Intro: ||: D - Bm7 | G - A7alt :||
SPOKEN:
You can gamble for match sticks, you can gamble for gold.
The stakes may be heavy or small.
But if you haven't gambled for love and lost,
You haven't gambled at all.

They call me a moonlight gambler
I've gambled for love and lost
When I gamble for love but it isn't in the cards
Oh, what heartaches it can cost me

Win or lose, I'm a moonlight gambler
And a winner is what I long to be
So I'll gam - ble for love just as long as I live
Till the day Lady Luck smiles on me

Well, you can gam - ble for match sticks
You can gam - ble for gold
The stakes may be heavy or small
But if you haven't gam - bled for love and lost
Then you haven't gam - bled at all
No, if you haven't gam - bled for love in the moonlight
Then you haven't gam - bled at all

So I'll gam - ble for love just as long as I live
Till the day Lady Luck smiles on me
They call me the moonlight gambler
They call me the moonlight gambler
