When I Get My Wings
Written and recorded by Billy Joe Shaver

Been a whole lot of people thought me a fool
C G7
Been a time or two I thought that I was one too
Ain't a change that can hold me ain't a thing I won't try
C G7 C
When I get through livin' I'm gonna die

Gonna die with my boots on gonna go out in style
D7 G7
With a free wheelin' feelin' and a honky tonk smile
And if the devil don't dodge me gonna spit in his eye
C G7 C G7 C
When I get my wings I'm gonna fly fly fly

Gonna fly away singin' I'm gonna fly

Gonna wrap my new wings round
Few feathered things in that free feelin' sky
Gonna reach a new heaven higher than high
C G7 C
When I get my wings I'm gonna fly high high
Gonna fly away singin'
