No Capo G The Devil went down to the river (river, river) D And He came to fall; to lose it all Em C To fool the fool too quick to call G While the gambler's stacks grew bigger (bigger, bigger)
D He had lost his sights through narrowed eyes Em C Too tempted by his wry desires G D Damned across fated path Em C The time to fold had come to pass G With the gambler's glory delivered (delivered, delivered) D He had thirst for more; a bigger score Em C A trophy no one could ignore G And the devil's wealth had withered (withered, withered) D So with cunning class, he offered fast Em C His soul; the wager had been cast G The gambler called, the river fell D And now the hand from out of hell Em The Devil smiled, looked in his eyes C He knew the loss was glorified G The Devil said, "Revel in your victory; D You've earned your damning Em Pack your things and leave" C But the gambler only stood and stuttered
G Stammering on words of disbelief D "Now you've won a new vocation. Em Pray to me that you can stand the heat." C And that, the gambler saw, Meant he had gone and finally set the devil free G D Damned across fated paths Em C The hand he played would be his last G Who am I? Who am I? D Just a gambler, holding aces in the Devil's eyes Em What is wrong? What's the sin? C Where's the answer? Where the hell do I fit in? G Or could it be, there's just a D little demon lost in the debris Em And I, should idly bide my time, C until a wager releases me?
