Gambler Blues by Lil' Son Jackson

Gambler Blues - Lil' Son Jackson,
DGDGBE tuning.

Now (you know) I once was a gambler boys and I bet my money wrong
Now (you know) I once was a gambler boys and I bet my money wrong
I got no more money and all I got is gone

When I lose that money, sit around with my head hung down
Lose that doggone money, sit around with my head hung down
I wake up in the morning with my face all full of frown

You know I'm through with gamblin' some Jack Stropper can have my room
You know I'm through with gamblin' some Jack Stropper can have my room
Pretty woman may kill me but gamblin' won't be my doom

Well (you know) I promised by baby that I would play no more
Well (you know) I promised by baby that I would play no more
Well, I seen bad gambling follow me every place I go
