I Gambled My Heart
Buddy Holly Lyrics


When you've loved someone and then found you've lost
Why must a true heart be left to pay the cost?
Why must a heart that has been true
Be broken and sad, so empty and blue?

I gambled my heart and I lost it to you
Now I'll spend my life wondering why I love you?
Someday, you'll know why I'm so blue
When you've gambled your heart and you've lost it too
Why must it be the one you want most of all
They'll build you up and then let you fall?
They'll lead you on, you'll think that they're true
They'll love you then leave you so empty and blue

Please excuse, I pasted this on the wrong record of Buddies, was meant to be here on IGMH. This one Glad you like it so. I used to play it on guitar, simple progression of chords. Buddy in 55' made is sound so easy. I played the fiddle part too. The Album, Holly in the Hills as all of his I love every song. Sonny Curtis on the fiddle and Bob Montgomery on acoustic guitar. Thanks again, best for your progress. My strings were covered in a tar like substance even after washing from my engineering many moons before you were born.
