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

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

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

You got to know when to hold 'em
A             E
know when to fold 'em
A            E
know when to walk away
and know when to run
You never count your money
            A              E
when you're sittin' at the table
       A                    E
There'll be time enough for countin'
B7                 E
when the dealin's done

Every gambler knows
          A           E
that the secret to survivin'
   E               D
is knowin' what to throw away
    G                B7
and knowing what to keep
'Cause every hand's a winner
    A               E
and every hand's a loser
        A                  E
and the best that you can hope for
       B7            E
is to die in your sleep"

And when he'd finished speakin'
   A                        E
he turned back towards the window
crushed out his cigarette
and faded off to sleep
And somewhere in the darkness
     A                 E
the gambler, he broke even
    A              E
But in his final words I found
   B7                E
an ace that I could keep
