If I appear to be holdin' on tight,
You'd be right, I've been holdin' on for dear life.
The way that it's all been goin', there's talk I just might,
Be the last of, the last in a long lonesome line.

I made mistakes I won't try to defend.
God knows what I've been through to get where I am .
They say the blood in my body is agein' like wine.
I'm the last of, the last in a long lonesome line.

For better or worse,
I have lived life so fast.
I wasn't the first,
Hate to think I'm the last,
Of the last in a long lonesome line.

Instrumental break.

Tears an' whiskey, yeah, I spilled my share.
But it's the music that's kept me goin' through all of these years.
An' there's some songs still need singin' before closin' time,
From the last of, the last in a long lonesome line.

For better or worse,
I have lived life so fast.
I wasn't the first,
Hate to think I'm the last,
Of the last in a long lonesome line.
Oh, I'm the last of, the last in a long lonesome line.
