Please Don't Bury Me Ukulele Chords

Woke up this [D]morning, [G]put on my slippers
[D]Walked in the kitchen and [A]died
And [D]oh what a feeling!
When my [G]soul went thru the ceiling

And [A]on up into heaven I did [D]ride
When I [G]got there they did say
John, it [D]happened this way
You slipped upon the floor and hit your [A]head

And [D]all the angels say
Just be [G]fore you passed a [D]way
These were the very [A]last words that you [D]said:

[G]Please don’t bury me down [D]in the cold cold ground
No, I’d druther have “em” cut me up and pass me all a[A]round
[D]Throw my brain in a hurricane and the [G]blind can have my [D]eyes
And the [G]deaf can take [D]both of my ears if [A]they don’t mind the [D]size

[G] [D] [A] [D] [G] [D] [A] [D]

[D]Give my stomach to Milwaukee if [G]they run out of [D]beer
Put my socks in a cedar box, just [E7]get “em” out of [A7]here
[D]Venus de Milo can have my arms [G]Look out! I’ve got your [D]nose
[G]Sell my heart to the [D]junkman and [A]give my love to [D]Rose

[G]Please don’t bury me down [D]in the cold cold ground
No, I’d druther have “em” cut me up and pass me all a[A]round
[D]Throw my brain in a hurricane and the [G]blind can have my [D]eyes
And the [G]deaf can take [D]both of my ears if [A]they don’t mind the [D]size

[G] [D] [A] [D] [G] [D] [A] [D]

[D]Give my feet to the footloose [G]careless, fancy [D]free
Give my knees to the needy, don’t [E7]pull that stuff on [A7]me
[D]Hand me down my walking cane it’s a [G]sin to tell a [D]lie
[G]Send my mouth [D]way down south

And [A]kiss my ass good [D]bye
[G]Please don’t bury me down [D]in the cold cold ground
No, I’d druther have “em” cut me up and pass me all a[A]round
[D]Throw my brain in a hurricane and the [G]blind can have my [D]eyes
And the [G]deaf can take [D]both of my ears if [A]they don’t mind the [D]size
