Recorded by Eddy Arnold
Written by Elie Seigmeister

 
C 
I am a roving gambler I've  
Em 
gambled all  
C 
around
 
Whenever I need with the  
Am 
deck of cards I  
F 
lay my money  
C 
down
 
I've gambled down in Washington I've  
Em 
gambled over in  
C 
Spain
 
I'm on my way to  
Am 
Tennessee to  
F 
play in my last  
C 
game
 
I had not been in Washington  
Em 
many more weeks than  
C 
three
 
When I fell in love with a  
Am 
pretty little maid
 
Who  
F 
fell in love with  
C 
me
 
She took me in her parlor she  
Em 
cooled me with her  
C 
fan
 
She whispered low in her  
Am 
mother's 
 
ear
 
I  
F 
love that gambling  
C 
man
 
Oh daughter oh dear daughter how  
Em 
could you treat me  
C 
so
 
To leave your dear old  
Am 
mother and  
F 
with the gambler  
C 
go
 
Oh mother my dear mother you  
Em 
know I love you  
C 
well
 
But the love I have for the  
Am 
gambling 
 
man
 
No  
F 
human tongue can  
C 
tell
 
I wouldn't marry a farmer he's  
Em 
always in the  
C 
rain
 
I wouldn't marry a  
Am 
railroad man who's  
F 
always on a  
C 
train
 
I wouldn't marry a doctor he's  
Em 
always gone from  
C 
home
 
All I want is the  
Am 
gambling man for he  
F 
won't leave m
C 
 
alone
 
I hear the train it's coming  
Em 
a coming round th
C 
 
curve
 
A whistlin' and a  
Am 
blowin' and  
F 
strainin' every  
C 
nerve
 
Oh mother oh dear mother I'll  
Am 
tell you  
F 
if I  
C 
can
 
If you ever see me  
Am 
coming back I'll  
F 
be with that gambling  
C 
man
