When I'm gone, huh
When I'm gone

Roll my vertebrae out like dice
Let my skull be a home for the mice
Let me bleach like the bones on the beach
I'll be hard like a pit from a peach

Now the ground has a branch, huh
Now the hound has a ranch, huh

The old tressel’s just junk
The Edsel is on blocks
The old said so won’t talk
I'm a blimp that's straining, cut 'er ties
I'm a moth in training, flutter by, huh

When I'm gone
When I'm gone

I said I will have satisfaction
I will be satisfied
I said I will be satisfied

When I'm believing: satisfaction
When I'm grieving: satisfaction
When I'm shaking: satisfaction
When I'm praying, huh: satisfaction
When I'm staying: satisfaction
When I'm carousing, he heh
When I'm a thousand

I said I will have satisfaction
I will be satisfied
Before I'm gone
Before I'm gone

I will have satisfaction
I will be satisfied
I will have satisfaction
I will be satisfied

Now Mr. Jagger and Mr. Richards
I will scratch where I’ve been itching
Now Mr. Jagger and Mr. Richards
I will scratch where I’ve been itching

Before I'm gone
Before I'm gone
Before I'm gone
Before I'm gone, wow

Let me go back into the barrel
Let the bullet go back into the barrel
Let the bullet go back into the barrel
Let the bullet go back into the barrel

Before I'm gone
Before I'm gone
I said I will have satisfaction, huh

Let the bullet go back into the barrel
Let the bullet go back into the barrel
Take a left off the straight and the narrow
Let the bullet go back into the barrel, huh

Wow
Wow
Before I'm gone
