John Prine – When I Get to Heaven – The Tree of Forgiveness

[Ed. Note: Not only does the man write seriously a catchy tune, but if you listen carefully, I think he was trying to tell us that something was coming his way, regardless of Coronavirus… Just Sayin’.]

When I Get to Heaven, 2018
by John Prine

When I get to heaven, I’m gonna shake God’s hand
Thank him for more blessings than one man can stand
Then I’m gonna get a guitar and start a rock-n-roll band
Check into a swell hotel; ain’t the afterlife grand?

And then I’m gonna get a cocktail: vodka and ginger ale
Yeah, I’m gonna smoke a cigarette that’s nine miles long
I’m gonna kiss that pretty girl on the tilt-a-whirl
‘Cause this old man is goin’ to town
