  • I woke up with a pounding head
    With a bottle laying in the bed
    There was a little, a little bit left
    So I picked it up and I killed the rest

    Oh I know I'm going to heaven
    But I can't go with me like this
    I need to pull myself together
    Before then
    No I ain't afraid of dying
    But what scares me to death
    Is meeting Jesus
    With whiskey on my breath

    I lost her and all my friends
    Broke all but one of my Lord's 10
    But Jesus died for all my sins
    That's how I know I'm getting in

    Oh I know I'm going to heaven
    But I can't go with me like this
    I need to pull myself together
    Before then
    No I ain't afraid of dying
    But what scares me to death
    Is meeting Jesus
    With whiskey on my breath

    Oh I know I'm going to heaven
    But I can't go with me like this
    I need to pull myself together
    Before then
    No I ain't afraid of dying
    But what scares me to death
    Is meeting Jesus
    With whiskey on my breath
    Is meeting Jesus
