Norah Jones - Roving Gambler Lyrics




I am a roving gambler I gambled all around
Whenever I meet with a deck of cards
I lay my money down
Lay my money down, lay my money down

I had not been in Washington many more weeks than three
I met up with a pretty little girl
She fell in love with me
Fell in love with me, fell in love with me

She took me in her parlour, she cooled me with her fan
She whispered low in her mother's ear
I love that gambling man
Love that gambling man, love that gambling man

Oh daughter oh dear daughter how can you treat me so?
Leave your dear old mother
And with a gambler go
With a gambler go, with a gambler go

My mother oh dear mother you can not understand
If you ever see me a coming back
I'll be with a gambling man
With a gambling man, with a gambling man

I left her here in El Paso and I wound up in Maine
I met up with a gambling man
Got in a poker game
Got in a poker game, got in a poker game

We put our money in the pot and dealt the cards around
I saw him deal from the bottom of the deck
And I shot that gambler down
Shot the gambler down, shot the gambler down

Well, now I'm in the jailhouse got a number for my name
The Warden said as he locked the door
You've gambled your last game
Gambled your last game, gambled your last game

I am a roving gambler I gambled all around
Whenever I meet with a deck of cards
I lay my money down
Lay my money down, lay my money down

    Well I'm a rovin gambler I've seen most every town
    When ever I meet with a deck of cards I lay my money down
    Gonna lay my money down, yea gonna lay my money down
    I've gambled out in Texas and down in New Orleans
    I've lost a pot with four of a kind and won with a couple of queens
    Gonna Bluff with a couple of queens, yea I won with a couple of queens
    Well I meet a friend in Frisco and Lilith was her name
    Yea I couldn't lose with a pair of twos till a woman got in the game
    A red head got in the game, yea a woman got in the game
    Yea she won my old black panhead and she won my switch blade knife
    And when I lost everything I had she told me to bet my life
    She told me to bet my life, she told me to bet my life
    If you don't wanna lose your freedom, you care about your life
    Don't get in a game with a red head thing, you'll win yourself a wife
    You'll win yourself a wife, now you got yourself a wife

    Aku tersesat
    Menuju hatimu
    Beri aku jalan yang indah
    Ijinkan ku lepas penatku
    'tuk sejenak lelap di bahumu

    Dapatkah selamanya kita bersama
    Menyatukan perasaan kau dan aku
    Semoga cinta kita kekal abadi
    Sesampainya akhir nanti selamanya

    Tentang cinta yang datang perlahan
    Membuatku takut kehilangan
    Ku titipkan cahaya terang
    Tak padam di dera goda dan masa

    Dapatkah selamanya kita bersama
    Menyatukan perasaan kau dan aku
    Semoga cinta kita kekal abadi
    Sesampainya akhir nanti selamanya

    Dapatkah selamanya kita bersama
    Menyatukan perasaan k

    Some people who sing duets don't necessarily blend that well together. These two are dynamite on this song. Glad I listened.
