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
