It was Kenny Rogers who finally broke the song loose, in a version produced by Larry Butler. His rendition was a Country hit and even made its way to the Hot 100 at a time when country songs rarely crossed over. This song had a huge impact on both Kenny Rogers and its writer Don Schlitz. Rogers had three Country hits under his belt, but "The Gambler" gave him the title track to his biggest-selling album. Schlitz was able to quit his day job (actually a night job - he worked the graveyard shift) and become a full-time songwriter
Lyrics to "The Gambler" song by Kenny Rogers: On a warm summer's evening On a train bound for nowhere I met up with a gambler We were both too ti. .There'll be time enough for countin' When the dealing'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 And in his final words I found an ace that I could keep

Produced by Larry Butler. On a warm summer's evenin' on a train bound for nowhere I met up with a gambler, we were both too tired to sleep So we took turns a-starin' out the window at the darkness 'Til boredom overtook us and he began to speak
