Dierks Bentley - Rovin' Gambler Lyrics

(with The Punch Brothers)



I am the rovin' gambler, I've gambled all around

Whenever I meet with the deck of cards, I lay my money down

I lay my money down, I lay my money down



Had not been in Frisco many more weeks than three

Yea I met up with a pretty little girl, she fell in love with me

Fell in love with me, fell in love with me



She took me in her parlor, she cooled me with her fan

Whispered low in her mother's ear "I love the gamblin' man"

Love the gamblin' man, love the gamblin' man



Daughter oh dear daughter, how can you treat me so

Leave your dear old mother and with the gambler go

With the gambler go, with the gambler go



I left her in Frisco and I wound up in Maine

I met up with a poker player and got in a poker game

Got in a poker game, got in a poker game



He put his money in the pot and dealt the cards around

I saw him deal with the bottom of the deck, shot the gambler down

Shot the gambler down, shot the gambler down



Now I'm down in prison, got a number for my name

The warden slammed the door and said "You've gambled your last game"

Gambled your last game, gambled your last game

Gambled your last game, gambled your last game
