Down in Flames

This song is by Chris Isaak and appears on the album First Comes The Night (2015).

Kennedy got it in a Lincoln
Caesar got it the back
Somebody told me Hank Williams died in his Cadillac

Everybody's gotta go sometime
Sooner or later they call your name
I don't know where yet, but I'm willing to bet that I'm going down in flames

Down in flames
Down in flames
When the good times end and they count my sins
I'm going down in flames

James Dean bought it on the highway
Marilyn found it in a pill
Elvis died - or did he? - they're looking for him still

Some go soft and quiet
Some go out with a bang
Well it's way too late for the pearly gates I'm going down in flames

Down in flames
Down in flames
When the good times end and they count my sins
I'm going down in flames

Add up all my misbehaving
And I'm past the point of saving
How can wrong feel so right?
Some things you just can't change...

What's it to you? HALLELUJAH!
I'm going down in flames

Add up all my misbehaving
And I'm past the point of saving
Even in this noisy barroom I can hear that long black train
I already bought my ticket, I'm going down in flames
Down in flames
Down in flames
I already bought my ticket, I'm going down in flames
Down in flames
Down in flames
When the good times end and they count my sins
I'm going down in flames
