aw heck (live) lyrics – john prine

i could be as happy as a sardine in a can
long as i got my woman
i could run stark naked and live in and old oak tree
just as long as she’s with me
my woman.

the cannibals can catch me and fry me in a pan
long as i got my woman
i could get the electric chair for a phony rap
long as she’s sittin’ in my lap
my woman.

i’d run a mile, just to see her smile
and put her lovin arms, around my neck
aw heck
my spine starts a tingling, and bells start a ringling
when she’s with me, can’t you see.

they could torture me and stretch me like a rubber band
long as i got my woman
i could jump off a cliff and never have no fear
just as long as she is near
my woman.
