Light is fading along the shore
I want one sweet spoonful more
but I'm not ready for that one last dance
I give her one on the nose if I get the chance
but if she takes me oh then she takes me
iffen she take me then I'm going home
and if she wants me I guess that she'll have me
all I ask is that she swallow me whole

Back of the line, am I out of time?
Back of the line, shadow on my mind.

Sometime the reaper come in a white coat
sometime he come like bird from the sky
sometime she comes like a fish out of water
seems like everybody wanting to fly
But if it's my time then it's the right time
I can't cry I never got to roam no
and if a song plays along in my mind
then there's something to whistle
as I'm on my way home.

Back of the line, am I out of time?
Back of the line, shadow on my mind.

Well there's not a whole lot on offer
just an old bag of bones
who's already had much to suffer
I would hope that she would leave me alone
But if she takes me oh then she takes me
iffen she takes me then I'm going home
and if a song rolls along in my mind
then I'll be whistling as I on my way home

Back of the line, am I out of time?
Back of the line, shadow on my mind.
