Alan Lomax - Rambling Gambler lyrics

I'm a rambler and a gambler
And a long ways from home
If the people don't like me
They can leave me alone

Oh, it's dark and it’s a-rainin'
And the moon gives no light
My pony won't travel
On this dark road at night

Go put up your pony
And give him some hay
Come take your seat by me
Just as long as you stay

My pony isn’t hungry
No, he won't eat your hay
We’re headed for Wyoming
We’re gonna graze on the way

I used to have me a pretty little sweetheart
Her age was nineteen
She was the flower of Belton
And the rose of Saline

But her parents were against me
And now she is the same
If I'm on your book, love
Won’t you blot out my name

I'm a rambler and a gambler
And a long ways from home
If the people don't like me
They can leave me alone

Oh, it's dark and it’s a-rainin'
And the moon gives no light
My pony won't travel
On this dark road at night
