G                                                   D7
They met by chance on a riverboat on the way to New Orleans

He was a handsome gambler she was any young man's dream

                                        G7                   C
The thrill they felt when daylight fell was plain for all to see

                    G            D7                 G
The gambler and the lady who was someone's bride to be

In her cabin was a satin gown and the veil of snowy white

Her wedding in the chapel was set for Friday night

                                     G7              C
Funny how just three short plays can change a lady's plans

                       G                  D7               G
She knew she'd have to tell her groom she loves a gamblin' man

They lived and laughed and gambled all through the night and day

For the love of this gambler she threw her life away

                                     G7                  C
The dealer dealt him one last chance the lady caught her breath

                    G                 D7                G
She saw he held the ace of spades the gambler's card of death

They stepped ashore in New Orleans her heart was filled with fear

The ace of spades had told her that someone's death was near

                                     G7                   C
Her bridegroom took one look at them and knew that he had lost

                G                   D7              G
And now he must defend his pride no matter what the cost

She watched him as he took a tiny pistol from his vest

She cried don't kill this gamblin' man just because I love him best

                                 G7               C
The lady ran between them as the shot rang in the night

                    G           D7            G
For the love of the gambler she paid with her life

C                 G           D7            G
For the love of a gambler the lady gave her life
