GATES OF HEAVEN

Oh my mother she went to heaven

And the last word that she said

Son you won't never follow me

Because you're so mean & bad

Oh but I want to go to heaven

I want to see my mama there

But when I stand before the gates of heaven

With a bucket full of sins

Lord I'm a bad ass motherfucker

But won't you please let me in

 

So I'm a motherless pilgrim

I miss her everywhere

I want to go to heaven

I want to see my mother there

I want to play the golden harp

I want to hear my mama sing

But when I stand before the gates of heaven

With a bucket full of sins

Lord I'm a bad ass motherfucker

But won't you please let me in

 

(update 2015:)

Flew in Detroit Airport

Two ears & a suit

Sent him back to Germany

His papers were no good

Oh but he wants to go to Cookeville

He wants to play at Muddy Roots

So when he stands before the gates of customs

With a bucket full of sins

Sir, he's a badd ass motherfucker

But won't you please just let him in
