"The Roving Gambler" as written by and Dyson/manuel....
I am a roving gambler
Gamble all around
Whenever I need a deck of cards
I lay my money down

I've gambled down in Cape Town
Played cards in Bloemfontein
But I'm going back to Kimberley
To gamble my last game (2x)

I hadn't been in Kimberley
Many more days than three
When I fell in love with a purdy little girl
She fell in love with me

She took me in her parlour
Cooled me with a fan
She whispered low in her mother's ear
I love this gambling man
I love this gambling man

Tonight I'll go out on the town
Hoping lady luck will bring
A winning hand to this gambling man
Then I'll buy a diamond ring

The gamblers took their places
The cards were dealt around
I caught him dealing from the bottom of the deck
And I shot that gambler down

Here I am in prison
Dragging a ball and chain
I can still hear the old judge say
You've gambled your last game
Gambled your last game
