N.C.When I get to heaven, I'm gonna shake God's hand
N.C.Thank him for more blessings than one man can stand
N.C.Then I'm gonna get a guitar and start a rock-n-roll band
N.C.Check into a swell hotel; ain't the afterlife grand?
[Chorus]
N.C. A DAnd then I'm gonna get a cocktail: vodka and ginger ale
G DYeah, I'm gonna smoke a cigarette that's nine miles long
A DI'm gonna kiss that pretty girl on the Tilt-A-Whirl
G A D'Cause this old man is goin' to town
[Verse 2]
D GThen as God as my witness, I'm gettin' back into showbusiness
AI'm gonna open up a nightclub called "The Tree of Forgiveness"
DAnd forgive everybody ever done me any harm
