If I die before I get it done,
will you decide.
I'll take my words and turn them into sounds,
it will survive.
Because a long time ago,
I knew not to deprive.

It's safe out there and now you're everywhere,
just like the sky.
And you are love,
you are the love supreme,
you are the rye.
And when you hear this,
You know its your jam,
It's your goodbye.

(Chorus)

Like I said you know I'm almost dead,
you know I'm almost gone.
And when the drummer drums,
its gonna play my song,
to carry me along.

Like I said you know I'm almost dead,
You know I'm almost gone.
And when the boatman comes to ferry me away,
to where we all belong.

We your cost,
when we were feeling lost,
it's just the time.
Kateri cried,
the day her lover died,
she recognized.
Because ya gave her,
a life of real love,
it's no surprise.

The night's are long,
but the years are short,
when you're alive.
Way back when,
will never be again,
it was a time.
It's gonna catch you,
so glad I met you,
to walk a line.

(Chorus)

Like I said you know I'm almost dead,
you know I'm almost gone.
And when the drummer drums,
he's gonna play my song,
to carry me along.

Like I said you know I'm almost dead,
You know I'm almost gone.
And when the boatman comes to ferry me away,
to where we all belong.

Come get me
Hey!

Hey!

Yeah!
Yeah!
Yeah!

Like I said you know I'm almost dead,
you know I'm almost gone.
And when the drummer drums,
its gonna play my song,
to carry me along.

Like I said you know I'm almost dead,
You know I'm almost gone.
And when the boatman comes to ferry me away,
to where we all belong.

Let me live, so when it's time to die,
Even the Reaper cries.
Let me die, so when it's time to live,
Another sun will rise.

I said yeah!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
I said yeah!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

Like I said you know I'm almost dead,
you know I'm almost gone.
(I said yeah!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!)
And when the drummer drums,
its gonna play my song,
to carry me along.
(I said yeah!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!)
Like I said you know I'm almost dead,
You know I'm almost gone.
(I said yeah!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!)
And when the boatman comes to ferry me away,
to where we all belong.
(I said yeah!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!)

Like I said you know I'm almost dead,
you know I'm almost gone.
Like I said you know I'm almost dead,
you know I'm almost gone.
Like I said you know I'm almost dead,
you know I'm almost gone.
