LETRA
I've gambled down in Washington
And I've gambled up in Maine
I'm going down into Georgia
To knock down my last game
I'm a gambling man, man, man
I'm a gambling man
Well I had not been in Washington many more weeks than three
When I fell on love with a pretty little girl
And she fell in love with me
I'm a gambling man
I'm a gambling man
I'm a gambling man, man, man
I'm a gambling man, man, man
I'm a gambling man, man, man
I'm a gambling man
I'm a gambling man, man, man
I'm a gambling man, man, man
I'm a gambling man, man, man
I'm a gambling man
She took me in her parlour
Cooled me with her fan
She said, "Oh mother mother
I'm in love with a gambling man
He's a gambling man, man, man
He's a gambling man"
She said, "Oh daughter, daughter
How could you treat me so
And leave your dear old mother
And with that gambler go"
He's a gambling man, man, man
He's a gambling man
He's a gambling man, man, man
He's a gambling man, man, man
He's a gambling man, man, man
He's a gambling man
He's a gambling man, man, man
He's a gambling man, man, man
He's a gambling man, man, man
He's a gambling man
"I would not marry a farmer
He's always in the red
I'd rather marry a gambling man
With a gold watch and chain"
He's a gambling man
He's a gambling man
"And I would not marry a railroad man
Here's the reason why
I never knew a railroad man
Who wouldn't tell his wife a lie"
He's a gambling man
He's a gambling man
He's a gambling man, man, man
He's a gambling man, man, man
He's a gambling man, man, man
He's a gambling man
He's a gambling man, man, man
He's a gambling man, man, man
He's a gambling man,
He's a gambling man, man, man
He's a gambling man, man, man
He's a gambling man, man, man
He's a gambling man
I hear that train a-coming
Coming round the curve
Whistling and a-screaming
Straining every nerve
He's a gambling man
He's a gambling man
He's a gambling man, man, man
He's a gambling man, man, man
He's a gambling man, man, man
He's a gambling man,
