Why did my dog have to up and die
Sweet lord it wasn’t his time
Why are all the good people I know crying
Damn It I’m doing just fine

What is the doctor gonna find
When he drills a hole in my father’s spine
If the cancer doesn’t kill you it’ll take your pride
Sweet lord we are all gonna die

I haven’t spent any time with you
Singing hospital hymns in the waiting room
I’m the very last one to hear the news
There’s nothing I can do

Death is a friend that you can’t refuse
Sweet lord we’re coming home soon
Mama I’ve got holes in all my shoes
And plenty left to lose

just read that old book it’ll be alright
but the bible never gave me no peace of mind
my prayers started tasting like little white lies
everything is gonna be fine
everything is gonna be fine
honey everything is gonna be fine

women are masters of wasting time
men rape everything in their site
together all we’re good for is starting fights
sweet lord we’re gonna burn in the fire

if this song is my final breath
if I’m killed by the cancer in her breast
let me give what little I have left
and die an honest death
