  • If I die a drinkin', I won't feel much pain
    'Cause Lord we all got demons that drive us all insane
    I'll die just like my daddy with a bottle in my hand
    So if I die a drinkin', that's just who I am

    If I die a cheatin' in the arms of another's girl
    If in a fit of rage and jealousy, he takes me from this world
    I can't say I'd blame him, I'd probably do the same
    So if I die a cheatin', I'll live with the shame

    If I die a singer of some old lonesome song
    We're all drawn to heartache when someone's done you wrong
    The last song I'll be playin' is “When the Saints Go Marching In”
    So if I die a singing, Lord, my song will never end

    If I die a prayin' to Jesus on my knees
    Everyone I've ever loved will be waiting there for me
    The dirt can have my body but the Lord He owns my soul
    So if I die a praying, Lord, I ain't afraid to go
    If I die a praying, Lord, I ain't afraid to go Writer/s: Ashley Monroe, Vincent Grant Gill
