Here’s to the Gambler

He taught me to hold’em.
Scolded me for fold’in.
We knew how to walk away
and knew where to run.
It wasn’t bout the money
while drinking at the table.
It’s just the Rookie and the Gambler
when all was said and done.

A tribute to Kenny Rogers.

I was going to try and write a spin-off to his song, ‘The Gambler’ but decided against it because I didn’t want to ruin this great piece.
