Kenny Rogers - The Gambler - Remastered 2006 Lyrics

On a warm summer's evenin'
On a train bound for nowhere
I met up with a gambler
We were both too tired to sleep
So we took turns a-starin'
Out the window at the darkness
Boredom overtook us
And he began to speak

He said, "Son, I've made a life
Out of readin' people's faces
Knowin' what the cards were
By the way they held their eyes
So if you don't mind my sayin'
I can see you're out of aces
For a taste of your whiskey
I'll give you some advice

So I handed him my bottle
And he drank down my last swallow
Then he bummed a cigarette
And asked me for a light
And the night got deathly quiet
And his face lost all expression
That If you're gonna play the game, boy
You gotta learn to play it right

You got to know
When to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run
You never count your money

When you're sittin' at the table
There'll be time enough for countin'
When the dealin's done

Every gambler knows
The secret to survivin'
Is knowin' what to throw away
Knowin' what to keep

'Cause every hand's a winner
And every hand's a loser
And the best that you can hope for
Is to die in your sleep

And when he finished speakin'
He turned back toward the window
Crushed out his cigarette

And faded off to sleep
And somewhere in the darkness
The gambler - he broke even
And in his final words I found
An ace that I could keep
You've got to know
When to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em

Know when to walk away
Know when to run
You never count your money
When you're sittin' at the table
There'll be time enough for countin'
When the dealin's done

You got to know
When to hold 'em
(When to hold 'em)
Know when to fold 'em
(When to fold 'em)
And know when to walk away
Know when to run

You never count your money
When you're sittin' at the table
There'll be time enough for countin'
When the dealin's done
You got to know
When to hold 'em

Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away
Know when to run
You never count your money
When you're sittin' at the table
There'll be time enough for countin'
When the dealin's done
