Willie Nelson – Heaven Is Closed lyrics
[Chorus]
Heaven is closed and hell's overcrowded
So I think I think I'll just stay where I am
So many people, well it sure is lonely
Who even gives a damn?
I hear someone callin', "Come in from the craziness"
But there ain't nobody around
Heaven is closed and hell's overcrowded
So I think I think I'll just stay where I am

[Verse 1]
Heaven left for California on a midnight plane
Hell stayed behind so I wouldn't be lonely
For reasons that's hard to explain
Could it be hell is heaven and that heaven is hell
And each one are both the same thing?
Well I hope heaven finds what she's lookin' for
And that hell treats us both just the same

[Chorus]
Heaven is closed and hell's overcrowded
So I think I think I'll just stay where I am
So many people, well it sure is lonely
Who even gives a damn?
I hear someone callin', "Come in from the craziness"
But there ain't nobody around
Heaven is closed and hell's overcrowded
So I think I think I'll just stay where I am

[Bridge]
Let's burn one for those that's livin' in hell
Let's burn one for those who think they're in heaven
Burn one for everyone in the whole world
And anyone stuck in-between

[Chorus]
Heaven is closed and hell's overcrowded
So I think I think I'll just stay where I am
So many people, well it sure is lonely
Who even gives a damn?
I hear someone callin', "Come in from the craziness"
But there ain't nobody around
Heaven is closed and hell's overcrowded
So I think I think I'll just stay where I am
Yeah heaven is closed and hell's overcrowded
So I think I think I'll just stay where I am
