He was just an old country doctor in a little country town
As day by day in his kindly way he'd serve us one and all
Though he needed his dimes and there were times that he'd receive a fee
He had to sell his furniture couldn't pay his office rent
And on the hitchin' post at the kerb below to advertise his wares
And one day he didn't answer when they knocked upon his door
They found him there in that old black suit on his face was a smile of content
So they opened up his ledger and what they saw gave their hearts a pull
Old Doc should had a funeral fine enough for a king
Cept Jones an undertaker he did mighty well
And the funeral procession it wasn't much for grace and pomp and the style
We wanted to give him a monument we kinda figured we owed him one
We pulled up that old hitchin' post where Doc had nailed a sign
Now the rains and the snows have washed away our white trimmin's of paint
But you can still see that old hitchin' post as if in answer to our prayers
