Ferlin Husky - Willie Was a Gamblin' Man

rate me

Three men down on the river bank rollin' them gamblin' bowls

I say one named Johnny one named Samson and the other was Willie Jones

The other was Willie Jones

Well Willie was a rollin' and shootin' at once he said this time I bet in a lose

Johnny's done won my new Stetson hat and mama needs a new pair of shoes

Mama needs a new pair of shoes

Willie (Willie was a gamblin' man) Willie was a gamblin' man

Willie rolled them bowls all over the land Willie was a gamblin' man

Well Willie was a gamblin' man

Well Willie got mad at Johnny he jerked out a big 44

He said you've got my stetson and all of my money but you ain't a gonna get no more

I know you ain't a gonna get no more

He said Johnny boy I'm gonna kill you I'm gonna shoot you and that ain't all

When my bullet goes thru your head I'm gonna bet a which a way you're gonna fall

I'm gonna bet a which a way you're gonna fall

Willie (Willie was a gamblin' man)...

Well the sheriff he came got poor Willie took him to the hanging tree

He said sheriff I'll bet ye that I'm still kickin' when the sun goes down on me

When the sun goes on me

Everybody went to the graveyard to watch 'em bury poor Willie Jones

And on the top of his grave they had a great big sign

Said here lies a gambler and his bowles here lies Willie Jones

Willie (Willie was a gamblin' man)...

Yes Willie was a gamblin' man I said Willie was a gamblin' man
