Well some people said it was cocaine
Well people claim it was gin
Well I know the girl and the dwell house man
That done my brother in

They put the last clean shirt
On my poor brother Bill
They put the last clean shirt
On my poor brother Bill

You know they found him in the back seat
Of an old abandoned Ford
When I touched the hand of my brother Bill
It was as stiff as a running board

They put the last clean shirt
On my poor brother Bill
They put the last clean shirt
On my poor brother Bill

The preacher said, he's gone now
Gone to another place
As they lowered him down into the ground
I felt a tear trickle down my face

They put the last clean shirt
On my poor brother Bill
They put the last clean shirt
On my poor brother Bill

The preacher said, he's gone now
Gone to another place
They lowered him down into the ground
I felt a tear trickle down my face
