lyrics

You live a good life
You kept your house clean
You went to church on Sunday

You fed the children
You work hard every day
You bit your tongue if you got nothin’
nice to say

Some say you’re saintly
The first on the scene
You often wonder
what it all means

Sometimes life is hard
you try not to frown
But no matter what you do
one day you’re going down

Chorus:

One day you’re going down

Verse 2:


You live a fast life
you got cars and stars
and women and everything
runs hot and cool

But you feel deep
and you take the time
you don’t own a pedestal
And you share your wine

Sometimes you work on Sunday,
No praises to sing
you don’t need no excuses to
do the right thing

You say “I can't take it with me
So I’ll live it up now
Because I know
One day I'm going down”

Chorus:

Verse 3:

You live a sad life
your daddy beat you down
Your mama drank herself
to death alone

So you got high
and you got low
and every day you
pulled a heavy load

And you wonder
If that dark cloud
will go away
And you pray every day

Please my friend stop wishin'
You were 6 feet underground
There's always time to change your mind
before you go down

Bridge:

Brother if you know the best way
to live my life, to spend my time
Sister if you got the plan
please help me understand

One day you're goin' down
