What’s In Heaven For Me?


What's heaven got to make

me want to end up there?

When I die will I become

a millionaire?

Has it got sipping whiskey

or bourbon in a glass?

Can I go and fish with

Gadabout Gaddius catching bass?

Can I play eighteen holes

under 50 with Sam Snead?

Can I kick back and smoke

an acre of wacky weed?

Has it got cuban cigars

and miles of stripper bars?

Has it got loose women

and lots of fast cars?

Can I play Bluegrass music

with Lester Flatt?

Will Babe Ruth teach me

to swing a bat?

Can I play poker and win

until the early daylight?

Can I listen to the hounddogs

chasing raccoons all night?

Will the slot machines pay

off everytime I pull an arm?

Will I relive old memories,

of out behind the barn?

Until I hear all my dreams will be true,

I'd rather stick around and enjoy life too.

To me....if I can't enjoy my time in heaven....then it's actually hell in my reality.
