Jimmie Dale Gilmore - I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive lyrics

Well, you're lookin' at a guy that's gettin' kinda mad
I had lot of luck but it's all been bad
No matter how I struggle and strive
I'll never get out of this world alive

My fishin' pole's broke, the creek is full of sand
My woman run away with another man
No matter how I struggle and strive
I'll never get out of this world alive

A distant uncle passed away, he left me quite a batch
Yes I was livin' high until that fatal day
A lawyer proved I wasn't born
I was only hatched

Everything's agin' me and it's got me down
If I jumped in the river I would probably drown
No matter how I struggle and strive
I'll never get out of this world alive

These shabby shoes I'm wearin' all
Are full of holes and nails
Yes and brother if I stepped on a worn out dime
I bet a nickel I could tell you if it's heads or tails

If it was rainin' gold I wouldn't stand a chance
I wouldn't have a pocket in my patched up pants
No matter how I struggle and strive
I'll never get out of this world alive

A distant uncle passed away, he left me quite a batch
And yes I was livin' high until that fatal day
A lawyer proved I wasn't born
I was only hatched

I'm not gonna worry wrinkles in my brow
'Cause nothing's ever gonna turn out alright now
No matter how I struggle and strive
I'll never get out of this world alive
I'll never get out of this world alive
