(Dickie Peterson & Andrew "Duck" Macdonald)
I'm dealing from the bottom
And you don't stand a chance
There's the dead man's hand again
When the deck is stacked against you
You can always fold your hand
If you think it's worth the pain.

When the chips are down, I'm gonna call
You know I always will
Bring your money 'round
Let's call the call
There's the dead man's hand again.

Down and dirty
Down and dirty
Down and dirty
Down and dirty.

There from the bottom, Don't stand a chance
The dead man's hand again
They're stacked against you
You can make your stand
If you think it's worth the pain.

Down and dirty
Down and dirty
Down and dirty
Down and dirty.

I've known winners, and losers too
Ain't no difference between the two
You bet your life, I've seen it all before
Some leave rich, oh most leave poor
Ain't no winners!

I've seen winners, and losers too
Ain't no difference between the two
Bet your life, I've seen it all before
Some leave rich, oh most leave poor
Ooooh, Yeah!

Down and dirty "Hello, baby"
Down and dirty "My name is Lucifer"
Down and dirty "And I hear you like to gamble, baby"
Down and dirty "With me you don't need no money, baby"
Down and dirty "Just your soul, Ha ha"
"Down! Dirty!"
