If I Die Sudden

Album: Life, Death, Love and Freedom (2008)
  • If I die sudden
    Please don't tell anyone
    There ain't nobody that needs to know
    That I'm gone
    Just put me in a pine box
    Six feet underground
    Don't be calling no minister
    I don't need one around

    Well my grandma she told me
    She'd be waiting at the gate
    She said that the fix was in
    And that she's already prayed
    And the rest of my family
    Will be waiting there for me too
    They'd already taken care of my sins
    And there's was nothing for me to do

    [Chorus]
    So If I die sudden
    Please don't tell anyone
    There ain't nobody that needs to know
    That I'm gone
    Just put me in a pine box
    Six feet underground
    Don't be calling no minister
    I don't need one around
    I don't need no preacher around

    I got a little bit of money
    Some papers you might want to see
    I got a house down in Georgia
    But let's keep this brief
    I'm not afraid of dying
    This life's been right to me
    I got a whole bunch more than I deserve
    And now I will be free
    Yeah now I will be free

    [Chorus] Writer/s: JOHN MELLENCAMP
