Willie Was a Gamblin' Man Lyrics

Artist: Ferlin Husky
Album: True, True Lovin'

Three men down on the river bank rollin' them gamblin' bowls
I say one named Johnny one named Samson and the other was Willie Jones
The other was Willie Jones
Well Willie was a rollin' and shootin' at once he said this time I bet in a lose
Johnny's done won my new Stetson hat and mama needs a new pair of shoes
Mama needs a new pair of shoes
Willie (Willie was a gamblin' man) Willie was a gamblin' man
Willie rolled them bowls all over the land Willie was a gamblin' man
Well Willie was a gamblin' man

Well Willie got mad at Johnny he jerked out a big 44
He said you've got my stetson and all of my money but you ain't a gonna get no more
I know you ain't a gonna get no more
He said Johnny boy I'm gonna kill you I'm gonna shoot you and that ain't all
When my bullet goes thru your head I'm gonna bet a which a way you're gonna fall
I'm gonna bet a which a way you're gonna fall
Willie (Willie was a gamblin' man)...

Well the sheriff he came got poor Willie took him to the hanging tree
He said sheriff I'll bet ye that I'm still kickin' when the sun goes down on me
When the sun goes on me
Everybody went to the graveyard to watch 'em bury poor Willie Jones
And on the top of his grave they had a great big sign
Said here lies a gambler and his bowles here lies Willie Jones
Willie (Willie was a gamblin' man)...
Yes Willie was a gamblin' man I said Willie was a gamblin' man
