Roving Gambler (Simon & Garfunkel)

I am a roving gambler I gamble down in town Wherever I meet with a deck of cards I lay my money down I lay my money down I lay my money down I had not been in Washington Many more weeks than three When I fell in love with a pretty little girl She fell in love with me She fell in love with me She fell in love with me She took me to her parlor She cooled me with her fan She whispered low in her mama's ear "I love that gamblin' man I love that gamblin' man I love that gamblin' man" "Oh Mother, dear Mother Why do you treat me so? The love I feel for the gambling man No human tongue can tell No human tongue can tell No human tongue can tell" "...Oh daughter, dear daughter... With a gambler go With a gambler go With a gambler go" I've gambled down in Washington I gambled down in Spain I'm going down to Georgia To gamble my last game To gamble my last game To gamble my last game Brakes on for Atlanta I am a roving gambler I've gambled down in town Wherever I meet with a deck of cards I lay my money down I lay my money down I lay my money down I had not been in Washington For many more weeks than three When I fell in love with a pretty little girl She fell in love with me She fell in love with me She fell in love with me.
