Been a whole lot of people thought me a fool
Been a time or two I thought that I was one too
Ain't a change that can hold me, ain't a thing I won't try
When I get through livin', i'm gonna die

Gonna die with my boots on, gonna go out in style
With a free-wheelin' feelin' and a honky tonk smile
And if the devil don't dodge me, gonna spit in his eye
When I get my wings, i'm gonna fly

Gonna fly away singin' I'm gonna fly
Gonna wrap my new wings 'round
Few feathered things in that free feelin' sky
Gonna reach a new heaven, higher than high
When I get my wings, hey I'm gonna fly
