lyrics

I know there's a heaven
Because I've been to hell
And death is my highest reward
Anyone can see I've taken a few
And I think I can take a few more

The good lord knows I've taken a few
And I think I can take a few more

Working and being
No difference between them
Mind and body the same
I move and I speak and I strain and I creak and
Peace comes when I don't feel a thing

I move and I speak and I strain and I creak and
Peace comes when I don't feel a thing

If I never (x2)
Move my old bones again
I'll be happy and happy I'll be happy then

Time is a straight road
And I count my miles
Every time that old sun goes down
Ain't no pleasure sweeter
Than a good six feet deeper
In a cold coffin under the ground

If I never (x2)
Move my old bones again
I'll be happy and happy I'll be happy then

If I never (x2)
Whoah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
And death is my highest reward

If I never (x2)
Move my old bones again
I'll be happy and happy I'll be happy then
