Kenny Chesney – Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven Lyrics

[Verse 1] Preacher told me last Sunday morning’
Son, you better start livin’ right
You need to quit the women and whiskey
And carrying on all night

[Verse 2] Don’t you wanna hear him call your name
When you’re standing’ at the pearly gates
I told the preacher, “Yes I do”
But I hope they don’t call today
I ain’t ready

[Chorus] Everybody wants to go to heaven
Have a mansion high above the clouds
Everybody wants to go to heaven
But nobody want to go now

[Verse 3] Said preacher maybe you didn’t see me
Throw an extra twenty in the plate
There’s one for everything I did last night
And one to get me through today
Here’s a ten to help you remember
Next time you got the good Lord’s ear
Say I’m coming’ but there ain’t no hurry
I’m having’ fun down here
Don’t you know that

[Chorus] Everybody wants to go to heaven
Have a mansion high above the clouds
Everybody wants to go to heaven
But nobody want to go now

[Bridge] Someday I want to see those streets of gold in my halo
But I wouldn’t mind waiting at least a hundred years or so

[Chorus] Everybody wants to go to heaven
Have a mansion high above the clouds
Everybody wants to go to heaven
But nobody want to go now

[Chorus] Everybody wants to go to heaven
Have a mansion high above the clouds
Everybody wants to go to heaven
But nobody want to go now
