"I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive" lyrics

I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive

Well you're looking at a guy
That's getting kinda mad
I had lot of luck
But it's all been bad
No matter how I struggle and strive
I'll never get out of this world alive

My fishing pole's broke
The creek is full of sand
My woman run away
With another man
No matter how I struggle and strive
I'll never get out of this world alive

A distant uncle passed away
And left me quite a batch
And yes I was living high
Until that fatal day
A lawyer proved I wasn't born
I was only hatched

Everything's against me
And it's got me down
If I jumped in the river
I would probably drown
No matter how I struggle and strive
I'll never get out of this world alive

These shabby shoes
I'm wearing, Lord
They're full of holes and nails
And brother if I stepped on a worn out dime
I bet a nickel I could tell you
If it's heads or tails

If it was raining gold
I wouldn't stand a chance
I wouldn't have a pocket
In my patched up pants
No matter how I struggle and strive
I'll never get out of this world alive

A distant uncle passed away
And left me quite a batch
And yes I was living high
Until that fatal day
A lawyer proved I wasn't born
I was only hatched

I ain't gonna worry
Wrinkles in my brow
Cause nothing's ever gonna
Be alright now
No matter how I struggle and strive
I'll never get out of this world alive
I'll never get out of this world alive
