The Roving Gambler
Recorded by Eddy Arnold
Written by Elie Seigmeister

C Em C
I am a roving gambler I've gambled all around
Am F C
Whenever I need with the deck of cards I lay my money down
Em C
I've gambled down in Washington I've gambled over in Spain
Am F C
I'm on my way to Tennessee to play in my last game

Em C
I had not been in Washington many more weeks than three
Am
When I fell in love with a pretty little maid
F C
Who fell in love with me
Em C
She took me in her parlor she cooled me with her fan
Am
She whispered low in her mother's ear
F C
I love that gambling man

Em C
Oh daughter oh dear daughter how could you treat me so
Am F C
To leave your dear old mother and with the gambler go
Em C
Oh mother my dear mother you know I love you well
Am
But the love I have for the gambling man
F C
No human tongue can tell

Em C
I wouldn't marry a farmer he's always in the rain
Am F C
I wouldn't marry a railroad man who's always on a train
Em C
I wouldn't marry a doctor he's always gone from home
Am F C
All I want is the gambling man for he won’t leave me alone

Em C
I hear the train it’s coming a coming round the curve
Am F C
A whistlin' and a blowin' and strainin' every nerve
Am F C
Oh mother oh dear mother I'll tell you if I can
Am F C
If you ever see me coming back I'll be with that gambling man
