Now just look, the whole town has turned out today
To say a last prayer for me and Lord only knows
How surprised they would be, if they knew I could see them
And I could hear what they say
Oh, if they knew I could see them, and I could hear what they say

Some say, I was a good man, some disagree
Some folks are sad, some are glad to see the last of me

I know, I was happy man most of my days
And through it all, if I had a time or two, it was worth it to me
I'm the last of my family, so I'm takin' my name
No children do I leave behind to sing Rock Of Ages

For an old warn out cowboy
You can take away my body but the spirit is mine
Oh, you can take away my body, yeah
But the spirit is mine

Some say I was a good man and some disagree
Some folks are sad and some are glad to see the last of me

I know I was happy man most of my days
And through it all, if I had a time or two, it was worth it to me

Some say I was a good man, some disagree [unverified]
