The Card Cheat

Intro C, C Dm C, C, C Dm C,. X2

F, F, Dm C, C, G, G, F C/E, G/D, G

C Dm C

There's a solitary man crying, "Hold me"

Dm C

It's only because he's a-lonely

Dm C

If the keeper of time runs slowly

Dm C

He won't be alive for long!

F C Dm C

If he only had time to tell of all of the things he planned

G

With a card up his sleeve, what would he achieve?

F C/E G/D G

It means nothing!

C Dm C

To the opium dens and the barroom gin

Dm C

In the Belmont chair playing violins

Dm C

The gambler's face cracks into a grin

Dm C

As he lays down the king of spades

F

But the dealer just stares

C Dm C

There's something wrong here, he thinks

G

The gambler is seized and forced to his knees

F C/E G/D G

And shot.......... Dead

Link C, C Dm C, C, C Dm C X2

F

He only wanted more time

C Dm C

Away from the darkest door

G

But his luck it gave in, as the dawn light crept in

F C/E G/D G

And he lay on the floor

C Dm C

From the Hundred Year War to the Crimea

Dm C

With a lance and a musket and a roman spear

Dm C

To all of the men who have stood with no fear

Dm C

In the service of the King

F

Before you met your fate be sure you

C Dm C

Did not forsake

G F C/E G/D G

Your lover, may not be around anymore

Link C, C Dm C, C, C Dm C x2
