  • Well I've got an old friend, he's wilder than you are
    I don't understand how he stays on his feet
    Just when you're thinking he's gonna go too far
    He pulls it all in and he don't miss a beat

    He's walked beside me, he's never denied me
    If hee had to hide me then by God he would
    One thing he taught that I carry inside me
    We all got where we are as fast as we could

    Saints are just sinners who never quit tryin'
    Losers are winners who pick their own day
    And we're all just beginners when it comes time for dyin'
    But rest your mind easy 'cause you'll die anyway

    Well I heard of this poet, come hell or high water
    Wrote a new poem a day every day of the week
    I asked what if some days don't work like they oughta
    He said I lower my standards and I get me some sleep


    So you judges and juries and wild vigilantes
    If you got my number, my number's been changed
    Me and my woman gonna lay around this shanty
    Keep makin' love 'til that's all that remains


    Rest your mind easy 'cause you'll die...anyway
