"If I Die Sudden" as written by and John Mellencamp....
If I die sudden
Please don't tell anyone
There ain't nobody that needs to know
That I'm gone
Just put me in a pine box
Six feet underground
Don't be calling no minister
I don't need one around

Well my grandma she told me
She'd be waiting at the gate
She said that the fix was in
And that she's already prayed
And the rest of my family
Will be waiting there for me too
They'd already taken care of my sins
And there's was nothing for me to do

[Chorus]
So If I die sudden
Please don't tell anyone
There ain't nobody that needs to know
That I'm gone
Just put me in a pine box
Six feet underground
Don't be calling no minister
I don't need one around
I don't need no preacher around

I got a little bit of money
Some papers you might want to see
I got a house down in Georgia
But let's keep this brief
I'm not afraid of dying
This life's been right to me
I got a whole bunch more than I deserve
And now I will be free
Yeah now I will be free

[Chorus]
