That's How I Wanna Go Out Lyrics

That's How I Wanna Go Out by Derek Webb  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


That's How I Wanna Go Out The doctor said, "We've run out of options
But we can stop the pain and help you sleep"
That ol' man laughed, and slowly put his shirt on
Said, "Son, dyin' here with you don't comfort me

I'll turn 88 next Tuesday if the good Lord let's me tarry
And I'll spend it on the front porch with my arm around my Mary
I've learned a lot 'bout livin' but the only thing I'm sure about now
Is I came into this world in the arms of a woman who loved me -
And that's how I wanna go out
That's how I wanna go out"

He said, "I once backpacked across Europe
With my buddies in the 2nd infantry
Back when it was rainin' German bullets
I never should have made it past nineteen
But I lived to see an angel at the altar
And lovin' her is the reason I'm alive
Doc, it feels like I'm just gettin' started
So sittin' here with you, I'm just wastin' time

I'll turn 88 next Tuesday if the good Lord let's me tarry
And I'll spend it on the front porch with my arm around my Mary
I've learned a lot 'bout livin' but the only thing I'm sure about now
Is I came into this world in the arms of a woman who loved me -
And that's how I wanna go out
That's how I wanna go out

I've learned a lot 'bout livin' but the only thing I'm sure about now
Is I came into this world in the arms of a woman who loved me -
And that's how I wanna go out
That's how I wanna go out
That's how I wanna go out"
