Hundred Dollar Funeral
recorded by Porter Wagoner                      [3/4 time]
written by Vic McAlpin

G                                           C
With one nickel in his pocket and a pack of cigarette
                       G                  D7 
There were no tears of sorrow no tears of regret
                  G                          C
In a plain wooden casket the county laid him away
                      G               D7            G 
Just a hundred dollar funeral with no loved ones to pray

               C                     G
There must be a mother who loved him somewhere
                C                            D7
Perhaps she had gone home and was waiting up there
                     G                              C
Where there's no disappointments around God's great throne
                  G          D7          G
No hundred dollar funerals unloved and unknown

No pretty marble headstone no one friend came
                       G                              D7
He was lowered by four strangers that didn't know his name
                G                         C         
A loser on this earth a debt so many must pay
                      G               D7            G   
Just a hundred dollar funeral with no loved ones to pray

repeat #3
