A HUNDRED DOLLAR FUNERAL 
CAPO 2ND FRET

WITH [G] ONE NICKLE IN HIS POCKET
AND A PACK OF CIGAR [C] ETTES
THERE WERE NO TEARS OF [G] SORROW
NO TEARS OF [D] REGRET
IN A PLAIN WOODEN [G] CASKET
THE COUNTY LAID HIM [C] AWAY
JUST A HUNDRED DOLLAR [G] FUNERAL
WITH NO [D] LOVED ONES TO [G] PRAY


THERE MUST BE A [C] MOTHER
WHO LOVED HIM [G] SOMEWHERE
PERHAPS SHE HAS [C] GONE ON
AND WAS WAITING UP [D] THERE
WHERE THERE’S NO DISAP [G] POINTMENTS
‘ROUND GOD’S GREAT [C] THRONE
NO HUNDRED DOLLAR [G] FUNERALS
UN [D] LOVED AND UN [G] KNOWN


NO [G] PRETTY MARBLE HEADSTONE
NOT ONE FRIEND [C] CAME
HE WAS LOWERED BY FOUR [G] STRANGERS
THAT DIDN’T KNOW HIS [D] NAME
A LOSER ON THIS [G] EARTH
A DEBT SO MANY MUST [C] PAY
JUST A HUNDRED DOLLAR [G] FUNERAL
WITH NO [D] LOVED ONES TO [G] PRAY


THERE MUST BE A [C] MOTHER
WHO LOVED HIM [G] SOMEWHERE
PERHAPS SHE HAS [C] GONE ON
AND WAS WAITING UP [D] THERE
WHERE THERE’S NO DISAP [G] POINTMENTS
‘ROUND GOD’S GREAT [C] THRONE
NO HUNDRED DOLLAR [G] FUNERALS
UN [D] LOVED AND UN [G] KNOWN
