  1. On a warm summer's evenin'
    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'
    Out the window at the darkness
    Boredom overtook us
    And he began to speak

    He said, "Son, I've made a life
    Out of readin' people's faces
    Knowin' what the cards were
    By the way they held their eyes
    So if you don't mind my sayin'
    I can see you're out of aces
    For a taste of your whiskey
    I'll give you some advice

    So I handed him my bottle
    And he drank down my last swallow
    Then he bummed a cigarette
    And asked me for a light
    And the night got deathly quiet
    And his face lost all expression
    That If you're gonna play the game, boy
    You gotta learn to play it right

    You got to know
    When to hold 'em
    Know when to fold 'em
    Know when to walk away
    And know when to run
    You never count your money

    When you're sittin' at the table
    There'll be time enough for countin'
    When the dealin's done

    Every gambler knows
    The secret to survivin'
    Is knowin' what to throw away
    Knowin' what to keep

    'Cause every hand's a winner
    And every hand's a loser
    And the best that you can hope for
    Is to die in your sleep

    And when he finished speakin'
    He turned back toward the window
    Crushed out his cigarette

    And faded off to sleep
    And somewhere in the darkness
    The gambler – he broke even
    And in his final words I found
    An ace that I could keep
    You've got to know
    When to hold 'em
    Know when to fold 'em

    Know when to walk away
    Know when to run
    You never count your money
    When you're sittin' at the table
    There'll be time enough for countin'
    When the dealin's done

    You got to know
    When to hold 'em
    (When to hold 'em)
    Know when to fold 'em
    (When to fold 'em)
    And know when to walk away
    Know when to run

    You never count your money
    When you're sittin' at the table
    There'll be time enough for countin'
    When the dealin's done
    You got to know
    When to hold 'em

    Know when to fold 'em
    Know when to walk away
    Know when to run
    You never count your money
    When you're sittin' at the table
    There'll be time enough for countin'
    When the dealin's done
