Aces & Eights    
     
Oh, you know I wanna hold ya, Texas style
Pass me that bottle little girl, sit & stay a while
The game you wanna play, is the dangerous kind
ĎCause you got you another man, & I do think heíd mind

Iíll throw my chips on the table
I just canít wait
I might be holding a dead manís hand
It might be too late, but

Iíll bet it all on aces & eights

If you wanna change the game, Iíll take that bet
ĎCause thereís so many things you do, I havenít seen yet.
Just one lingering question in the back of my mind.
When your man gets home, whatís he gonna find?

Iíll throw my chips on the table
I just canít wait
Might be holding a dead manís hand
It might be too late, but

Iíll bet it all on aces & eights.

SOLO

You know this jokerís wild when the queenís on top.
Whatever you do now baby, donít you stop.
If Iím a dead man walking, one last request.
Oh, I need you to just do what you do best.

Iíll throw my chips on the table
Iím going all in
Bet it all on a dead manís hand
Original sin

Iíll bet it all on aces & eights

SOLO

Such a dirty trick
One that Iíd expect
When youíre double dealing
From the bottom of the deck

Iíll bet it all on aces & eights

Double dealing
Soul Stealing
Twisted feeling
Got me reeling
Aces & eights
Aces & eights
