Paul Campbell

I am a roving gambler. I've gambled all around.
Whenever I see a deck of cards, I lay my money down. I lay my money down.

I hadn't been in the city many more days than three
When I fell in love with a pretty little girl and she fell in love with me. She fell in love with me.

This train don't carry no gamblers, this train. (Repeat)
This train don't carry no gamblers, no crap shooters, no midnight ramblers,
This train don't carry no gamblers, this train.

She took me to her parlor. She cooled me with her fan.
Cried, "Daddy, Daddy, oh, Daddy, dear, I'm in love with a gambling man. I'm in love with a gambling man.

This train don't carry no gamblers, this train. (Repeat)
This train don't carry no gamblers, no crap shooters, no midnight ramblers,
This train don't carry no gamblers, this train.

I am a roving gambler. I've gambled all around.
Whenever I see a deck of cards, I lay my money down. I lay my money down.
I lay my money, yeah, I lay it down.
