Gambler Blues

This song is by Melvin Jackson.

Version 1
Now (you know) I once was a gambler boys and I bet my money wrong
Now (you know) I once was a gambler boys and I bet my money wrong
I got no more money and all I got is gone

When I lose that money, sit around with my head hung down
Lose that doggone money, sit around with my head hung down
I wake up in the morning with my face all full of frown

You know I'm through with gamblin' some Jack Stropper can have my room
You know I'm through with gamblin' some Jack Stropper can have my room
Pretty woman may kill me but gamblin' won't be my doom

Well (you know) I promised by baby that I would play no more
Well (you know) I promised by baby that I would play no more
Well, I seen bad gambling follow me every place I go

Version 2 "Gold Star"
You know I once was gambler, but I bet my money wrong
You know I once was gambler, but I bet my money wrong
Now I ain't got no money, and all I got is gone

When you lose that doggone money set around with your head hang down
When you lose that doggone money and set around with your head hang down
You wake up in the morning with your face all full of frown

You know I'm through with gambling some Jack Stropper can have my room
Boys, I'm through with gambling some other hustler can have my room
Well, now drinking may kill me, but gambling won't be my doom

Well, I gambled so long till I thought that I would never change
Boys, I gambled so long till I thought I would never change
Well, I ain't gonna gamble no more, I swear I'm gonna save my change
