Don't Bury Me Till I'm Ready
Recorded by Johnny Paycheck
Written by John Moffat

G D7 G
Don't bury me till I'm ready
D7
Don't tell me that I'm gonna be missed
C G
Don't wave me goodbye son I'll spit in your eye
D7 G
Cause I ain't going out like this

D7 G
I've been forty years in a factory
D7
And I've lived all my life in a little old shack
C G
I gave up my youth to the boss man
D7
But as far as I know he ain't never give nothing back

G D7 G
Now they tell me that I'm too old to cut it
D7
That I oughta go and rest a spell
C G
They say that I'll be dead any day now
D7 G
But they don't know this old boy too well

Repeat #1 Cause don’t…

D7 G
You know ain’t I never had no easy occupation
D7
Hard work's all that I ever knew
C G
It's a fact I ain't got a thing now to show for it
D7 G
All the misery that life has put me through

D7 G
Yeah but a voice down deep in my guts keeps on screaming
D7
John you been going too long now to stop
C G
I've spent my whole life down on the bottom
D7 G
But by the grace of God I'm gonna go out on the top

D7 G
Yeah don't bury me till I'm ready
D7
Don't tell me that I'm gonna be missed
C G
Don't wave me goodbye son I'll spit in your eye

D7 G
And I ain't going out like this

D7 G
I ain’t gonna let you bury me till I’m ready
D7
Don't tell me that I'm gonna be missed
C G
Don't wave me goodbye son I'll spit in your eye
D7 G
And I ain't going out like this

D7 G
I ain’t gonna let you bury me till I’m ready
D7
I ain’t gonna list the things that I won’t do
C G
Might as well get it straight I’m still in good shape
D7 G
Until I’m gone you can bet I’m gonna do what I want to
