  • Is your luck enough
    Is your touch enough
    C'mon girl
    Can you keep it up
    Is your bluff enough

    Are you tough enough
    Is your stuff enough
    Can you start it up
    Are you sharp enough
    Let it roll, let em go, let em fly
    Took a chance on a chance
    But the aces were high
    Get it on, give it up, give it in
    You stole the wages of sin
    Got to be in it to win

    [Chorus]
    Nine lives, nine times to die
    I've been bitten once - Tim McGraw
    But I won't be twice shy - Tim McGraw
    Nine lives, nine times to die
    Come on and show me your hand
    Cause it's your time to cry

    Have you lost your touch
    Are the stakes too much
    Did you spin the wheel
    And could you close a deal.
    Yeah, yeah!
    Let it roll, let em go, give em style
    Took a chance on a chance
    But the deuces were wild
    Get it on, give it up, give it in
    You stole the wages of sin
    Cause you're in it to win

    [Chorus]
    Nine lives, nine times to die
    I've been bitten once
    But I won't be twice shy
    Nine lives, nine times to die
    Come on and show me your hand - Tim McGraw
    Cause it's your turn to cry - Tim McGraw

    Hey!

    Let it roll, let em go, let em fly
    Took a chance on a chance
    But the aces were high
    Get it on, give it up, give it in
    You stole the wages of sin
    Got to be in it to win

    [Chorus]

    Nine lives, nine times to die
    I've been bitten once
    But I won't be shy twice
    Nine lives, nine times to die
    It's Russian roulette
    With every roll of your dice

    And nine lives is all we're gonna get?
    I said all we're gonna get yeah?
    Nine lives, nine times to die
    You've just bitten less than your nine lives. Writer/s: JOSEPH ELLIOTT, PHIL COLLEN, RICK SAVAGE, TIM MCGRAW
