Goin' Out The Same Way.... (Roustabout)
See also: Goin' Out The Same Way....
(Wayne S Morgan)

You're goin' out the same way you came in,
No matter who you know or where you've been;
It makes no difference who you are,
skid row Joe or superstar,
'Cause you're goin' out the same way you came in.

You were born into this world without a thing,
And you'll leave it just as naked as you came;
You may drive a Coupe de Ville,
own a mansion on a hill,
Don't mean nothin' when
Saint Peter calls your name.

'Cause you're goin' out the same way you came in,
Someone will notify your next of kin;
Some will weep and some will moan,
Some will spit upon your stone,
But you're goin' out the same way you came in.

You can gather wealth and make it your life's goal,
But such things are never traded for the soul;
When you go, if you get in,
you'll find no difference among men,
No more need for all your silver and your gold.

You're goin' out the same way you came in,
Someone will notify your next of kin;
Some will weep and some will moan,
Some will spit upon your stone,
But you're goin' out the same way you came in.

Ah, you're goin' out the same way you came in,
No matter who you know or where you've been;
It makes no difference who you are,
skid row Joe or superstar,
'Cause you're goin' out the same way you came in.
It makes no difference who you are,
skid row Joe or superstar,
'Cause you're goin' out the same way you came in.

From Wikipedia:
Coupe de Ville - model of the Cadillac marque of General Motors from 1949 through 1993. It was a closed, two-door coupé, Cadillac's first pillarless hardtop. Intended as a prestige model, at $3,497 it was one of the most expensive models of the Series 62 line. It was luxuriously trimmed, with leather upholstery and chrome 'bows' in the headliner to simulate the ribs of a convertible top. The first-year Coupe de Ville sold 2,150 units, but 1950 sales were more than double, and 1951 more than doubled those of the previous year. By 1961 it was one of the company's most popular models, with annual sales above 20,000.

From Wiktionary:
Skid Row - especially dilapidated section of a city, characterized by run-down or abandoned buildings, alcoholism and homelessness, and vices such as drug dealing and prostitution.
