Papa don't shoot no dice papa don't play no cards
Papa don't shoot no dice he don't play no cards he say the money's tight
He say the times are hard

Caught me comin' in one night after the clock struck three
Caught me comin' in last night after the clock struck three you been gamblin'
You'll be the death of me

Gambled in Mexico gambled in New Orleans
Gambled in Mexico down in New Orleans played in every game
In every town between

But a gambler ain't got no friends whenever his luck is down
Gambler ain't got no friends when his luck is down but when he's ridin' high
They all hang around
