1 O you just as well live in union,
You got to die,
You just as well live in union,
You got to die;
It may be tomorrow,
You can't tell the minute nor the hour,
You just as well live in union,
You get to die.

2 O you just as well love your enemies,
You got to die,
You just as well love your enemies,
You got to die;
It may be tomorrow,
You can't tell the minute nor the hour,
You just as well love your enemies,
You got to die.

3 O you just as well love your brother,
You got to die,
You just as well love your brother,
You got to die;
It may be tomorrow,
You can't tell the minute nor the hour,
You just as well love your brother,
You got to die.

4 O you just as well love your sister,
You got to die,
You just as well love your sister,
You got to die;
It may be tomorrow,
You can't tell the minute nor the hour,
You just as well love your sister,
You got to die.

5 O you just as well love your preacher,
You got to die,
You just as well love your preacher,
You got to die;
It may be tomorrow,
You can't tell the minute nor the hour,
You just as well love your preacher,
You got to die.
