Old John on his deathbed cried
I think I will wait 'til
Tomorrow to die
Sun is shining birds do sing
This sir is no day to go
Up and out the door

[Chorus:]
I've had a life that's full
Everyone's been good to me
So fire up that fiddle boy
And give me one last drink
When the sun comes up
I will leave without a fight
But the world is mine tonight

Took young Molly by the hand
Spun her 'round and back again
Clicked his heels bowed his head
Never a tear in his eye
They carried on 'til five

[Chorus:]

So raise a glass
To the dear departed ones
Won't you raise a glass
To the dear departed ones

Room was full of all his friends
Never a funeral this was the end
Drank to all who lent their hand
Everyone drank to John
Raised a glass and said

I've had a life that's full
Everyone's been good to me
So fire up that fiddle, boy
And give me one last drink
When the sun comes up
I will leave without a trace
But the world was mine today
