Don't Bury Me(Chords)

John Prine

Key: E
Capo on 2nd fret
D                     G   
Woke up this morning, put on my slippers,   
D                       A   
went to the kitchen and died,   
    D                         G          
And, oh, what a feeling when my soul went through the celing   
    A                        D   
and on up in to heaven I did rise!   
       G                              D   
When I got there they did say, 'John, it happened this-a-way:   
you slipped upon the floor and hit your head,  
     D                      G                 D   
And all the angels say just before you passed away   
                  A                    D   
these are the very last words that you said:   

G D 'Please don't bury me down in that cold, cold ground. A I'd rather have them cut me up and pass me all around, D Throw my brains in a huricane, G D The blind can have my eyes, G D A D the deaf can take both of my ears if they don't mind the size.'
Give my stomach to Milwakee 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 junk man and give my love to Rose. CHORUS Give my feet to the foot-loose, careless, fancy-free. Give my knees to the needy; don't you 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 good-bye. CHORUS
