The Gambler

Kindred,


For some reason, the song, "The Gambler"*, keeps running through my mind.  


"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 my sayin'

I can see you're out of aces

For a taste of your whiskey

I'll give you some advice.


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.


Every gambler knows

That the secret to survivin'

Is knowin' what to throw away

And knowin' what to keep


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."
