3:10 to Yuma

~

I want to ride again on the 3:10 to Yuma
Thats where I saw my love, the girl with the golden hair
Not a word between us was spoken, the silence never was broken
But before she left her eyes said a sad good bye, sad am I, sad am I

To think of the chance that I missed
I could cry to think of the lips left unkissed
Perhaps she’ll ride again on the 3:10 to Yuma
And I can meet my love and tell her how much I care

Though I have no reason to go there
And there’s not a soul that I know there
When the 3:10 to Yuma leaves if I have the fair
I’ll be there, I’ll be there, I’ll be there

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
