Papa don't shoot no dice
Papa don't play no cards
Papa don't shoot no dice
He don't play no cards
He say the money's tight
He say the times are hard

Caught me comin' in one night
After the clock struck three
Oh he caught me comin' in last night
After the clock struck three
You been gamblin'
You'll be the death of me

I gambled in Mexico
Gambled in New Orleans
I gambled in Mexico
Down in New Orleans
Played in every game
In every town between

But a gambler ain't got no friends
Whenever his luck is down
Gambler ain't got no friends
When his luck is down
But when he's ridin' high
They all hang around

Papa don't shoot no dice
Papa don't play no cards
Papa don't shoot no dice
He don't play no cards
He say the money's tight
He say the times are hard
He say the money's tight
He say the times are hard
