John Anderson – I Ain't Afraid Of Dying lyrics

In the name of progress
Big old building's goin' up
And in the name of progress
Another Mom And Pop shop bites the dust

That old home town flavor
Has all but disappeared
And I worry when I wonder
What is gonna be like in twenty years

I may not have the answer
When it's all said and done
Sometimes I have the question
Where they're comin' from

I know where I am going
When they may need a rest
Oh, I ain't afraid of dying
Lord, it's the living that scares me to death

Sirens scream in the city
Gunshots ring in the night
Another mother watches while
Her young son claims to life

Some father says in the name of God
He took his baby's life
Well I don't think so, the God I know
Will believe that's right

I may not have the answer
When it's all said and done
Sometimes I have the question
Where they're comin' from

I know where I am going
When they may need a rest
Oh, I ain't afraid of dying
Lord, it's the living that scares me to death

Lord, I may not have the answer
When it's all said and done
Sometimes I have the question
Where they're comin' from

I know where I am going
When they may need a rest
Oh, I ain't afraid of dying
Lord, it's the living that scares me to death

Yea, I know where I am going
When they may need a rest
Oh, I ain't afraid of dying
Lord, it's the living that scares me to death
Scares me to death
