lyrics

i was born in a mining town by the name of bluefield, wv. now i'm sixty-seven and i lived a good life. i got about an hour left in me. been comatose for the past six months. i've had plenty of time to think. i can hear my family talking to me. i'd give anything to speak. i need a miracle tonight. please god give me that right. just three little words. one last hug and one more kiss. i got to tell my baby that she's going to be missed, and i'll be watching up above. i met a redhead at the age of twenty-one. i knew i had to make her mine. had a loving marriage of fourty-five. still proud to call her my wife. i can hear her crying over me. her tears are falling on my cheeks. now don't you worry everything will be fine. you know i hate to see you cry. i can't make it through the night. at least i put up a fight. this is not the end. one goodbye for now so long. i'm not here, but i won't be gone. i'll be watching from afar. my time is up. i'm heading home. my love and memories? well there coming with me, and they're staying with you
