My Morning Jacket — I Will Be There When You Die lyrics

Joe was born in new york city, son of paul and catherine
Always down and always out,
But his 'morrows always seemed just fine
There will be bigotry and there will be open minds
There will be days of peace; you'll never have the time
As long as you keep a straight face,
I will be there when you die
I was born in east kentucky, home of where the grass is dyed
Always down and always out,
But my 'morrows always seemed just fine
There will be bigotry and there will be open minds
There will be days of peace you'll never have the time
As long as you keep a straight face,
I will be there when you die.
