I have had my fun
If I don't get well no more
I have had my fun
If I don't get well no more

My health is failing me
And I'm going down slow

Please write to my mother
Tell her the shape I'm in
Please write to my mother
Tell her the shape I'm in

Tell her to pray for me
Forgive me for my sins

Tell her don't send no doctor
Doctor can't do no good
Tell her don't send no doctor
Doctor can't do no good

It's all my fault
Didn't do the things I should

Mother, please don't worry
This is all in my pride
Mother, please don't worry
This is all in my pride

Just say your son is gone
Out of this world somewhere
