Lyrics:I thought I was a gambler
Broke ev'ry shark in town
Until I met a rounder
Who called
all I put down
We laid the cards on the table
He drew an ace high hand
He bet his
watch and I called it
And lost my money like a man

(Chorus)
I've got them polka
dot blues, oh, them polka dot blues
Lost my hat and my coat and my straight-laced shoes

Sold my watch and went back to lose
The mean old gambling polka dot blues

Now my gal
had plenty, so I got twenty
Then went back and sat down
I got a four but thought it was
more
As we dealt the cards around
I sat the deck on the table
Bet him all I could
stand
I turned it over a measly four
He had another ace high hand

(Repeat
chorus)
