The Lyrics

Some day this will be over
You'll be lying 'neath the yard
No matter what your life once was
I'll bet it seemed real hard

You don't have faith, you lose
You looked to God with laughter
Missing the good news
I'm waiting for what comes after

Hi-fiddlin' dee!
An afterlife for me
An autoharp and a gown of white
Some birdie wings and a holy light

I'll have nothing to do
This is why every night I'd pray
I won't be working for little pay
The ex-wife will go the other way
The afterlife for me

Hi-fiddlin' dee!
For all eternity
I'll wear that halo and be real proud
I'll dance around on a fluffy cloud

I'll have nothing to do
Too late to write that first symphony
The novel that I had deep in me
The love and friends that I didn't see.

The afterlife can wait!

If you think Davy Jones' locker is bad, you should see Peter Tork's. What a slob!
