The Gambler
Kenny Rogers (Don Schlitz, 1978)


     Swiss Army Strum
4/4 | d - D u - u d u |
      1   2 &   & 4 &

Intro
| [C] | [F] | [C] | [F]
On a [C] warm summer's evenin', on a [F] train bound for [C] nowhere
I [C] met up with the gambler, we were both too tired to [G7] sleep
So [C] we took turns a-starin', out the [F] window at the [C] darkness
Till [F] boredom over- [C] took us, [G] and he began to [C] speak

He said [C] “Son I've made a life, out of [F] readin' peoples' [C] faces
And [C] knowin' what their cards were, by the way they held their [G7] eyes
So if [C] you don't mind my sayin', I can [F] see you're out of [C] aces
For a [F] taste of your [C] whiskey, I'll [G] give you some ad- [C] vice” [C]

So I [C] handed him my bottle, and he [F] drank down my last [C] swallow
[C] Then he bummed a cigarette, and asked me for a [G7] light
And the [C] night got deathly quiet, and his [F] face lost all ex- [C] pression
Said “if you're [F] gonna play the [C] game boy, ya gotta [G]  learn to play it [C] right

Chorus
You got to [C] know when to hold 'em, [F] know when to [C] fold 'em
[F] Know when to [C] walk away, and know when to [G] run
You never [C] count your money, when you're [F] sittin' at the  [C] table
There'll be [C] time e- [F]nough for [C] countin', [G] when the dealin's [C] done [C]

Key Change
| [D] | [D] |
[D] Every gambler knows, that the [G] secret to sur- [D] vivin'
Is [D] knowin' what to throw away, and knowin' what to [A7] keep
'Cause [D] every hand's a winner, and [G] every hand's a [D] loser
And the [G] best that you can [D] hope for is to [A] die in your [D] sleep.”

And [D] when he'd finished speakin', he [G] turned back toward the [D] window
[D] Crushed out his cigarette, and faded off to [A7] sleep
And [D↓] somewhere in the darkness, the [G↓] gambler he broke [D]↓] even
But [G↓] in his final [D↓] words I found an [A↓] ace that I could [D] keep

Chorus
You got to [D] know when to hold 'em, [G] know when to [D] fold 'em
[G] Know when to [D] walk away, and know when to [A] run
You never [D] count your money, when you're [G] sittin' at the [D] table
There'll be [D] time e- [G] nough for [D] countin', [A] when the dealin's [D↓] done

*Acapella - Clap Beats 2 & 4
You got to know when to hold 'em (when to hold 'em)
Know when to fold 'em (when to fold 'em)
Know when to walk away, and know when to run
You never count your money, when you're sittin' at the table
There'll be time enough for countin', when the dealin's done

You got to [D] know when to hold 'em, [G] know when to [D] fold 'em
[G] Know when to [D] walk away, and know when to [A] run
You never [D] count your money when you're [G] sittin' at the [D] table
There'll be [D] time e- [G] nough for [D] countin', [A] when the dealin's [D↓] done

| [G] | [D7] | [G] | [G]
I was [G] dancing with my | darlin' to the [G7] Tennessee [C] Waltz
When an [G] old friend I | happened to [D7] see [D7]

The [G] beautiful [D7] Tennessee [G] Waltz [G]

She comes [G] dancing through the | darkness to the [G7] Tennessee [C] Waltz
And I [G] feel like I'm | falling a- [D7] part [D7]
And it's [G] stronger than | drink, and it's [G7] deeper than [C] sorrow
This [G] darkness she's [D7] left in my [G] heart [G]

I re- [G] member the [B7] night and the [C] Tennessee [G] Waltz
'Cause I [G] know just how | much I have [D7] lost [D7]
Yes I [G] lost my little | darlin' the [G7] night they were [C] playing

Me and [Bm] Susie had so much [Bm] fun
Holdin' [C] hands and skimmin' [C] stones
Had an [D7] old gold Chevy and a [D7] place of my own

[Bm] Susie went and left us for some [Bm] foreign guy
[C] Long nights cryin' by the [C] record machine
[D7] Dreamin' of my Chevy and my [D7] old blue jeans
But they'll [G] never kill the thrills we've [G] got
Burnin' [Bm] up to the Crocodile [Bm] Rock
Learnin' [C] fast till the weeks went [C] past
We really [D7] thought the Crocodile [D7] Rock would last, well

[G6] Although a [Gdim7] tear may be [Am] ever so [E7] near,
That's the [Am] time you must keep on trying,
[Cm] Smile, what's the use of crying
[G] You'll find that life is still worth- [Am] while,
If [D7] you'll just [G] smile [G]
Extend by playing through as insrumental
Then Sing Through Once Again

I [D] had a dream so big and loud
I [D] jumped so high I touched the clouds
[G] Who-o-o-o-o-o-oah [G] (who-o-o-o-o-o-ah)

I [D] stretched my hands out to the sky
We [D] danced with monsters through the night
[G] Who-o-o-o-o-o-oah [G] (who-o-o-o-o-o-ah)

I'm [D] never gonna look back, who-oah
I'm [D] never gonna give it up, no-o-o
[G] Please don't wake me [G↓] now...

[D] (Oo! ooo-oo-oo-oo [D]Oo!)
This is gonna be the best day of my [G] li-i-ife
My [G] li-i-i-i-i-i-i-ife
[D] (Oo! ooo-oo-oo-oo [D]Oo!)
This is gonna be the best day of my [G] li-i-ife
My [G↓] li-i-i-i-i-i-i-ife

[D] [D] [D] [D]
[G] [G] [G] [G↓]

I [D] howled at the moon with friends
And [D] then the sun came crashing in
[G] Who-o-o-o-o-o-oah [G] (who-o-o-o-o-o-ah)

But [D] all the possibilities
No [D] limits just epiphanies
[G] Who-o-o-o-o-o-oah [G] (who-o-o-o-o-o-ah)

I'm [D] never gonna look back, who-oah
I'm [D] never gonna give it up, no-o-o
[G] Just don't wake me [G↓] now

[D] (Oo! ooo-oo-oo-oo [D] Oo!)
This is gonna be the best day of my [G] li-i-ife
My [G] li-i-i-i-i-i-i-ife
[D] (Oo! ooo-oo-oo-oo [D] Oo!)
This is gonna be the best day of my [G] li-i-ife
My [G↓] li-i-i-i-i-i-i-ife

[D] [D] [D] [D]
[G] [G] [G] [G↓]

BRIDGE:
[D↓] I hear it calling [D↓] outside my window
[D↓] I feel it in my [D↓] soul (soul)
The [D↓] stars were burning so bright
The [D↓] sun was out 'til midnight
[D↓] I say we lose con- [D↓] tro-o-ol (contro-o-o-o [D↓] ol)

This is gonna be the best day of my [G] li-i-ife
My [G↓] li-i-i-i-i-i-i-ife

[D] This is gonna be, this is gonna be, this is [D] gonna be,
... the best day of my [G] li-i-ife
[G] Everything is looking up, everybody up now
[D] (Oo! ooo-oo-oo-oo [D] Oo!)
This is gonna be the best day of my [G] li-i-ife
My [G] li-i-i-i-i-i-i-ife [D↓]
