The Gambler (賭徒) - Maxdown

About twenty years ago

 

On a train bound for nowhere

 

Met up with the gambler

 

Both too tired to sleep

 

So we took turns staring

At the window at the darkness

Until boredom overtook us

 

He commenced to speak

He said son I've made a life

Out of reading people's faces

And knowing what their cards were

By the way they held their eyes

So if you don't mind my saying

 

I can see you're out of aces

For taste of your whiskey

I will give you some advice

 

So I handed him my bottle

And he drank down my last swallow

 

Then he bummed a cigarette

Then asked me for a light

And the night got deathly quiet

 

And his face lost all expression

Said if you're going to play the game boy

Better learn to play it right

You've got to know when to hold them

 

Know when to fold them

 

Know when to walk away

 

Know when to run

You ever count your money

 

While you're sitting at the table

There'll be time enough for counting

 

When the dealing is done

 

Every gambler knows

That the secret to survival

Is knowing what to throw away

And knowing what to keep

 

Every hand's a winner

 

Every hand's a loser

 

And the best that you can hope for

Is to die in your sleep

 

And when he finished speaking

 

Turned back toward the window

 

Crushed out his cigarette

Faded off to sleep

 

Somewhere in the darkness

 

The gambler he broke even

But in his final words

I found an ace that I could keep

 

You've got to know when to hold them

 

Know when to fold them

 

Know when to walk away

 

Know when to run

You don't ever count your money

 

While you're sitting at the table

There'll be time enough for counting

 

When the dealing is done

You've got to know when to hold them

 

Know when to fold them

 

Know when to walk away

 

Know when to run

You don't ever count your money

While you're sitting at the table

There'll be time enough for counting

 

When the dealing is done

You've got to know when to hold them

 

Know when to fold them

 

Know when to walk away

 

Know when to run

You don't ever count your money

While you're sitting at the table
