Verse l

My luck was good and I lived to love
When times were hard or seemed to tough
I'd take a trip back to days long gone
When I was weak and did so much wrong
But death comes calling as if by will
Cause I'm not easy for men to kill
Death's no foe I'll greet him then
I'll toast my friends and say amen

Chorus

And when I'm dead and my feet are cold
And my limbs are stiff cause I'd grown too old
Just burn me up and plant some flowers
I lived my life in minutes and hours
And when I'm dead don't mark my grave
With a flag of stone that bares my name
Just burn me up and plant some flowers
I lived my life in minutes and hours



Verse ll

My hair is grey and my eyes grow dim
I'm more than ready to go with him
I'm not scared I ain't dreadin'
Away we go to Hell - or to Heaven

Chorus

Bridge
Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh

Chorus
