Kentucky Gambler
Recorded by Merle Haggard
Written by Dolly Parton

G C
I wanted more from life than four kids and a wife
G D7 G
And a job in a dark Kentucky mine
C
A twenty acre farm with a shackey house and barn
G D7 G
That’s all I had and all I left behind

C
But at gambling I was lucky and so I left Kentucky
G D7 G
And left behind my woman and my kids
C
Into the gay casinos in Nevada's town of Reno
G D7 G
This Kentucky Gambler planned to get rich quick

C D7 G
Kentucky gambler who's gonna love your woman in Kentucky
C G D7 G
Yeah and who's going to be the one to give her everything she needs
C D7 G
Kentucky gambler who's going to raise your children in Kentucky
C G D7 G
And who's going to keep them fed and keep them shoes on their feet

C
There at the gambler's Paradise Lady luck was on my side
G D7 G
And this Kentucky gambler played just right
C
Yeah I won at everything I played I really thought I had it made
G D7 G
But I should have quit and gone on home that night

C
But when you love the green backed dollar sorrow always bound to follow
G D7 G
And Reno's dreams fade into neon amber

And lady luck she'll lead you on
C
She'll stay a while and then she's gone
G D7 G
You better go on home Kentucky gambler

C
But a gambler never seems to stop till he loses all he's got
G D7 G
And with a money hungry fever I played on
C
I played till I'd lost all I'd won I was right back where I'd started from
G D7 G
Then I started wanting to go home

C D7 G
Kentucky gambler there ain't nobody waiting in Kentucky
C G D7 G
When I ran out somebody else walked in
C D7 G
Kentucky gambler looks like you ain't really very lucky
C G D7 G
And it seems to me a gambler loses much more than he wins
D7 G
Much more than he wins
