When I die my momma gets my soul
                                                    G
here I'm fading just slower than the daylight and I still don't know
     F              C                 Am     G/Am      D7
what will come to collect me or which way it will come from
       F                    G             C
but it won't be long now if I'm gonna die young

[verse]
Find somewhere warm for my dear Caroline
Tell her that I’m sorry and I’ll be just fine
Tell her I went easy when I knew I’d lost the fight
why would I lose sore nobody ever won at life

[verse]
Gather all my friends down at the bar
Divvy up my records and hand out my guitars
tell them pull a little harder tonight when they raise hell
make a big enough scene to keep the devil off my trail

[verse]
Tell my girl to keep that sparkle in her eye
it’s alright she couldn’t love me and it was good of her to try
surely it’ll be the angels that call her when she’s old
if heaven don’t want her then i don’t want to go

[verse]
Don't give me to no cold and deep, dark hole
reduce me to an urn and lighten up your load
I know God is a good man cause my momma knows him well
but the devils fast so tell dad to drive like hell

[verse]
When I die my momma gets my soul
here I'm fading just slower than the daylight and I still don't know
what will come to collect me or which way it will come from
so when I die my momma gets my soul
