My


Body's Acing From Laying In This Bed I
Went Singing In The Rain And The Cold Got To My Head I
Don't Know Who's Paying I Just Know What The Doctor Said 84
Years Of A Sinning Life And In The Morning I'll Be Dead I

Had Three Daughters A
New Man For Every One The
Only Man That I Ever Loved Left
Me With My Only Son I
Was A No Good Mother I
Was A No Good Wife There's
Only One Thing That I Did Right In This Godforsaken Life Saint

Peter Won't You Open Up The Big White Gate Cause
I Heard About Forgiveness And I Hope It Ain't Too Late I
Ain't No Holy Roller But You Go Tell Your King That
All The Folks Up In Heaven Might Like To Hear Me Sing I

Sang To My Children Before
They Strayed So Far I
Sang For My Lovers Or
A Nickel In A Tip Jar I
Never Knew Jesus I
Never Read The Good Book But
On My Day Of Dying I'm
Giving Life A Second Look Saint

Peter Won't You Open Up The Big White Gate Cause
I Heard About Forgiveness And I Hope It Ain't Too Late I
Ain't No Holy Roller But You Go Tell Your King That
All The Folks Up In Heaven Might Like To Hear Me Sing It's

Coming On Time Now My
Body's Getting Cold I've
Got No Will I've Got No Prayer My
Story's All Been Told I'm
Ready For The Land Of Fire But
I'd Love To See The Land Of Gold So
Nurse Bring Me My Guitar One
More Song Before I Go Saint

Peter Won't You Open Up The Big White Gate Cause
I Heard About Forgiveness And I Hope It Ain't Too Late I
Ain't No Holy Roller But You Go Tell Your King That
All The Folks Up In Heaven Might Like To Hear Me Sing [thanks
