On a warm summer's evenin',
On a train for nowhere
I met up with the gambler.
We were both too tired to sleep.
So we a-starin'
Out the at the darkness.
When overtook us,
He began to speak.

He said, 'Son, I've made my life
Out of readin' people's faces.
Knowin' what the cards were
By the way they held eyes.
So if you don't mind my sayin',
I can see you're out of aces,
For a taste of 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 got quiet,
And his face lost all expression.
He said, 'If
You're gonna play the game, boy,
You gotta to play it right.'

You've got to know
to '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'
the dealin's done.

Now gambler knows
The to survivin'
Is knowin' what to throw away
And knowin' what to keep.
'Cause every hand's a winner
And every hand's a loser
And the you can hope for
Is to die in your sleep.'

And he finished speakin',
He turned back toward the window,
out his cigarette
And faded off to sleep.
And somewhere in the darkness,
The gambler he even.
And in his final words I found
An ace that I could keep.

You've got to know
to hold 'em,
Know 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've got to know
When to hold 'em,
Know when to 'em
Know when to walk away,
Know when to run.
You count your money
When you're sittin' at the table.
There'll be time enough for countin'
When the dealin's done.
