      Lyrics for John Prine - "Please Don't Bury Me"

      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
      That these were the very last words
      That you said"

      "Please don't bury me
      Down in that cold, cold ground
      No, I?d rather 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 to get 'em 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"

      "But please don't bury me
      Down in that cold, cold ground
      I?d rather have 'em cut me up
      And pass me all around"

      "Throw my brain in a hurricane
      The blind can have my eyes
      And the deaf can take both of my ears
      If they don't mind the size, oh man!"

      "Give my feet to the footloose
      Careless, fancy free
      And 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
      I?d rather 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, that's right"
