You remember at the start, the Gambler and the Monk played cards?

[Intro] D Em G A (x2)

D                         Em
Years before a Monk and Gambler embarked
       G                                A
On a long trek right through the great lands of the North
      D                  Em 
They had a debate about God, chance and fate
       G                          A
And agreed it be settled through just one card game

D                        Em
Day after day they sat there and they played
         G                          A
As the weeks and the days and the months passed away
D                          Em
Travelers came in just to watch and drink gin
     G                         A
And bet on which one would eventually win

[Interlude] D Em G A (x2)

D                          Em 
As a whole town was then slowly built round them
       G                    A
The Gambler's pot rose and Monk’s pot went down
      D                           Em
And thus came to pass the final hand came at last
       G                                A
But before it was played the Gambler’s heart it gave way
     D                       Em
He hollered and cried right out ‘for he died
    G                        A
A curse from his lungs: the game was not done
     D                       Em
He swore they’d be back to finish at last
      G                     A
And fist to the sky, the Gambler died.

[Outro] D Em G A (x2)
