Intro: [A] [E] [B7] [E] [A] [E] [G] [B7] [E]

[ Chorus ]
[A] I got these Low-Down [E] Gamblin? Blues.
[B7] Lost the money for my [E] union dues
If ya [A] roll with the Devil, boy, your [E] sure to lose
I [G] got these Low-Down [B7] Gamblin? [E] Blues.

[ Verse 1 ]
I [A] hear the whistle of that [E] east bound freight
[A] Fading in the night and my [E] point is eight.
I [A] have to let it ride and if [E] I don't pass,
[G] Ol' Mister Devil, gonna [A] own my [E] ass. [ Chorus ]

[A] [E] [B7] [E] [A] [E] [G] [B7] [E]

[ Verse 2 ]
I [A] gotta find a game man, I?m [E] feelin? hot.
[A] Ol? Mister Devil says ?I?ll [E] bet your not"
[A] I?m dealin? with the Devil, now I'm [E] ready to roll
[G] I just crapped out, now he [A] owns my [E] soul. [ Chorus ]

[A] [E] [B7] [E] [A] [E] [G] [B7] [E]

[ Verse 3 ]
I [A] rolled them bones and I [E] shoulda known,
Ya [A] roll with the Devil, boy, you [E] never go home.
I [A] bet my soul, now I'm [E] gonna be,
[G] Down with the Devil for e[A]terni[E]ty. [ Chorus ]
