Lyrics

Hank Williams died when I was five
He sang I'll never get out of this world alive
Now it's been a long time since I was that kid
And I've seen a lot more than Hank ever did
I've done the down and out in every dark end dive
But I'll never get out of your love alive

Sam Coke met the woman at the well
She told him that his song was something he could never sell
And I think he knew a change was gonna come
Still he lived too fast and he died too young
Well dying young I have survived
But I'll never get out of your love alive

I got washed in the blood of Bill Monroe
When he sang about the the blues in the body and soul
He believed in a God that could raise the dead
Still it's a mighty dark night to travel he said
I've seen a mighty dark night and I made that drive
But I'll never get out of your love alive

Robert Johnson had a hellhound on his trail
Drove him to the coffin like a hammer and a nail
It takes a powerful man to carry that load
When your trying to beat the devil to the old crossroads
I wrestled the devil lived to testify
But I'll never get out of your love alive
I'll never get out of your love alive
I'll never get out of your love alive
I'll never get out of your love alive
