 Long as they need you, you don't need love"

 I was way too far out in the world, but I still put on for my city
                                                 Em                      F 
 I was handin' out too much milk money, too much kitten, and ass, and titties
   F                        Em 
 I lost my voice like a pastor, faster than a Harlem shimmy
 Dm                                     Em 
 But I guess that's what you get for tryin' to make heartbreak pretty
 Dm                                 Em 
 Uh, they say, "Life's a bitch" (They say, "Life's a bitch")

 So please, if you're pennin' my eulogy, just say I tried
                             Em 
 And that's word to Phineas, Jess and Si
 Dm 
 And if I don't wake up in Heaven, then it was one hell of a ride
  F     Em Dm Em 
 Yeah, yeah
                       Em                             F Em 
 If I don't wake up in Heaven, it was one hell of a ride
              Dm Em 
 A hell of a ride

 [OUTRO]

 Uh, Momma said money can't buy me happiness

 So I copped a G5, tried to fly myself up next to it

 I fucked up some commas just to dot dot dot, where's the rest of it?

 This what clean look like when clean took life and made a mess of it

 Had to realize I'm just blessed to it

 You can't take it all with you, but you can remember the best of it

 I pray for peace within myself and no more regrets with it

 'Cause when I looked at my soul in the Mississippi, it reflected it

 And if you know me, you're right next to it

 I'm everything you thought I was

 I'm everything I thought I was

 It was everything I thought it was

 It was everything I thought it was
