Out of all of Johnny Cash's Americana concept albums, The Rambler is by far the most forced and stilted. More of a radio play than an album, the record is about Cash's drive across America, where he picks up hitchhikers along the way. Every song on The Rambler is tied together by dialogues between Cash and the hitchhikers, which means the record never develops a sense of momentum.
The song spawned a hit TV movie of the same name and several more sequels featuring Rogers as professional gambler Brady Hawkes, and led to a lengthy side career for Rogers as a TV actor and host.
This song was actually recorded originally by Cash,but refused to let the record company to release it.Kenny Rogers then recorded and released it,and that's how it became Kenny's song.The verse and chorus format is somewhat different,and a few of the words are different.But,I'm using the words that Kenny used in his version. Here it is in the Key of G,based on a manuscr i pt: G G C G On a warm.

Gambler by Johnny Cash. About twenty years ago on a train bound for nowhere. I met up with a gambler we were both too tired to sleep. So we took turns a starin' through the window at the darkness. Till boredom overtook us and he commenced to speak. He said son I've made the life out of readin' people's faces. And knowin' what their cards were by the way they held their eyes. And if you don't.
