Lyrics
There's just one kind favor I'll ask of you (3X)
you see that my grave is kept clean

there's two white horses following me (3X)
and they're waiting on my dying ground

did you ever hear that coughing sound (3)
means another poor boy is underground

and did you ever hear that churchbell toll (3X)
means another poor boy is dead and gone

when my heart stop beating, my hands turn cold (3X)
turn cold, cold, cold
my heart stop beating, my hands turn cold (3X)
now I believe what the bible told

There's just one last favor I'll ask of you (3X)
you see that my grave is kept clean (repeat x times)
