"Those Gambler's Blues" as written by and Jimmie Rodgers....
It was down in Big Kid's bar room
On the corner beyond the square
Everybody's drinking liquor
The regular crowd was there

I walked out on the sidewalk
Began walking around
I looked everywhere i thought she'd be
But my baby couldn't be found

I passed by the big infirmary
I heard my sweetheart moan
Gee it hurts me to see you there
'Cause ya know you used to be my own

I goes out to see the doctor
"Your gal is low" he said
I went back to see my baby
Good god, she was lying there dead

I strolled on to the bar room
Drank good whiskey 'til nine
'Cause it hurts me to see my gal
Lying there so cold so white

She's gone she's gone god bless her
She's mine wherever she may be
She has rambled this wide world over
But she never had a pal like me

Well sixteen coal black horses
All hitched up in line
In that pretty buggy she's riding
Goodbye old gal of mine
