I lost my heart to a gambler
Riverboat Dale was his name
He gambled from sunrise til sundown
Jack of Diamonds was his game

[Chorus:]
Jack of Diamonds
Jack of Diamonds
You brought me misery
Jack of Diamonds
Jack of Diamonds
You stole my love from me

He stacked his chips on the table
He had his gun by his side
They watched him as he shuffled
But no one saw him hide

[Chorus:]

He won a thousand dollars
Then he got ready to leave
But as he picked up his winnings
The Jack fell from his sleeve

[Chorus:]

They shot him, yes, they shot him
They killed my loving Dale
And they nailed the Jack of Diamonds
On his lonely grave

Jack of Diamonds
Jack of Diamonds
He brought me misery
Jack of Diamonds
Jack of Diamonds
He stole my love from me

Jack of Diamonds
Jack of Diamonds
Jack of Diamonds
Jack of Diamonds...
