Subject: tab: Allman Bro's; Gamblers Roll


I hope this tab comes close to the way the Allamn Bro's are doin' that song.
Just two words about the solo and the lyrics: VERY POOR!!!
I've had not so much time to tab the song. So take the solo tab as an "as is"
kind of thing (just a view ideas how to build up a solo to the underlying
chords... and any HELP concerning the lyrics are very welcome!!!

You know the gambler he rides
rides on a fools train
train..... silver.......alone
all is what will change
time takes it's toll
on a gamblers roll

on a gamblers roll

Actual Words:
The Dealer Sits, Alone in the dark,
cigarette shines on his very last card,
everything he has, watched it come and go,
on the gamblers roll.
Cold wind blows,
a young girls world apart,
she bet it all, she bet it all,
on the jack of hearts,
gained her freedom but lost her soul,
on the gambler's roll, the gambler's roll,
you know the gambler he rides,
rides on a fools train,
im trading silver for gold
aw but his luck will change, time takes its toll,
on a gamblers roll.
