“I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive” (Hank Williams)

Now you’re lookin’ at a man that’s gettin’ kind-a mad
I had lots of luck but it’s all been bad
No matter how I struggle and strive
I’ll never get out of this world alive

My fishin’ pole’s broke the creek is full of sand
My woman run away with another man

No matter how I struggle and strive
I’ll never get out of this world alive

A distant uncle passed away and left me quite a batch
And I was living high until that fatal day
A lawyer proved I wasn’t born
I was only hatched

Every thing’s against me and it’s got me down
If I jumped in the river I would probably drown

No matter how I struggle and strive
I’ll never get out of this world alive

These shabby shoes I’m wearin’ all the time
Is full of holes and nails
And brother if I stepped on a worn out dime
I bet a nickel I could tell you if it was heads or tails

I’m not gonna worry wrinkles in my brow
‘Cause nothin’s ever gonna be alright nohow

No matter how I struggle and strive
I’ll never get out of this world alive

And a goodbye to you, 2014…

J.W.
