I once had a mansion and lived in my glory
But now I'm down to my last dime
I had a sweetheart but I was unfaithful
Oh I've lived a lot in my time

I fought the grim reaper down in the dark valley
Prayed when the sun wouldn't shine
I've looked through the bars of a cold lonely prison
Yes, I've lived a lot in my time

I've been a soldier and I've been a rambler
Once thought that everything was fine
I've put in the cornfields, I've picked in the cotton
Yes I've lived a lot in my time

I've walked with our Master down in the dark valley
And wonderful peace I did find
Someday I'll journey to Eden's green pastures
I've lived a lot in my time
