Song for Gamble


Words and music by Steve Gillette and Charles John Quarto

I remember Gamble Rogers he was a gentleman with a guitar.
He's gone on a little further now, a little deeper in the stars
He went down into the water, to help to save a drowning man.
And he left this world, holding out his hand.

He was a master at the microphone, had a subtle wisdom with a Southern tone
Mississippi John and Agememnon Jones, he had that magic in his hands.
He played the old songs and they still ring true, he was a poet and philosopher too.
He said life is just what happens to you while your making other plans.

I remember Gamble Rogers he was a gentleman with a guitar.
He's gone on a little further now, a little deeper in the stars
He went down into the water, to help to save a drowning man.
And he left this world, holding out his hand.

He had the gift of innocense and a fondness for the key of "E"
He always had that air of thankful dignity.
From the Tradewinds to the Troubador, he was a celebrated racontur
Left 'em laughing by the back stage door, left 'em cryin' out for more.

I remember Gamble Rogers he was a gentleman with a guitar.
He's gone on a little further now, a little deeper in the stars
He went down into the water, to help to save a drowning man.
And he left this world, holding out his hand.
