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
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
