The Card Cheat Tablature

Transcribed by 

This is another song without too many changes. Once you learn the
first verse, you'll have the whole song. You got to be quick with
the C to Dm to C changes 

Verse 1
C                           Dm    C
There's a solitary man crying hold me
C                         Dm   C
It's only because he's a lonely
C                         Dm   C
if the keeper of time runs slowly
C                           Dm   C
He won't be alive for Long!
F                                          C
If He Only Had Time to tell of all of the things he planned
With a card up his sleeve, what would he achieve?
            F     Em      G   G
It means nothing

Verse 2 (Same Chords)

To the opuim dens and the bar room gin
In the belmont chair  playing violins
The gamble's face crack into a grin 
As he lay's down the king of spades
But the dealer just stares, there's something wrong here he
The gambler is siezed and forced to his knees
and shot dead

Verse 3 (vocal lay out 4 lines)
 He only wanted more time away from the darkest door
 But his luck it gave in as the dawn light crept in
 and he lay on the floor

Verse 4

Fromt the hundred year war to the crimea
With a lance and a musket and a roman spear
To all of the men who have stood with no fear
In the service of the king
Before you met your fate be sure you did no forsake
Your lover may no be around anymore

Verse 5 (Instrumental)

Repeat Verse 1 without last 3 lines (vocal)
