Come on Brother grab a shovel
Today we pay our debt
Take off that coat and tie
'Cause we'll work till that sunsets
Just like Daddy taught us
We'll do our job and do it right

So come on Brother grab that shovel
While we got a little light

Now the cemetery's empty
They left us all alone
I'm glad that you're here with me
'Cause I can't do this on my own
We aint got time for grievin'
Until that sun goes down tonight

So come on Brother grab that shovel
Wipe those tears out of your eyes

The preacher read Psalm 23
And then we sang 'I'll Fly Away'
we folded up that flag
And put that pine box in the grave

Now everyone's gone home
It's just Dad and Me and You

Some come on Brother grab that shovel
'Cause we still got some work to do

Tonight we'll drink a toast
To the man that raised us up
Who taught us how to live
And showed us how to love
To an ex-Marine and Father
And to a husband and a son
Until the man we'll meet in Heaven
When our time on Earth is done

The preacher read Psalm 23
And then we sang 'I'll Fly Away'
We folded up that flag
And put that pine box in the grave

Now every one's gone home
And it's just Dad and Me and You

So come on Brother grab that shovel
'Cause we still got some work to do
So come on Brother grab that shovel
'Cause we still got some work to do
