Well there's one kind favor i'll ask of you
Well there's one kind favor i'll ask of you
There's just one kind favor i'll ask of you
You can see that my grave is kept clean.

An' there's two white horses followin' me
An' there's two white horses followin' me
I got two white horses followin' me
Waitin' on my buryin' ground.

Did you ever hear that coffin sound
Did you ever hear that coffin sound
Did you ever hear that coffin sound
Means another poor boy is underground.

Did you ever hear them church bells toll
Did you ever hear them church bells toll
Did you ever hear them church bells toll
Means another poor boy is dead an' gone.

It's a long ol' road that never ends
It's a long ol' road that never ends
It's a long ol' trail that never ends
It's a bad wind that never changes.

Well my heart stop beatin' an' my hands turn cold
An' my heart stop beatin' an' my hands turn cold
Well my heart stop beatin' lord my hands turn cold
Now i believe what the bible told.

There's just one last favor i'll ask of you
And there's one last favor i'll ask of you
There's just one last favor i'll ask of you
See that my grave is kept clean.  up
