  • Slipping and sliding and playing domino
    Lefting and then Righting, it's not a crime you know
    You gotta tell your story boy, before it's time to go

    Are you ready for the country because it's time to go
    Are you ready for the country because it's time to go

    I was talkin' to the preacher, said God was on my side
    Then I ran into the hangman, he said it's time to die
    You gotta tell your story boy, you know the reason why

    Are you ready for the country because it's time to go
    Are you ready for the country because it's time to go Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
