Beefsteak when Im hungry, whiskey when Im dry.
Greenbacks when Im hard-up and sweet heaven when I die.
Verse 1:
When I was down in that old jailhouse my friends just walked on by.
Nobody came round to see about me an I couldnt help but wonder why.
Choirs
Break
Verse 2:
Pappy was a ramblin man, he gambled from town to town.
Im gona be a rambler boys, aint never gona settle down.
Choirs

Verse 3:
Hold me when Im sad and blue, oh baby, kiss me when I cry.
All I want is a pretty little girl to love me til the day that I die,
Choirs
End:
Sweet heaven when I die.
