Liner Notes: 

Okay I cheated. I wrote this yesterday, and it took about 2 hours - but I knew I wanted to use the prompt about it being the "end"

Thanks to everyone to joining in on my Sunday Skirmishes this 5090!

Lyrics: 

We’re headin’ to Armageddon
It’s gettin’ near the end
We’ll all be regrettin’
The eternity we’ll spend
The Beast and his armies
Have moved on in
Jumpin’ Jehoshaphat
We’re in a tailspin
We’re headin’ to Armageddon
It’s gettin’ near the end

The Apocalypse’s got us in a fix
It’s nix to fun and games
Satan has a long list
Of our cheatin’, lyin’ names
The flames are a-climbin’
How high, who can tell
It couldn’t be worse timin’
We’ll burn and writhe in Hell
The Apocalypse’s got us in a fix
It’s nix to fun and games

Oh woe is me and you
We shouldn’t have been a’sinnin’
There’ll be trials and tribulations
While the Devil is a’grinnin’

We’re headin’ to Armageddon
It’s gettin’ near the end
We’ll all be regrettin’
The eternity we’ll spend
The Beast and his armies
Have moved on in
Jumpin’ Jehoshaphat
We’re in a tailspin
We’re headin’ to Armageddon
It’s gettin’ near the end
It’s gettin’ near the end

Going to hell should indeed be good ol' countrified fun! Great country groove, fun words and delightful singing.

Y'all should come and sing this one down here in the bible belt. You'd be a star!

Thanks so much for our Sundays together.

This has such a wonderfully catchy country feel that is truly irresistible! Love the flow of the melody and how you deliver the lyrics so fluidly! Great song for this skirmish!

Looking at the lyrics I thought they flow very smoothly throughout. The first part tells us what is happening, Armageddon, that's a pretty big deal...lol. The second section speaks of the apocalypse and relates to Armageddon. Nice drop with the sin and grin rhymes. Chorus and out...very nice...I'm ready for the audio now...hold. Nice country music...guitar singing moves quickly and sounds good. Sounds double time but clearly sounds right. Can clearly understand the lyrics...good melody...all instruments sound great and the audio ends quickly. Yeah, this was really good Corinne, enjoyed it very much. Thanks for hosting always good prompt skirmishes.

Jumpin’ Jehoshaphat! It's a hoedown for the hellbound! Marvelous delivery and writing, especially of those rapid-fire lines. Lovely tongue-in-cheek cheerfulness. And in spite of the subject, the music actually does have an uplifting effect.

I like the rhyme in the title, it pulled me in.

There should be more cheerful upbeat songs about the apocalypse! I’m cheerfully preparing now, it’s inevitable, but it just might be fun. Count me in!
