​Last Night on Earth Again

This song is by Over the Rhine and appears on the greatest hits album Discount Fireworks (2007).

Down south where Elvis is king
And Jesus is Lord
We drove just shy of forever
In our wheezy old Ford
Hey love, don't you think this life
Has grown a little absurd?
He said, Not bad for a Yankee girl
Destined for Betty Ford
(Oh Lord I said)

Help me, it's our last night on earth again
Help me, it's our last night on earth again
I've been livin' this so-called life since I can't remember when
Help me, it's our last night on earth again

Down in Texas where guns and guitars
Are the friends a man loves best
You might feel like your spinning wheels
Are truly headed West
Someone said the best we can hope for
Is to make a beautiful mess
I put my soul up for sale
And the whole world asked,
Could you take any less?

Help me, it's our last night on earth again
Help me, it's our last night on earth again
I told Jesus he could have my heart
He said, What kinda shape's it in?
Help me, it's our last night on earth again

Down South where Elvis is king
And Jesus is Lord
We played our songs in a field
Where they found a Civil War sword
I was singin' Amazing Grace
And someone yelled, Freebird
I strummed and smiled to myself and said,
Honey, it's a bitch to be ignored

Help me, it's our last night on earth again
Help me, it's our last night on earth again
I've been wonderin' my whole life,
How's this goin' to end?
Help me, it's our last night on earth again
