Roving Gambler Chords

   
Capo 4


D          
I am a roving gambler I gambled all around

Whenever I meet with a deck of cards
               
I lay my money down
                   G
Lay my money down, lay my money down

D
I had not been in Washington many more weeks than three

I met up with a pretty little girl
    
She fell in love with me
                      G
Fell in love with me, fell in love with me

D
She took me in her parlour, she cooled me with her fan

She whispered low in her mother's ear
  
I love that gambling man
                        G
Love that gambling man, love that gambling man

D
Oh daughter oh dear daughter how can you treat me so?

Leave your dear old mother
   
And with a gambler go
                   G
With a gambler go, with a gambler go

D
My mother oh dear mother you can not understand
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/billie_joe_and_norah/roving_gambler_crd_ver_2.html ]
If you ever see me a coming back
     
I'll be with a gambling man
                     G
With a gambling man, with a gambling man

D
I left her here in El Paso and I wound up in Maine

I met up with a gambling man
 
Got in a poker game
                     G
Got in a poker game, got in a poker game

D
We put our money in the pot and dealt the cards around

I saw him deal from the bottom of the deck
  
And I shot that gambler down
                       G
Shot the gambler down, shot the gambler down

D
Well, now I'm in the jailhouse got a number for my name

The Warden said as he locked the door
   
You've gambled your last game
                        G
Gambled your last game, gambled your last game

D
I am a roving gambler I gambled all around

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