Subject: tab: Allman Bro's; Gamblers Roll


I hope this tab comes close to the way the Allamn Bro's are doin' that song.
Just two words about the solo and the lyrics: VERY POOR!!!
I've had not so much time to tab the song. So take the solo tab as an "as is"
kind of thing (just a view ideas how to build up a solo to the underlying
chords... and any HELP concerning the lyrics are very welcome!!!

rides on a fools train
train..... silver.......alone
all is what will change
time takes it's toll
on a gamblers roll
on a gamblers roll
on a gamblers roll
