I've had my fun
If I don't ever get well no more
I've had my fun
If I don't ever get well no more
I know my health is failin' me now
I know that I'm goin' down slow

Won't somebody write my mother
And tell her the shape I'm in
I want somebody to write my mother
Tell her the shape I'm in
I want you to tell her to pray for me
Ask her to forgive for all of my sins

Mother, please don't send me no doctor
A doctor can't do me no good
I don't want you to send my no doctor now
Doctor just can't do me no good
Back when I was a young boy, oh
I just didn't do anything I should
