A whiskey bottle sits upon the table,
Surrounded by the pound and I have a nervous heart.
A dealer dealin' good fate or misfortune,
Will have you sweatin' bullets for the right cards

The unexpected fear will come to haunt you
Like a breath of darkness ridin' in the wind,
And it will drag you to the bowels of evil
Pretty wild bills, cursed, doesn't ride again.

[Chorus:]
A deadman's hand, a deadman's fate,
Hold them once and you may never escape.
A deadman's hand, a deadman's fate,
Everybody fears the Aces & Eights.

A loaded gun hidin' underneath the table
Ready for the trigger in case you might go down.
You'll either come out standin' like a winner
Or lyin' in a pine box six feet underground.

[Chorus]

[Chorus]

With a dead man's hand
A dead man's hand (X2)

(You gonna flip that last card boy?)
