How I Wanna Go Lyrics

by Joe Nichols

I used to think I'd go out with a bang
On the back of a Harley, racin' a train
Runnin' with bulls over in Spain
With the crazies

I've never been one to back off for the dare
Jumpin' through fire or fallin' through air
It didn't matter 'cause I didn't care
Until lately

Now I'll tell you how I wanna go
Under a sail with my feet on the rail of a boat
Takin' it nice and slow
Ridin' the tide with you right by my side sittin' close

With a Cuban cigar and my old guitar
Listenin' to you sing along to a song I just wrote
Missin' some notes
That's how I wanna go

When daddy died, he was just forty-eight
I can just see him and those pearly gates
Sayin', "I kinda figured
I'da been late to this party"

And nobody knows how their life's gonna end
They don't know where it will happen or when
All I can say is when I met you
Mine started

Now I'll tell you how I wanna go
Under a sail with my feet on the rail of a boat
Takin' it nice and slow
Ridin' the tide with you right by my side sittin' close

With a Cuban cigar, my beat up guitar
Listenin' to you sing along with a song I just wrote
Missin' the notes
That's how I wanna go

Takin' it nice and slow
Ridin' the tide with you right by my side sittin' close
With a Cuban cigar, a beat up guitar
Listenin' to you harmonize on a song I just wrote
Every note

That's how I wanna go
