  1. If there is a song better at explaining life than this, I wanna hear it. Weird how a song can give you better life advice than a lot of people.

  2. RUN PEOPLE WE DO NOT HAVE TIME TO BE DEPRESSED THIS HARDHEADED NEON GOD STILL WITH THAT STUPID BITCH GIVE It A REST DUMBASS FUCKEN IDIOT FOR SHES NOT THE ONE for me

  3. Why do people spill their miseries here? I don't come here to get a downer-how about something positive for the rest of us that still have to live this life?

  4. Childish much who is adding auto-tune to fine tuned songs that were created without it. Exportation to planet idiocy is a thing intelligent life better not find you.

  5. I've always loved this song. I thought Kenny was handsome in a rugged kind of way before all that plastic surgery. Looking at him here, he was hot! (to me, anyway), but, he looks totally different now. Great song, great movie! ❤❤❤

  6. conheci as musicas dele graças ao supernatural
    e outros q são ótimos tbm
    as primeiras temporadas tinham muita musica boa

  7. Hmm.. the 8.9 thousand fools that dislike this song /video must be fans of "new" country… 🤮🤮🤮 Carrie Underwear, Taylor Slut and Brad Fagsley… 🤬🤬

  8. DO WHAT EVER YOU WANT WITH YOUR WORLD ALL 7.8 BILLION GUILTY THOU JUST SO NOT CRY WHEN ME FINDS THOU AND TAGS YOU OUT AND WHERE IS THOU GONNA HIDE FROM ME SHH SO NOT TELL HIM WHAT I KNOW JUST LET ALL 7.8 BILLION THOU'S PROCESS AND THINK WHERE THEY WILL HIDE

  9. My uncle Roger Bowling wrote that song and many more for Kenny Rogers I also write and sing music. Father has all his golden albums

  10. I have one regret in life, if you can say, I guess I didn't have a say lol. But I was born way too late. Born 2001, I missed all this brilliance of music. 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, a bit of 90s. Damn, I missed it all. But still I appreciate the hell out of this era. 🙂

  11. The Gambler Lyrics

    On a warm summer's eve
    On a train bound for nowhere
    I met up with the gambler
    We were both too tired to sleep
    So we took turns a-starin'
    Out the window at the darkness
    The boredom overtook us,
    And he began to speak

    He said, "Son, I've made a life
    Out of readin' people's faces
    Knowin' what the cards were
    By the way they held their eyes
    So if you don't mind me sayin'
    I can see you're out of aces
    For a taste of your whiskey
    I'll give you some advice"

    So I handed him my bottle
    And he drank down my last swallow
    Then he bummed a cigarette
    And asked me for a light
    And the night got deathly quiet
    And his faced lost all expression
    He said, "If you're gonna play the game, boy
    You gotta learn to play it right

    You've got to know when to hold 'em
    Know when to fold 'em
    Know when to walk away
    And know when to run
    You never count your money
    When you're sittin' at the table
    There'll be time enough for countin'
    When the dealin's done

    Every gambler knows
    That the secret to survivin'
    Is knowin' what to throw away
    And knowin' what to keep
    'Cause every hand's a winner
    And every hand's a loser
    And the best that you can hope for is to die
    in your sleep

    And when he finished speakin'
    He turned back toward the window
    Crushed out his cigarette
    And faded off to sleep
    And somewhere in the darkness
    The gambler he broke even
    But in his final words
    I found an ace that I could keep

    You've got to know when to hold 'em
    Know when to fold 'em
    Know when to walk away
    And know when to run
    You never count your money
    When you're sittin' at the table
    There'll be time enough for countin'
    When the dealin's done

    You've got to know when to hold 'em (when to hold 'em)
    Know when to fold 'em (when to fold 'em)
    Know when to walk away
    And know when to run
    You never count your money
    When you're sittin' at the table
    There'll be time enough for countin'
    When the dealin's done

    You've got to know when to hold 'em
    Know when to fold 'em
    Know when to walk away
    And know when to run
    You never count your money
    When you're sittin' at the table
    There'll be time enough for countin'
    When the dealin's done

    Thank you 🙂

  14. The Elder Truth
    At the end of the universe
    a state of "dianoia"
    mathematical dilemma
    a confused
    and crying Mozart
    playing toys
    of a noble aristocracy
    sinking fast beneath
    the Forms
    an awful truth
    only transcended
    through Magick
    -F. Nienow
