Lyrics:
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, 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 faced 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
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

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
And 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
