      Townes Van Zandt - St. John The Gambler Música y Letra

      When she had twenty years, well she turned to her mother
      Saying mother, I know that you'll grieve
      But I've given my soul to st john the gambler
      Tomorrow comes time to leave
      For the hills cannot hold back my sorrow forever
      And dead men lie deep 'round the door
      The only salvation that's mine for the asking
      So mother, think on me no more
      
      And winter held high round the mountains' breast
      And the cold of a thousand snows
      Lay heaped upon the forest's leaf
      But she dressed in calico
      For a gambler likes his women fancy
      Fancy she would be
      And the fire of her longing would keep way the cold
      And her dress was a sight to see
      
      But the road was long beneath the feet
      She followed her frozen breath
      In search of a certain st john the gambler
      Stumbling to her death
      She heard his laughter right down from the mountains
      And danced with her mother's tears
      To a funeral drawn of calico
      'neath the cross of twenty years
      
      To a funeral drawn of calico
      'neath the cross of twenty years
