Moonlight Gambler

You can gamble for matchsticks.  You can gamble for gold.  The stakes may be heavy or small.  But if you haven’t gambled for love & lost, you haven’t gambled at all…

They call me the moonlight gambler

I’ve gambled for love and lost

I’ve gambled for love but it isn’t in the cards

Oh, what heartache it has cost me

~

Win or lose, I’m a moonlight gambler

A winner is what I long to be

So I’ll gamble for love as long as I live

Till the day Lady Luck smiles on me

 You can gamble for matchsticks, you can gamble for gold

The stakes may be heavy or small

But if you haven’t gambled for love & lost

Then you haven’t gambled at all

~

No, if you haven’t gambled for love in the moonlight

Then you haven’t gambled at all

So I’ll gamble for love just as long as I live

Till the day Lady Luck smiles down on me

~

They call me the moonlight gambler

Yes, they call me the moonlight gambler
