I haven’t had my fun
If I don’t get well no more
I haven’t had my fun
If I don’t get well no more
You see my health is fading me
And I’m going down slow, yes I am

Won’t someone please write my mother
And tell her the shape I’m in, yeah
Please write my mother today, now
And tell her the shape I’m in
And tell her to pray for me
Forgive me for my sins

Tell her don’t send me no doctor
Doctor can’t do me no good
Mother, please don’t send me no doctor
I found out the doctor can’t do me no good
(I said) it’s all my fault
I didn’t do things I shouldn’t have

On that next train south
Mother, you can look for my clothes on
On that next train south, now
Mother, you can look for my clothes on
And if you don’t see my body
All you can do is moan

Mother, please don’t worry
This may all be in my prayer
Mother, please don’t worry no more now
This may all be in my prayer, in my prayer
You can just say your son is gone, now
Out of this world somewhere
