There's a solitary man crying, "Hold me"

                        Dm    C

It's only because he's a-lonely

                             Dm C

If the keeper of time runs slowly

                          Dm  C

He won't be alive for long!

     F                                          C         Dm C 	

If he only had time to tell of all of the things he planned

      G                                                             

With a card up his sleeve, what would he achieve?

        F       C/E  G/D  G

It means nothing!

      C                        Dm   C

To the opium dens and the barroom gin

                             Dm  C

In the Belmont chair playing violins

                              Dm   C

The gambler's face cracks into a grin

                               Dm  C

As he lays down the king of spades

       F     

But the dealer just stares

                                    C  Dm  C

There's something wrong here, he thinks

   G

The gambler is seized and forced to his knees

   F   C/E      G/D G

And shot.......... Dead

       F       

He only wanted more time

              C           Dm  C

Away from the darkest door

       G                        

But his luck it gave in, as the dawn light crept in

      F   C/E    G/D G

And he lay on the floor

C Dm C From the Hundred Year War to the Crimea

                               Dm    C

With a lance and a musket and a roman spear

                                     Dm   C

To all of the men who have stood with no fear

                         Dm  C

In the service of the King

 F                                   

Before you met your fate be sure you

       C       Dm  C

Did not forsake

    G                 F      C/E G/D  G

Your lover, may not be around anymore
