joe ely – gambler’s bride lyrics

Loading...

h-llo, my babe. i’m back to stay
you’re sure wearing fine pretty things
but where is your ring, your ring and chain
i gave you last summer in the fallin’ rain?

“your ring,” she said, “you’ve been gone so long
i gave your ring away
i met a man, a gamblin’ man
said he would buy me the milky way.”

away, away. i’ve been away
i’ve been so many miles
where is the smile that once lit your face?
it seems a tear has taken is place

“my smile,” she sighed, with a look a little wild
“my smile it is possessed
i met a man, a gamblin’ man
said he would buy me happiness.”

i never, i never
you know i never
i never had much to give
but i gave you my heart
now where is your heart?
it was all that i had from the very start

“my heart,” she cried, ” it has been bought.”
she looked at me with fear
“i married that man, that gamblin’ man
who’d shoot you if he found you here.”
