please dont bury me

John Prine



 CF
 Woke up this morning, put on my slippers
 CG
 Walked in the kitchen and died
 CF
And oh, what a feelin' when my soul went through the ceiling
 GC
And on up into heaven I did rise
 FC
When I got there they did say John it happened this a-way
 G
You slipped upon the floor and hit your head
 CFC
And all the angels say just before you passed away
 GC
These were the very last words that you said
 FC
 Please don't bury me down in the cold, cold ground
 G
No, I druther have them cut me up and pass me all around
 CFC
 Throw my brain in a hurricane and the blind can have my eyes
 FCGC
And the deaf can take both my ears if they don't mind the size
Give my stomache to Milwaukee if they run out of beer
Put my socks in a cedar box, just get them out of here
Venus de Milo can have my arms, look out, I've got your nose
Sell my heart to the junk man and give my love to rose
CHORUS & INSTRUMENTAL VERSE
Give my feet to the footloose, careless, fancy free
Give my knees to the needy, don't pull that stuff on me
Hand me down my walkin' cane it's a sin to tell a lie
Send my mouth way down south, and kiss my ass goodbye
CHORUS
