(G) See the man in the picture with the (C) falcon on his (G) glove
a famous gambler, they say he (C) never knew de-(D)-feat.
(G) Lucky at cards, oh (C) he was lucky in (G) love
He gave his (C) heart to the (D /) lovely/( / D7) Margue-(G)-rite.
 
(G) See the woman beside him (C) whispering in his (G) ear
she was a famous beauty with the (C) men falling at her (D) feet.
(G) Her father was the richest man in the (C) town of Belve-(G)-dere
where the (C) Gambler met the (D /) lovely/( / D7) Margue-(G)-rite.
 
(e) The day when the (D) handsome gambling (F /) man came (/ C) through that (G) town
(e) They met by (D) chance at the (F /) corner (/ C) of the (G) street
(e) The scene was (C) set for the (G) trage-(D)-dy.
It was love at (e) first sight for the (C) gambler and the (D /) lovely/( / D7) Margue-(G)-rite.
 
Their passion was a fire that (C) could ot be con-(G)-tained
and when they made love oh (C) how their hearts did (D) beat
(G) and from that moment the whole (C) world would be forever (G) changed
for the (C) gambler and the (D /) lovely/( / D7) Margue-(G)-rite.
 
When her father heard the news he (C) was like a man pos-(G)-sessed
in a cold fit of fury (C) hatred and des-(D)-pair
(G) no-good-for-nothin'-gambler was goin' to (C) steal his daughter's (G) heart
he hired three (C) men to put an (D/ ) end to (/ D7) the af-(G)-fair.
 
The gambler had a room upstairs (C) in a cheap (G) hotel
the men lay in wait in an (C) alley off the (D) street
(G) as the lovers strolled by three shots rang  (C)  out and the gambler (G) fell
he died in the (C) arms of the (D /) lovely/( / D7) Margue-(G)-rite.
 
instr.
 
(e) when they brought her (D) home she just (F /) could not (/ C) be con-(G)-soled
(e) her mother sent (D) out for a (F /) doctor (/ C) and a (G) priest
(e) but it was too (C) late to save her (G) body or her (D) soul
she'd gone to meet the (e) gambler who was (C) waiting for his (D /) lovely/( / D7) Margue-(G)-rite.
 
See the man in the picture with the (C) falcon on his (G) glove
and the woman beside him, the Queen of (C) hearts at her (G) feet.
(G) They looked so happy they must have (C) been so much in (G) love
the famous (C) gambler and the (D /) lovely/( / D7) Margue-(G)-rite.
 
They still talk about them in the (C) town of Belve-(G)-dere
The old people can remember hearing (C) gunfire on the (D) street
(G) and now when the moon is full two (C) lovers sometimes (G) appear
they say it's the (e) ghost of the (C) gambler and the (D /) lovely/( / D7) Margue-(G)-rite.
 
they say it's the (e) ghost of the (C) gambler and the (D /) lovely/( / D7) Margue-(G)-rite.
