Lyrics

I died happy in my sleep
I died happy in my sleep
Our children around
And you looking down from—

Heaven's a julep on the porch
Heaven's a julep on the porch
You and me rocking
A grandfather clock is
Tick, tick, tocking
To the time we used to wind it

She brought the sugar and the mint
She brought the sugar and the mint
And he brought the whiskey
Asked for my blessing
"Yes, sir, I know she's—"

Heaven's a julep on the porch
Heaven's a julep on the porch
You and me rocking
A grandfather clock is
Tick, tick, tocking
To the time we used to wind it

God, the time we used to wind it

Now that time stands still
We can drink our fill
Out of silver that will never
Tarnish like we will

You were just a girl that I should meet
You were the girl that I would meet
For drinks in the backyard
A beautiful daughter
Lifetime's a summer
And love there will after

I died happy in my sleep
I died happy in my sleep
Our children around
And you looking down from—

Heaven's a julep on the porch
Heaven's a julep on the porch
You and me rocking
A grandfather clock is
Tick, tick, tick, tick, tocking
To the time we used to wind it

God, the time we used to wind it

Oh it's tick, tick, tick, tick
Tick, tick, tick, tick, tocking
To the time we used to wind it
