Your Flag Decal Won't Get You Into Heaven, John Prine

While digesting Reader’s Digest in the back of a dirty book store

    They’re already overcrowded from your dirty little war.
    Now Jesus don’t like killin’ no matter what the reasons for.
    And your flag decal won’t get you into Heaven anymore.

I didn’t mess a round a bit I took him up on what he said
And stuck them stickers all over my car and one on my wife’s forehead.


Well, I got my windshield so filled with flags I couldn’t see
So I ran my car upside a curb and right into a tree
By the time they got a doctor down I was already dead,
And I’ll never understand why the man standing in the Pearly Gates said…
