Gambler’s roll

Words by warren haynes

Music by warren haynes and johnny neal

Transcribed by b. luckett

The dealer sits alone in the dark

Cigarette shines on his very last card

Everything he had… watched it come and go

On a gambler’s roll

Cold wind blows a young girl’s world apart

She bet it all she bet it all on the jack of hearts

Gained her freedom but lost her soul

On a gambler’s roll on a gambler’s roll

You know the gambler he rides… rides on a fools train

Ah tradin’ silver for gold

Oh but his luck will change… time takes it’s toll

On a gambler’s roll

The dealer knows… it’s just about his last game

Not even she knows all the sorrow and pain

As the forty-five deals the fatal blow

On a gamblers roll…on a gamblers roll

You know the gambler he rides… rides on a fools train

Tradin’ silver for gold

Ah but his luck will change… time takes it’s toll

On a gambler’s roll… on a gambler’s roll

On a gambler’s roll… on a gamblers roll

On a gamblers… gambler’s roll
