Lyrics below

(Waylon Jennings – Curtis Buck writers)

Well, I woke up this mornin’ it was drizzlin’ rain
Around the curve come a passanger train
Heard somebody yodel and a hobo moan
Jimmy he’s dead, he’s been a long time gone.
Been a long time gone, a long time gone.

If you wanna get to heaven, gotta D-I-E
you gotta put on your coat and T-I-E
Wanna get the rabbit out of the L-O-G
You gotta make a cold motion like D-O-G
Like D-O-G, like D-O-G, yeah.

— Instrumental —

Well, I got a good woman, what’s the matter with me?
What makes me wanna love every woman I see?
I was tri’fling when I met her now I’m tri’fling again
And every woman she sees looks like the place I came in.
Looks like the place I came in place I came in.

I got my name painted on my shirt
I ain’t no ordinary dude
I don’t have to work
I don’t have to work…
