Danny O’Keefe - (Keep Your) Back To The Wall lyrics

O'Keefe

Keep your back to the wall
A man without friends
Must always be careful
When the trouble begins

Keep your back to the wall
Like you always say
This ain't a game of chance
No, not the way you play

Keep your back to the wall
Keep travellin' on
Every time you stop to look
A little bit more is gone

Fortune rise and fall
Till your hand's been played
You could win or lose it all
You could raise or you could fade away

But keep your back to the wall
Your bound to lose
Don't walk in another man's dream
If you can't fill his shoes

Keep your back to the wall
Like Wild Bill and the Kid
The last thing they ever thought they'd do
Was the last thing that they did

Keep your back to the wall
When you can't play it straight
Watch out for the aces
The aces and the eights
