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 gambler's roll, on a gambler's 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 gambler's roll
On a gambler's, gambler's roll
