The Gambler (赌徒) - Die Campbells

Written by:Don Schlitz

 

On a warm summer's eve

 

On a train bound for nowhere

 

I met up with the gambler

 

We were both too tired to sleep

 

So we took turns a starin'

 

Out the window at the darkness

 

The boredom overtook us

 

And he began to speak

 

He said son I've made a life

 

Out of readin' people's faces

 

Knowin' what the cards were

By the way they held their eyes

 

So if you don't mind me sayin'

 

I can see you're out of aces

 

For a taste of your whiskey

I'll give you some advice

 

So I handed him my bottle

And he drank down my last swallow

 

Then he bummed a cigarette

And asked me for a light

 

And the night got deathly quiet

 

And his face lost all expression

He said if you're gonna play the game boy

You gotta learn to play it right

You've got to know when to hold 'em

 

Know when to fold 'em

 

Know when to walk away

 

And know when to run

You never count your money

 

When you're sittin' at the table

There'll be time enough for counting

 

When the dealin's done

 

Every gambler knows

 

That the secret to survivin'

 

Is knowin' what to throw away

And knowin' what to keep

 

'Cause every hand's a winner

 

And every hand's a loser

And the best that you can hope for is to die

In your sleep

 

And when he finished speakin'

 

He turned back toward the window

 

Crushed out his cigarette

And faded off to sleep

 

And 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 'em

 

Know when to fold 'em

 

Know when to walk away

 

And know when to run

You never count your money

 

When you're sittin' at the table

There'll be time enough for countin'

When the dealin's done

You've got to know when to hold 'em when to hold 'em

Know when to fold 'em when to fold 'em

Know when to walk away

And know when to run

You never count your money

When you're sittin' at the table

There'll be time enough for countin'

 

When the dealin's done

You've got to know when to hold 'em

 

Know when to fold 'em

 

Know when to walk away

 

And know when to run

You never count your money

 

When you're sittin' at the table

There'll be time enough for countin'

 

When the dealin's done
