Gene Watson Farewell Party lyrics

When the last, breath of life

Is gone from, my body

And my lips, are as cold as the sea

When my friends gather 'round

For my farewell party

Won't you, pretend you love me

There will be flowers from those

Who cry, when I'm gone

And leave you in this, world alone

I know you'll have fun

At my farewell party

I know, you'll be glad, when I'm gone

Don't be mad at me, for wanting to keep you

Till my life on this old world is through

You'll be free at the end of my farewell party

But I'll go away loving you

There will be flowers from those

Who cry, when I'm gone

And leave you in this, world alone

I know you'll have fun

At my farewell party

I know, you'll be glad, when I'm gone

Oh, I know you'll be glad when I'm gone
