Till My Getup Has Got Up and Gone

Till My Getup Has Got Up and Gone
(Bud Logan, Charles Snoddy)

I'm gonna have some fun while I can,
For someday I'm gonna be a much older man.
I'm gonna love 'em and leave 'em
'Cause it ain't gonna be long
Till my getup has got up and gone.

I'm gonna spin my wheels while I can,
Huntin' new ground, travelin' new land,
And anywhere I hang my hat
Is gonna be my home
Till my getup has got up and gone.

BRIDGE: When my getup has got up and gone,
        I ain't gonna feel like I do now.
        My hair will turn to gray before long.
        I'll smile at the mem'ries I'm makin' now.

I'm gonna make the mark that all can see.
I don't want anyone forgettin' me,
And when I let my hair down,
I'm gonna come on strong
Till my getup has got up and gone.

(Repeat bridge and last verse.)

TAG: Till my getup has got up and gone,
     Till my getup has got up and gone.

As recorded by Ernest Tubb.
