Well I ain't afraid of dying, it's the thought of being dead

I wanna go on being me once my eulogy's been read

               Em                   Am             D

You can put my mind at ease if you fill my last request




Prop me up beside the jukebox if I die


Lord I wanna go to heaven, but I don't wanna go tonight

Fill my boot up with sand, put a stiff drink in my hand

Just let my headstone be a neon sign


Just let it burn in memory of all of my good times
