The Longer That I Live
Lyrics

Let me testify a little bit
Yes, yes

What is the meaning of life?
Well, I can’t talk philosophy
I know that every new sunrise
The more it dawns on me
I may be getting’ old
But I sure ain’t done yet
Cause the longer that I live
The older I want to get

My body’s just flesh and bone
Wrapped around a soul
When it’s time to leave this earth
I hope I’m the last to know
When I go I’ll be screaming
“I ain’t finished yet”
Cause the longer that I live
The older I want to get

Some folks just lay down and quit
At the end of life’s race
But I’m gonna keep on keepin’ on
With one foot in the grave

You see, I’ve climbed the mountains high
And I’ve played the valley low
And for all the gigs I’ve done
I ain’t got much to show
Though I’m never slowin’ down
Until I play my final set
Cause the longer that I live
The older I want to get

You better believe it
I want to keep on keepin’ on
With every new sunrise
The older I want to get
I want to push to keep on keepin’ on
Heading down life’s long road
I’m gonna have to be dragged
Just kickin’, screamin’
I want to live a long life
Till I get my final curtain call
