G                                      G7 
I am a roving gambler I've gambled all around 
G                              G7 
Whenever I meet with a deck of cards 
      C        G    Bb C G

Lay my money down  lay my money down

G                                             G7 
I had not been in Frisco many more weeks than three 
G                             G7 
I met up with a pretty little gal 
C                     G 
She fell in love with me

Fell in love with me fell in love with me

G                                            G7 
She took me in her parlor cooled me with her fan 
G                             G7 
Whispered low in her mother's ear 
  C                  G 
I love this gambling man 
                       D                  G 
Love this gambling man love this gambling man

Oh daughter oh dear daughter how can you treat me so 
G                   G7 
Leave your dear old mother 
    C              G 
And with a gambler go 
                  D              G  Bb  C  G 
With a gambler go with a gambler go 

Verse 5 

G                                  C    G 
My mother oh my mother you can not understand 
If you ever see me a coming back 
     C                  G 
I'll be with a gambling man 
                    D               G   Bb  C  G 
With a gambling man with a gambling man

G                                      C     G 
I left her there in Frisco and I wound up in Maine 
I met up with a poker player 
    C              G 
And got in a poker game 
                    D              G 
Got in a poker game got in a poker game 

Verse 7 
                                          C     G 
We put our money in the pot and dealt the cards around 
I saw him deal from the bottom of the deck 
      C                 G 
And I shot that gambler down 
                      D                G    Bb  C  G 
Shot the gambler down shot the gambler down 

Verse 8 
                                            C      G 
Well now I'm in the jail house got a number for my name 
The Warden said as he locked the door 
       C                 G 
You've gambled your last game 
                       D                 G    Bb  C  G   
Gambled your last game gambled your last game 

                       D                 G    Bb  C  G   
Gambled your last game gambled your last game
