Please Dont Bury Me Song Lyrics

Woke up this morning
Put on my slippers
Walked in the kitchen and died
And oh what a feeling!
When my soul went through the ceiling
And on up into heaven I did ride
When I got there they did say
John, it happened this way
You slipped upon the floor
And hit your head
And all the angels say
Just before you passed away
These were the very last words
That you said

*****

Please don’t bury me
Down in the cold cold ground
No, I’d druther have ’em cut me up
And pass me all around
Throw my brain in a hurricane
And the blind can have my eyes
And the deaf can take both of my ears
If they don’t mind the size

*****

Give my stomach to Milwaukee
If they run out of beer
Put my socks in a cedar box
Just get ’em out of here
Venus de Milo can have my arms
Look out! I’ve got your nose
Sell my heart to the Junkman
And give my love to Rose

*****

But please don’t bury me
Down in that cold, cold ground
No, I’d druther have ’em cut me up
And pass me all around
Throw my brain in a hurricane
And the blind can have my eyes
And the deaf can take both of my ears
If they don’t mind the size

*****

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 walking cane
It’s a sin to tell a lie
Send my mouth way down south
And kiss my ass goodbye

*****

But please don’t bury me
Down in that cold cold ground
No, I’d druther have ’em cut me up
And pass me all around
Throw my brain in a hurricane
And the blind can have my eyes
And the deaf can take both of my ears
If they don’t mind the size..

Please Dont Bury Me Song Chords


Woke up this mornin, put on my slippers

Walked in the kitchen and died

And oh what a feeling

When my soul went through the ceiling

And on up into heaven I did rise

When I got there they did say

“John it happened this ole way,

You slipped upon the floor and hit your head”

And all the angel say just before you passed away

These were the very last words that you said


Please don’t bury me down in the cold cold ground

I’d rather have them cut me up and pass me all around

Throw my brain in a hurricane and the blind can have my eyes

And the deaf can take both my ears

If they don’t mind the size


Give my stomach 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 got your nose

Sell my heart to the junk man and give my love to rose


Please don’t bury me down in that cold cold ground

I’d rather have them cut me up and pass me all around

Throw my brain in a hurricane and the blind can have my eyes

And the deaf can take both my ears

if they don’t mind the size


Give my feet to the foot loose ,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


Please don’t bury me down in the cold cold ground

I’d rather have them cut me up and pass me all around

Throw my brain in a hurricane and the blind can have my eyes

And the deaf can take both my ears

if they don’t mind the size
