On a warm summer's evenin',
On a train bound for nowhere
I met up with the gambler.
We were both too to sleep.
So we took turns a-starin'
Out the window at the darkness.
When boredom overtook us,
He 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 their 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 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.
He said, 'If
You're play the game, boy,
You gotta learn to play it right.'

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

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

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

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