ALL THAT HEAVEN WILL ALLOW

Album version


I got a dollar in my pocket, there ain't a cloud up above
I got a picture in a locket that says baby I love you
Well if you didn't look then boys then fellas don't go looking now
Well here she comes a-walking, yeah all that heaven will allow

Say hey there mister bouncer now all I wanna do is dance
But I swear I left my wallet back home in my working pants
C'mon Slim slip me in, man, I'll make it up to you somehow
I can't be late I got a date with all that heaven will allow

Rain and storm and dark skies, well now they don't mean a thing
If you got a girl that loves you and who wants to wear your ring
So c'mon mister trouble, we'll make it through you somehow
We'll fill this house with all the love and all that heaven will allow

Now some may wanna die young, man, young and gloriously
Get it straight now, mister, hey buddy that ain't me
'Cause I got something on my mind, yeah, that sets me straight and walking proud
And I want all the time, yeah all that heaven will allow
Yeah I want all the time and all that heaven will allow
