Lyrics

  • I once was a gambler,
  • I bet my money wrong.
  • I once was a gamble,
  • I bet my money wrong.
  • Look for my baby,
  • Mess up my happy home.
  • Look for my money,
  • Look for my watch and chain.
  • Look for my money,
  • You know she pawned my watch and chain.
  • Told the DA,
  • Even your name.
  • I’m through with gambling,
  • Some other fool can have my room,
  • I’m through with gambling,
  • Some other fool can have my room.
  • Might die of whiskey,
  • But gambling sure won’t be my doom.
