Now just look, the whole tow-own
Has turned out today
To say a last prayer for me
And Lord only knows
How surprised they would be
If they knew I could see them
And I could hear what they say
Whoa, if they knew I could see them
And I could hear what they say

Some say I was a good ma-an
Some disagree-ee-ee
Some folks are sad
So-ome are glad
To see the last of me-ee-ee
I know I was happy ma-an
Most of my day-ay-ays
And through it all
If I had a time or two
It was worth it to me

I'm the last of my fam'ly
So I'm takin' my name
No children do I leave behi-i-ind
To sing Rock Of Ages
For an old warn out cowboy
You can take away my body
But the spirit is mine
Woh, you can take away my body, yeah
But the spirit is mine

Some say I was a good ma-an
And some disagree-ee-ee
Some folks are sad
And some are glad
To see the last of me-ee-ee
I know I was happy ma-an
Most of my day-ay-ays
And through it all
If I had a time or two
It was worth it to me

Some say I was a good ma-an
Some dis-a-gree...
