I thought I was a gambler Broke every shark in town Until I met a rounder Who called all I put down We laid the cards on the table He drew an ace-high hand He bet his watch and I called it And lost my money like a man I've got them polky dot blues, oh, them polky dot blues Lost my hat and my coat and my straight lace shoes I sold my watch and went back to lose Them mean old gambling polky dot blues The gambling polky dot blues (Instrumental Break) My gal had plenty and I got twenty Then went back aand sat down I got a four, but I thought it was more As we dealt the cards around I set the deck on the table And bet him all I could stand I turned over a measly four He had another ace-high hand I've got them polky dot blues, oh, them polky dot blues Lost my hat and my coat and my straight lace shoes I sold my watch and went back to lose Them mean old gambling polky dot blues The gambling polky dot blues (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2017)
