The Card Cheat


There's a solitary man crying, "Hold me."

It's only because he's lonely

If the keeper of time runs slowly

He won't be alive for long!


If he only had time to tell of all of the things he planned

With a card up his sleeve, what would he achieve?

It means nothing!


To the opium den and the barroom gin

In the Belmont chair playing violins

The gambler's face cracks into a grin

As he lays down the king of spades

But the dealer just stares-there's something wrong

Here, he thinks

The gambler is seized and forced to his knees and shot dead

But his luck it gave in as the dawn light crept in

And he lay on the floor


>From the Hundred Year War to the Crimea

With a lance and a musket and a Roman spear

To all of the men who have stood with no fear

In the service of the King


Before you met your fate be sure you

Did not forsake your lover

May not be around anymore
