doug — off the record

just a place to share some thoughts

A Kenny Rogers playlist

We lost a good one on the weekend. It didn’t matter whether we were listening to the radio/stereo at home or in the car, there was no mistaking Kenny Roger’s voice when a song came on.

And, as a testament to how we enjoyed his talents, we always seemed to know every word. I also have a memory from a long time ago learning to play Ruby.

David Warwick started a discussion and people started sharing memories and that inspired me to put together this playlist of his songs. I know that, if you are a fan, you know them all. If you’re not, enjoy a few of them.

The Gambler


Through the years

Ruby, don’t take your love to town

Just dropped in

Islands in the Stream

Me and Bobby McGee

Coward of the County

You decorated my life


Love or something like it

Don’t fall in love with a dreamer

We’ve got tonight

She believes in me

All my life

What did I miss?

Do you have a favourite Kenny Rogers song?

  1. The Gambler is definitely my favourite Kenny Rogers’ songs. As an avid country music fan, I must say that I love all of his songs, but The Gambler is just that extra bit special. Thanks for putting together this play list. Now I find myself humming a few songs as I type! 🙂
