"When I'm Dead and Gone" as written by Benny Gallagher and Graham Lyle....
Oh I love you, baby
I love you night and day
When I leave you, baby, don't cry the night away
When I die, don't you write no words upon my tomb
I don't believe I want to leave
No epitaph of doom

Oh oh oh, when I'm dead and gone
I wanna leave some happy woman living on
Oh oh oh, when I'm dead and gone
Don't want nobody to mourn
Beside my grave, yeah

Old Mama Linda
She's out to get my hide
She's got a shotgun and her daughter by her side
Hey there, ladies
John son's free
Who's got the love, who's got enough
To keep a man like me

Oh oh oh, when I'm dead and gone
I wanna leave some happy woman living on
Oh oh oh, when I'm dead and gone
Don't want nobody to mourn
Beside my grave, yeah
