lyrics

I used to sleep all day - never leave my bed.
Used to sleep all day - never leave my bed.
Always wrestlin’ with them voices in my head

But then I met a woman - she came to me like a dream
Said, I met a woman - came to me like a dream
Showed me love like I ain’t never seen

She said, “We all gotta go at some point
We all gotta go at some point
We all gotta go at some point
Boy, it might be tomorrow.”

She said when you walk that road you gotta walk it all alone
When you walk that road you gotta walk it all alone
Every prodigal soul bound to make its way back home

And all your money ain’t no comfort when you’re dyin’
All you’re little green paper ain’t no comfort when you’re dyin’
Ain’t no piece of the pie that’s worth your peace of mind”
(she ain’t lyin’)

We all gotta go at some point
We all gotta go at some point
We all gotta go at some point
Lord, it might be tomorrow


So won’t you sing this song when you’re filled with doubt
Won’t you sing this song when you’re feelin’ down
There ain’t never been no other time but now!

We all gotta go at some point
We all gotta go at some point
We all gotta go at some point
Lord, it might be tomorrow
We all gotta go at some point
We all gotta go at some point
We all gotta go at some point
Oh Lord ...
It might be today!
... for all you know.
