"Death Room Blues" as written by and Willie Mctell....
Tombstones is my pillow, cold grounds is my bed
Tombstones is my pillow, cold grounds is my bed
The blue skies is my blanket, and the moonlight is my spread

Early one morning, death walked into my room
Early one morning, death walked into my room
Oh well it took my dear mother, early one morning soon

She left me moanin' and cryin', moanin' like a turtledove
She left me moanin' and cryin', moanin' like a turtledove
Death walked in and got my dear mother, and the only friend I loved

Mmmm..... eehh....
Cryin' Lord have mercy, and she was the only friend I loved

Ever since my mother died and left me all alone
Ever since my mother died and left me all alone
All my friends have forsake me, people I haven't even got no home

Mmmm... feel like moanin' and cryin'
Mmmm... feel like moanin' and cryin'
Death walked in a got my mother, and that was the only dear friend of mine
