  • If they ever drop the big one, I got me a plan
    I won't be in no bunker eatin' peaches from a can
    I'll be holed up in the basement with two very special guests
    A big ol' stack of Flatt and Scruggs and a bag of Willie's best

    Goin' out on a high note
    A blaze of glory lit in my left hand
    I'm goin' out on a high note
    Like a tenor in an old hillbilly band

    Mmhm

    Now it ain't Armageddon, but the weekend's finally here
    Yeah, some folks wanna rock and roll and drink a downtown beer
    Oh, but me and my sweet baby just crossed the great divide
    And we're rollin' like a banjo straight into Telluride

    Goin' out on a high note
    A blaze of glory lit in my left hand
    I'm goin' out on a high note
    Like a tenor in an old hillbilly band

    Ain't gonna run, ain't gonna hide
    I'm just gonna take a ride
    Yeah, I'll be fine on judgement day
    With a G-Run and a J

    I'm goin' out on a high note
    A blaze of glory lit in my left hand
    I'm goin' out (I'm going out) on a high note
    Like a tenor in an old hillbilly band
    Like a tenor in an old hillbilly band
    Yeah, that's my plan Writer/s: Charlie Worsham, Jim Beavers
