When I'm long since gone, still you can hear me in this song
A voice from the dead, into your room to fill your head
Remember this, when I'm haunting from beyond
When the circle's closed, and this is sealed as the dead man's song!

When the stranger appears riding through your dreams...as pale as bones
A heartless killer in rattlesnake boots
Some say that he went down to the crossroads...and bent down on his knees
He sold his soul to the big bad black

Lost in the sand, temptated by the serpent's hiss
Voodoo drum - coyotes howl in the fullmoon's night
Now hypnotized, all alone on the desert plains
Expect no mercy! You'll meet your fear as the stranger appears...

Enter deadwood saloon, now your protected world is gone
Your helpless mind is about to discover the living darkness
Let the game begin! Let the desperate souls in!
He drains their strength and leaves them in the void of shadows, dust and smoke

The cards are given, now place your bets with your soul at stake
But as a sinner you live to win, throwing the dice...
You get triple six and flash a gain of gold!
He's never lost before, but now he's been given the dead man's hand

Shot in the back with a diamond bullet, straight through the heart
Where the darkest rivers run cold and deep, his silverdollar eyes glimmering death
As birds and blood come flowing out of his mouth, you thank the blackest ace
Fuck you and your God above, I pity you all. I pity you all 'til you die!

'Til you die! Dead man's hand!

When I'm long since gone, still you can hear me in this song
A voice from the dead, into your room to fill your head
Remember this, when the circle is closed and the stranger's dead
That even death can die in a dead man's song...
