Take Me on to Heaven Blues
by Larry Duncan

Just don't know how it started,
Hell, it must have been my crazy friends,
They'd pull me into their parties
And make me drink again and again.
They'd hold it out and say, now "How 'bout this?"
I was not rude, I could not resist,
And I'd surrender every time that they bought me a round.

I haven't made much improvement,
In fact, I'm getting worse with the years,
I'm still the one with the time when,
It's time to sit down with the beers.
But I've been thinking and I swear it's true,
Got me some knowledge that I'll share with you
Now just you listen and you'l learn how it's going down.

CHORUS
You see I found, that the liquor man he gets the profits.
The state, it takes the tax revenues.
All all I get for my time is one foggy 'ole mind
With the head crumblin', curb stumblin', key fumblin'
Take me onto heaven blues.
I finally caught my reflection, I said now who is this fool in my shoes?
With the head crumblin', curb stumblin', key fumblin',
Take me onto heaven blues

Don't get wrong, I'm not preaching
Yea, we all got to learn our own way.
Just don't forget when you're dancing,
That you still got the piper to pay.
Then comes that morning, that hurts so bad,
You can't remember how much you had.
You'll do some thinking, and you're gonna finally say –

You'll say that now the liquor man he gets the profits.
The state, it gets the tax revenues.
All all I get for my time is one foggy 'ole mind
With the head crumbling', curb stumbling', key fumbling'
Take me onto heaven blues.
You'll finally catch your reflection, and say who is this fool in my shoes?
With the head crumbling', curb stumbling, key fumblin',
Take me onto heaven blues
Take me onto heaven blues.
