I'm not afraid that when I'm dying
There'll be no one to hold my hand
If there's a God up there he loves me
As much as my old women can

I don't intend to be a martyr
I don't give a damn what people say
And if I never get to heaven
Heaven don't deserve me anyway

I've tasted life both good and evil
At times I was cruel and did not pay
And if I never get to heaven
Heaven don't deserve me anyway

I don't know what it was I came for
But I've enjoyed it up 'till until now
If there's a friend who ever needs me
I'll do my best to help somehow

I don't intend to keep no secrets
I don't give a damn what people say
And if I never get to heaven
Heaven don't deserve me anyway

I know and I'll admit my failures
I don't give a damn what people say
And if I never get to heaven
Heaven don't deserve me anyway

And if I never get to heaven
Heaven don't deserve me anyway
