Lyrics

Slip `em 10 (Hayes)

Well, I'm headin down that highway, makin double time
Just rollin down that road, to see that friend of mine
She'll be waitin down that alley
Slip `er 10, stick it , then I'll be fine

The days when the wife's a screamin, and the children set and cry
I rip them keys out of my pocket, hit the gas and I drive
On down to the darkside
Sip `em 10,. Stick it for some peace of mind

When I wake up in the morning and I fall down on the floor
I swear my sweet dear Jesus, I won't do this anymore
And then I fly
Like the angels I fly
On down to the dark side
Slip `em 10, stick it in, Oh Lord! Good bye!

When the times are gettin rough Lord
Run to the church and I pray
I've got one foot out the door
One hand in the collection plate
Then I'm headin down that road
Sip `em 10, stick it in , then I'll be ok

When I wake up in the morning and I fall down on the floor
I swear my sweet dear Jesus, I won't do this anymore
And then I fly
Like the angels I fly
On down to the dark side
Slip `em 10, stick it in, Oh Lord! Good bye!

My body's growin weaker, my blood it's runnin so cold
It seems as though my life has stepped on out from the well creased fold
I wake up dying in the morning
Slip `em 10, stick it in, another day gets rolled

And when my time it comes Lord, for you to carry me away
I hope that ride is easy, through them heavenly gates
They'll take me down to the undertaker
Slip `im 10, stick me in, I'm on my way

And I won't wake up in the morning, just to fall down on the floor
Oh Take Me Dear Sweet Jesus! To the palace of the Lord
Where I'll fly, with the angels, I'll fly
If they don't let me into heaven, I'll slip `em 10, to let me in, so move aside
If they don't let me into heaven, I'll slip `em 10, to let me in, God knows I tried
