The Lyrics

Should I go first and he remain
The bum will get my stuff
He's never done a lick a' work
'Cept roll weird smokes to puff
Each day I hitch the mule to plow
And make the cotton bloom
My lazy son don't care no how
Just sits there in his room
Should I go first and he remain
Oh, Lord I hope I don't
To him, I'd hate to leave a will
I'd rather leave a won't
He always says he don't feel good
And never bathes with soap
Know where he is, just by the smell,
Oh, Lord please help me cope

Beyond The Son Sets
Has seen no dawning
Lazy behavior
Self wound watch won't run
Moves very seldom,
Spends all day yawning
Beyond The Son Sets,
There sets my son..

Should I go first and he remain
He'll drain my bank account
His mother passed ten years ago
She's buried up the mount
Died from the shame of our boy, Carl
And yet, she loved him so
She strived to please his every whim
He kept her on the go
She used to hike ten miles to town
When he ran out of smokes
Then, go again, if he'd say, "Maw,
You didn't get my Cokes !"
Should I go first and he remain
Alone, he would be left
Hmm, that may not be so bad, at that
He'd surely starve to death...

This mule is my heir
When I'm departing
Beyond The Son Sets

Beyond The Son Sets
