A Hillbilly's Eulogy
Well…this old feller didn’t behave in the rightest way to live,
But he never done one single thing the good Lord won’t forgive,
An’ I actually kinda envy him…accept fer his bein’ dead…
‘Cause --- ponderin’ all the years of “easier days” that lie ahead ---
With no more paintin’ the house or shovelin’ snow or mowin’ the yard…
I’m bettin’ the boss up yonder won’t be a-workin’ ‘im near as hard.
