The Oak Ridge Boys - Before I Die lyrics

Before I die I wanna hit the Mississippi in a boat I've yet to buy Take it out in the gu'f where the water meets the sky Where nothin' on God's green Earth looks dry I wanna see that stadium in New York from a right field seat Maybe catch a home run when the new all-star goes deep And pretend that Maris and Mantle pointing up at me While I can still breathe while this old heart still has another beat It's time I put some livin' in these dreams Before I die I'm gonna learn all about how a man swallows pride Find the strength to tell my daddy he was right Tell Mama I'm sorry about that night 'Fore I'm called up I wanna be the kind of man that a woman wants to love Find the side of me that's a different kind of tough Who ain't ashamed to meet the Man above And Lord I know these are the things I should've done a long time ago When I close my eyes I wanna feel at ease If I left right now I couldn't rest in peace
