Slip a Number in My Coffin
Lyrics and Music by Steven Beasley
Copyright © Rio Paso Music (BMI)

Swinging, jangling, paean to the long struggle toward virtue... with a little green friend along the way. Record this now while it's still outlaw!

When I meet my maker and no longer shall I roam,
SLIP A NUMBER IN MY COFFIN
For that long journey home.

My daddy was a Christian man until his dying day.
And he worked the soil that God's own hand saw fit to throw his way.
And Mother was a simple girl with faith as strong as steel.
And they raised me to believe like them, and I pray I someday will.

But I was young and curious and stumbled into sin.
Mama whupped the Devil out of me, but he always crept back in.
From Nashville down to Houston town, he followed all the way.
And as we traveled West he sang a song, that's still with me today.

When I meet my maker and no longer shall I roam,
SLIP A NUMBER IN MY COFFIN
For that long journey home.

Now I have searched to find the light that glows for some inside.
And I hope that I will find my way with Jesus as my guide.
But in between now and then to lighten up my load.
I block the wind and fire one up, and head on down the road.

Singing when I meet my maker and no longer shall I roam,
SLIP A NUMBER IN MY COFFIN
SLIP A NUMBER IN MY COFFIN
SLIP A NUMBER IN MY COFFIN
For that long journey home.
