Jim Lowe – 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, oh back when I was glad
Tell it pretty, my guitar

Tell her of the days when the riverboat was turnin'
Oh, what a gambler's spree
Tell of the hotty way ol' lady luck was burnin'
Everyone but me, yes everyone but me

Speak of the time when I took my biggest gamble
In a game where hearts were high
Speak of the funny way my heart began to ramble
When she caught my eye, yes when she caught my eye

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

That's the story of a gambler's guitar
