If I should die before I turn 43
Bury me beneath the justice tree
Bury me with the lies I told
Bury me with the rusted sword
If I should die before I turn 46
Lay me next to old Saint Chris
Dress me in my shirt of blue
And my favorite picture of you

If I should not see 49
Bury me with my last silver dime
You might get a long distance call
Might tell a lie; might tell it all

If I should die before I turn 51
Bury me with a loaded gun
So I may lose my misery
Please erase my memory

If I don't my way up there
If I should find myself somewhere
Where it's always cold inside
