Once my future was shiny as the
Seat of my pants are today
Then old mother luck and all her
Daughters started duckin' me
When I finally got tired of just sittin' there
Watching my life slip away
I said I better start takin' all the living
That's a-comin' to me

Chorus:
Now I love too much, fight too much
Stay out late at night too much
But you bet your butt I'm going to
Live before I die
And I may smoke too much, drink too much
Every blessed thing too much
It's a low-down life, but it ain't gonna pass me by

I don't care if the world don't ever hear
The sound of my name
And old mother luck and all her daughters
Keep a-duckin' me
As long as that cat that I gotta look at when
I shave ain't ashamed
There ain't no Jody in the world
I'd ever rather be.

Chorus:
Now I love too much, fight too much
Stay out late at night too much
But you bet your butt I'm going to
Live before I die
And I may smoke too much, drink too much
Every blessed thing too much
It's a low-down life, but it ain't gonna pass me by
