Lyrics

I hope I get to heaven before the Devil knows I'm dead

I hope I get to heaven before the Devil knows I'm dead

Don't want to sink down low, just want to rise up high instead

 

I hope I make it out before the warden knows that I am free

I hope I make it out before the warden knows that I am free

I'm making my run, chariot please come and carry me

 

I hope I make that county line before the sheriff tracks me down

I hope I make that county line before the sheriff tracks me down

Gonna leave this all behind, start my very own one-horse town

 

I hope I get to heaven before the Devil knows I'm dead

I hope I get to heaven before the Devil knows I'm dead

Don't want to sink down low, just want to rise up high instead
