If it's my time to die today
Please God oh make it fast
Balanced on this point for a year and half
I just don't think I can last

There's a man who's laid to rest
The man who gave me my start
I wish I could quit but I can't and it's rough
Quick is the beat of my heart
Quick is the beat of my heart

So please all you people
Don't you grieve for me
The blood in my veins is black and I can't bleed

I've suffered the pain
And all I can face is the dark
Oh, lord, quick is the beat of my heart
Quick is the beat of my heart

Now my bags are almost packed
The train's about to depart
I wish I could quit but I can't and it's rough
Quick is the beat of my heart
Quick is the beat of my heart
Quick is the beat of my heart
Quick is the beat of my heart
Quick is the beat of my heart
Quick is the beat of my heart

If it's my time to die...
