    Lyrics

    I took a walk in the rain one day
    On the wrong side of the tracks
    I stood on the rail 'til I saw that train
    Just to see how my heart would react
    Now some people say that you shouldn't tempt fate
    And for them I can not disagree
    But I never learned nothing from playing it safe
    I say fate should not tempt me

    I take my chances
    I don't mind working without a net
    I take my chances
    I take my chances ev'ry chance I get

    I sat alone in the dark one night
    Tuning in by remote
    I found a preacher who spoke of the light
    But there was brimstone in his throat
    He'd show me the way according to him
    In return for my personal check
    I flipped my channel back to CNN
    And I lit another cigarette

    I take my chances
    Yes, forgiveness doesn't come with a debt
    I take my chances
    I take my chances ev'ry chance I get

    I've crossed lines of words and wire
    And both have cut me deep
    I've been frozen out and I've been on fire
    And the tears are mine to weep
    But I can cry until I laugh
    Or laugh until I cry
    So cut the deck right in half
    I'll play from either side

    I take my chances
    I pay my dollar and I place my bet
    I take my chances
    I take my chances ev'ry chance I get
    I take my chances
    Yeah, I don't cling to remorse or regret
    I take my chances
    I take my chances ev'ry chance I get
    I take my chances
    I take my chances
