HADESTOWN the Musical - When the Chips are Down Lyrics

FATES
Life ain’t easy, life ain’t fair
A girl’s gotta fight for a rightful share
What you gonna do when the chips are down
Now that the chips are down
What you gonna do when the chips are down
Now that the chips are down
Help yourself, to hell with the rest
Even the one who loves you best
What you gonna do when the chips are down
Now that the chips are down
What you gonna do when the chips are down
Now that the chips are down

EURYDICE
Oh my aching heart

FATES
What you gonna do when the chips are down?
Now that the chips are down
Take if you can, give if you must
Ain’t nobody but yourself to trust
What you gonna do when the chips are down?
Now that the chips are down
What you gonna do when the chips are down?
Now that the chips are down
Aim for the heart, shoot to kill
If you don’t do it then the other one will
What you gonna do when the chips are down?
Now that the chips are down
What you gonna do when the chips are down?
Now that the chips are down
And the first shall be first
And the last shall be last
Cast your eyes to heaven
You get a knife in the back
Nobody’s righteous
Nobody’s proud
Nobody’s innocent
Now that the chips are down
Now that the
Now that the
Now that the
Now that the
Now that the chips are down
