Nobody Ever Dies Happy

Nobody Dies Happy

by Chuck RitenouR 2-23-2K8

verse 1:

I tried to make a deal with the Reaper, cause the Devil wouldn't talk to me

I called him all day long on my cell phone, I guess he's got caller ID

I said Reaper if I could have a good woman and a little piece of land

and a few sons to help me carry it home, then I could die a happy man.

chorus:

He said nobody ever dies happy, nobody ever has

and everybody here wants something, wants something they don't have

yeah some die young and some die old and some die in their beds

but nobody ever dies happy, nobody ever has.

verse 2:

I've known Kings and Queens and jesters, I walked 'em to the gates of hell

every damned one has a secret not a damned one ever tells

So if you've the mind, sign on the dotted line we'll get this business done

But you can never cheat the Reaper, you can't cheater the Reaper when the Reaper comes

chorus:

He said nobody ever dies happy, nobody ever has

and everybody here wants something, wants something they don't have

yeah some die young and some die old and some die in their beds

but nobody ever dies happy, nobody ever has.

yeah nobody ever dies happy, nobody ever has.

the end
