On a warm summer's evenin',
On a train for nowhere
I met up with the gambler.
We too tired 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 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.
He said, 'If
You're gonna play the game, boy,
You gotta learn to play it right.'

You've got to know
When to 'em,
Know when to fold 'em
when to walk away,
when to run.
You never your money
When you're sittin' at the table.
There'll be for countin'
When 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 you can hope for
Is to die in sleep.'

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

You've got to know
When to hold 'em,
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to away,
Know when to run.
You never count your money
When you're sittin' at the table.
There'll be enough for countin'
When the dealin's done.

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