Lord, take this makeup of off of me.
I said, lordy, lordy, lordy, take this makeup offa me.
Its bad enough on the beach,
But its worse in the sea.

Because Im knockin on heavens door.
Because Im lookin for my ma.

I said, ma, take these guns away from me.
I said, ma, take these guns away from me.
I got so thin now, theyre draggin me down to my knees.
Oh yeah, man, do you mr. jones?

Now Ive been here so long, I almost forgot my name.
I said, lord I been here so long I almost forgot my name.
But as long as I keep touring,
Ill always be in the game, fame, brain, shame and fame and game, fame, fame....
