Miss my grandpa's old Gibson, and a girl of no importance,
A shot of whiskey sitting on the bar.
Yeah, I used to give a damn; I used to try real hard.
But I'll give in tonight, chances are.

Chorus
One foot on the narrow way, and one foot on the ledge.
Sifting through the devil's lies, and what the good Book says.
If I'm going anywhere, I'll probably go too far.
And probably away from you, chances are.
Chances are.

Well, there's a lonely corner waiting; deuces left for playing.
And I'll tell her everything she wants to hear.
Well I'm not worst at love is making, I'm better at than breaking (?).
A guy like me knows how to disappear.

Chorus
One foot on the narrow way, and one foot on the ledge.
Sifting through the devil's lies, and what the good Book says.
If I'm going anywhere, I'll probably go too far.
And probably away from you, chances are.
Chances are.

Hold me like I mean it. Stay 'til you believe it.
And we'll see if we can fill an empty heart.
But I won't tell you what the chances are.

Chorus
One foot on the narrow way, and one foot on the ledge.
Sifting through the devil's lies, and what the good Book says.
If I'm going anywhere, I'll probably go too far.
And probably away from you, chances are.
Chances are.
