Verse 2: 
Well my daddy said son you're livin' your life all wrong 
Lightning's gonna strike you down before too long 
The man upstairs, he don't like what you do 
When you reach those pearly gates you ain't getting through 
Well I've been thinking, got a brand new plan 
I'm gonna start a little church down at the stumble-inn 
Yeah that's right gonna start my own religion 
We'll be drinkin' and a dancin' at the church of Hank Williams
