FUN. LYRICS
"The Gambler"

NOTE: I figured this out with a piano, not a guitar.
It should not make any difference, but I do not know if there is an easier way to play 
it with a capo.
Those are the chords in standard tuning, if you want to play with a capo, you will have 
to transpose it by yourself.

The notes connected with a dash are triplets, the others are played within normal beats.

The notes in the bass line are optional, but they do create a scale downwards from Bb to 
F, which is a nice effect

That should be all you need to know about the song, now play!


Intro:
Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Gm Bb/F Eb F Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Bb
Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Gm Bb/F Eb F Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Bb

Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Gm    Bb/F      Eb              F
Slow    down, we've got time left to be lazy
        Bb        [ch]Dm/A[/ch]         Gm     Bb/F Eb             F
All the kids have bloomed from babies into flowers in our eyes
          Bb    [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Gm    Bb/F    Eb               F
We've got fifty good years left to spend out in the garden
        Eb               Dm                Cm  F
I don't care to beg your pardon, we should live until we
Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Gm Bb/F Eb F Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Bb
die


        Bb         [ch]Dm/A[/ch]         Gm                 Dm-Eb-F
We were barely eighteen when we crossed collective hearts
       Eb               Dm            Cm                F
It was cold, but it got warm when you barely crossed my eye
             Bb          [ch]Dm/A[/ch]     Gm    Bb/F   Eb           F
And then you turned, put out your hand, and you asked me to dance
       Eb           Dm                Cm             F
I knew nothing of romance, but it was love at second sight


  Eb                F                         Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Gm Bb/F
I swear when I grow up I won't just buy you a rose
       Eb             F                           Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Gm Bb/F
I will buy the flower shop, and you will never be lonely
    Eb                           F
For even if the sun stops waking up over the fields
           Bb                [ch]Dm/A[/ch]                Gm
I will not leave, I will not leave 'til it's our time
        Eb                          F
So just take my hand, you know that I will never leave your
Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Gm Bb/F Eb F Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Bb
side
Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Gm Bb/F Eb F Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Bb

           Bb          [ch]Dm/A[/ch]       Gm                Dm-Eb-F
It was the winter of '86, all the fields had frozen over
      Eb          Dm      Cm            F
So we moved to Arizona to save our only son
             Bb       [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Gm Bb/F        Eb                   F
And now he's turned into a man, though he thinks just like his mother
     Eb                    Dm              Cm           F
He believes we're all just lovers, he sees hope in everyone


         Bb         [ch]Dm/A[/ch]   Gm      Bb/F   Eb                 F
And even though she moved away, we always get calls from our daughter
        Eb                 Dm                 Cm                  F
She has eyes just like her father's, they are blue when skies are gray
              Bb      [ch]Dm/A[/ch]  Gm   Bb/F    Eb                F
And just like him she never stops, never takes the day for granted
          Eb                Dm             Cm         F
Works for everything that's handed to her, never once complains


Eb               F      Bb   [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Gm Bb/F
You think that I nearly lost you
         Eb               F         Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Gm Bb/F
when the doctors tried to take you away
         Eb                F               Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Gm Bb/F
Like the night you took my hand beside the fire
       Eb       F        Bb
thirty years ago to this day,
Eb                                F
You swore you'd be here 'til we decide that it's our time
             Bb              [ch]Dm/A[/ch]             Gm
But it's not time, you never quit in all your life
        Eb                          F                       Bb  [ch]Dm/A[/ch]  Gm
So just take my hand, you know that I will never leave your side
           Eb                             F
You're the love of my life, you know that I will never leave your side


Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Gm Bb/F Eb F Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Bb
Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Gm Bb/F Eb F Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Bb
Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Gm Bb/F Eb F Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Bb
Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Gm Bb/F Eb F Bb [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Bb
Eb Dm Cm Dm-Eb-F
Eb Dm C F

         Bb   [ch]Dm/A[/ch] Gm  Bb/F      Eb             F
You come home from work, and you kiss me on the eye
              Eb                Dm             Cm                F
You curse the dog, you say that I should never feed them what is ours
      Bb       [ch]Dm/A[/ch]   Gm    Bb/F      Eb               F
So we move out to the garden, look at everything we've grown
        Eb              Dm      Cm           Cm-Dm-Eb F                  Bb
And the kids are coming home so I'll set the table;     you can make the fire
