Willie Was A Gamblin' Man
Recorded by Ferlin Husky
Written by Dallas Frazier

C F
Three men down on the river bank
C F
Rollin' them gamblin' bones
C F
I say one named Johnny one named Samson
G7 C
And the other was Willie Jones
G7 C
The other was Willie Jones

F
Well Willie was a rollin' and shootin' them dice
C F
He said this time I better not lose
C F
Johnny's done won my new Stetson hat
C G7 C
And momma needs a new pair of shoes
G7 C
Momma needs a new pair of shoes

F
Willie (Willie was a gamblin' man)
C G7
Willie was a gamblin' man
C F
Well he rolled them bones all over the land
C F
Willie was a gamblin' man
C G7 C
Willie was a gamblin' man

F
Well Willie got mad at Johnny
C F
He jerked out a big 44
C F
He said you've got my Stetson and all of my money
C G7 C
But you ain't a gonna get no more
G7 C
I know you ain't a gonna get no more

F
He said Johnny boy I'm gonna kill you
C F
I'm gonna shoot you and that ain't all
C F
When my bullet goes through your head
C G7 C
I'm gonna bet which a way you're gonna fall
F C G7 C
I'm gonna bet which a way you're gonna fall

Repeat #2

F
Well the sheriff he came got poor Willie
C F
Took him to the hanging tree
C F
He said sheriff I'll bet ye that I'm still kickin'
C G7 C
When the sun goes down on me
G7 C
When the sun goes down on me

F
Everybody went to the graveyard
C F
To watch 'em bury poor Willie Jones
C F
And on the top of his grave they had a great big sign
C G7 C
Said here lies a gambler and his bones
G7 C
Here lies Willie Jones

Repeat #2

G7 C
Yes Willie was a gamblin' man
G7 C
I said Willie was a gamblin' man
G7 C
I said Willie was a gamblin' man
