a whisky bottle, sets upon the table
surrounded by the pounding, of a nervous heart
a dealer dealing, good fate or misfortune
will have you sweating bullets for the right cards

(Naaa Na, Na Na Na Na Naa Na, Na Na Naa Na Naaaa)

the unexpected, fear will come to haunt you
like a breath of darkness, riding in the wind
and it will drag you, to the bowels of evil
pray that wild bills curse, doesn't ride again

the deadman's hand, the deadman's fate
hold them once and you may never escape
the deadman's hand, the deadman's fate
everybody fears, the aces and eights

a loaded gun hiding, underneath the table
ready for the trigger in case you might go down
you'll either come out standing like a winner
or lyin' in a pine box six feet underground

the deadman's hand, the deadman's fate
hold them once and you may never escape
the deadman's hand, the deadman's fate
everybody fears, the aces and eights

(Guitar Solo)
(Naaa Na, Na Na Na Na Naa Na, Na Na Naa Na Naaaa)
(Naaa Na, Na Na Na Na Naa Na, Na Na Naa Na Naaaa)

the deadman's hand, the deadman's fate
hold them once and you may never escape
the deadman's hand, the deadman's fate
everybody fears, the aces and eights

With a deadmans hand (Naaa Na, Na Na Na Na Naa Na, Na Na Naa Na Naaaa)
The deadmans hand (Naaa Na, Na Na Na Na Naa Na, Na Na Naa Na Naaaa)

With the deadmans hand (Naaa Na, Na Na Na Na Naa Na, Na Na Naa Na Naaaa)
The deadmans Hand (Naaa Na, Na Na Na Na Naa Na, Na Na Naa Na Naaaa)

you wanna put that last card down, boy?
