Gambler's Roll  (Album Version)

Gambler's Roll (Album Version)

The Allman Brothers Band

The dealer sits alone in the dark
Cigarette shines on his very last card
Everything he had, watched it come and go
On a gambler's roll

Cold wind blows a young girl's world apart
She bet it all, she bet it all on the jack of hearts
Gained her freedom but lost her soul
On a gambler's roll, on a gambler's roll

You know the gambler - he rides, rides on a fools' train
Ah, tradin' silver for gold
Oh, but his luck will change; time takes it's toll
On a gambler's roll

The dealer knows it's just about his last game
Not even she knows all the sorrow and pain
As the forty-five deals the fatal blow
On a gambler's roll, on a gambler's roll

You know the gambler - he rides, rides on a fools' train
Tradin' silver for gold
Ah, but his luck will change; time takes it's toll
On a gambler's roll, on a gambler's roll
On a gambler's roll, on a gambler's roll
On a gambler's, gambler's roll
