เนื้อเพลง The Card Cheat

The Card Cheat - The Clash

There's a solitary man crying, "Hold me."

It's only because he's a-lonely

 

If the keeper of time runs slowly

He won't be alive for long!

 

If he only had time to tell of all of the things he planned

 

With a card up his sleeve, what would he achieve?

 

It means nothing!

 

To the opium den and the barroom gin

In the Belmont chair playing violins

 

The gambler's face cracks into a grin

As he lays down the king of spades

But the dealer just stares

There's something wrong here, he thinks

 

The gambler is seized and forced to his knees

And shot dead

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

 

From 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 not forsake your lover

 

May not be around anymore

 

There's a solitary man crying, "Hold me."

It's only because he's a-lonely

 

If the keeper of time runs slowly

 

He won't be alive for long!
