If Only The Good Die Young Lyrics

If Only The Good Die Young by Max Stalling  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music



If Only The Good Die Young I was driving just last week
Out west where it's wide open
When out in a hot plowed field
A dust-devil clicked his heels
And headed for the road
When we intersected
This little whirlwind and me
It sure shook me good
And as it blew cross my hood
It reminded me of life

Chorus:
If only the good die young
I might live forever, I guess
Caught up on the wind
Around and round again
Just trying to do my best

I've been trying to go to church, some
But I keep getting intercepted
By the ball game on TV
Or a Zebco 303
Didn't Peter fish for men?
Chorus:
And if only the good die young
I might live forever, I guess
Casting all about
Trying to figure it all out
Just trying to do my best

There are thing that I have done
And I think I've learned my lessons
But I'd sure hate to get asked
To stand up in class
And explain to everyone

Chorus:
Why if only the good die young
I have lived forever
I'll be stuck here after school
Wondering what to do
Wondering where is everyone?

Chorus:
Ohhh, and if only the good die young
Well, we might live forever
It'll just be me and you
Stuck here in this pew
Wondering, Lord, what have we done?

Chorus:
If only the good die young
I might live forever, I guess
Caught up on the wind
Round and round again
Just trying to do my best
