The Gambler lodged as an earworm at some point during the night.
It wouldn’t disappear. I became curious about the person who wrote the song.
Don Schlitz wrote the lyrics and here’s an incredible track (wait 6 seconds) where he’s singing his own song:
The man fires me into grinning inside out. What is it about the song? Whether dealt by Don or Kenny Rogers, my velvet covered soul shivers with delight. The Ace I’d keep in that deal? Standing beside either Don or Kenny, belting out the words right along with them – with the joy of a jackpot winner.
I’d take that chance of being a loving fool beside ’em!
The only thing I’d lose is a regret.
You 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.
