                 G                  C                   D
I met up with the gambler; we were both too tired to sleep.
    G                                 C               G
So we took turns a starin' out the window at the darkness
      C             G          D                 G
'til boredom overtook us, and he began to speak.

          G                               C                  G
He said, "Son, I've made a life out of readin' people's faces,
     C                    G                   C                 D
And knowin' what their cards were by the way they held their eyes.
        G                                 C                   G
And if you don't mind my sayin', I can see you're out of aces.
       C               G              D               G
For a taste of your whiskey I'll give you some advice."

      G                             C                    G
So I handed him my bottle and he drank down my last swallow.
 C                  G               C                D
Then he bummed a cigarette and asked me for a light.
         G                                  C                   G
And the night got deathly quiet, and his face lost all expression.
                  C                      G               D
Said, "If you're gonna play the game, boy, ya gotta learn
To play it right.

            G                       C               G
You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em,
 C              G           C             D
Know when to walk away and know when to run.
           G                              C              G
You never count your money when you're sittin' at the table.
                  C            G          D                G
There'll be time enough for countin' when the dealin's done.

 D                              C             G
Ev'ry gambler knows that the secret to survivin'
    C                G             C                 D
Is knowin' what to throw away and knowing what to keep.
        G                           C              G
'Cause ev'ry hand's a winner and ev'ry hand's a loser,
         C                   G                D           G
And the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep."

     G                                 C                       G
And when he'd finished speakin', he turned back towards the window,
 C                 G               C           D
Crushed out his cigarette and faded off to sleep.
     G                               C               G
And somewhere in the darkness the gambler, he broke even.
     C              G                  D              G
But in his final words I found an ace that I could keep.
