Gambler's Roll
by Gov't Mule



The dealer sits alone in the dark
A cigarette shines on his very last card
Everything he had, he watched it come and go
On a Gambler's roll

A cold wind blows a young girl's world apart
She bet it all on the jack of hearts
She gained her freedom, but she lost her soul
On a gambler's roll

The Gambler he rides, rides on a fool's train
Trading silver for gold
But his luck will change, time takes it toll
On a gambler's roll

The dealer knows, it's just about his last game
Not even she knows the sorrow and the shame
As the .45 deals a fatal blow
On a gambler's roll

The Gambler he rides, rides on a fool's train
Trading silver for gold
But his luck will change, time takes it toll
On a gambler's roll
