Eddie Cochran – Gambler's Guitar lyrics

My guitar, my guitar...
Tell of the hearts that this vagabond has broken
Tell of the fun that I've had
Tell of the lovin' and the laughin' and the jokin'
Back when I was glad, Lord-Lord, back when I was glad
Tell it pretty, guitar

Tell of the days when the riverboat was turnin'
Lord, what a gambler's spree
Tell her of the hotty way ol' lady luck was burnin'
Everyone but me, yeah lucky me, everyone but me
Now, guitar

Tell of the time when I took my biggest gamble
In a game where hearts were high
Tell of the funny way my heart began to ramble
When she caught my eye, yeah when she caught my eye
Tell it pretty, guitar

Tell all the folks that this life's a game of poker
A fool and gold must part
But in this hectic world the biggest fool's the joker
Who gambles with his heart, Lord-Lord, who gambles with his heart
One last time guitar

And that's the story of a gambler's guitar...
