I am a roving gambler I've gambled all around
Whenever I need my deck of cards I lay my money down
I lay my money down I lay my money down
I had not been in Vegas any more days than three
When I fell in love with a pretty little girl and she fell in love with me
She fell in love with me she fell in love with me
She took me in her parlor cooled me with her fan
Whispered low in mother's ear I love that gambling man
I love that gambling man love that gambling man

Now daughter oh dear daughter how come you treat me so
Would you leave your dear old mother with that gambler go
With that gambler go with that gambler go
Well now mama oh dear mama you know I love you well
But the love I have for the gambling man no human tongue can tell
No human tongue can tell no human tongue can tell
Well I've gambled down in Bakersfield gambled up in Maine
Now I came into Las Vegas to gamble my last game
Gamble my last game gamble my last game
Gamble my last game gamble my last game
