"Pardon This Coffin" lyrics

Pardon This Coffin

Pardon this coffin
Please step aside
Pardon this coffin
My brother just died
Now don't you give me no ornary look
Or I'll knock you down
I'm taking this coffin
Putting it six foot down
I'm telling you, six foot down

He was a champion
He was a chief
Till he lost that good job
And went on relief
Then came the downfall
Of spirit and mind
The devil took to him
And he took to wine

So I'm telling you
Pardon this coffin
Please step aside
Pardon this coffin
My brother just died
Now don't you give me no ornary look
Or l'll knock you down
I'm taking this coffin
Putting it six foot down
I'm telling you, six foot down

Yeah, not many mourners
But I'm not suprised
Not many mourners
Just me and two guys
Where's all them others
That claimed they's his friend
Not many mourners
It's a sad way to end

So pardon this coffin
Please step aside
Pardon this coffin
My brother just died
Now don't you give me no ornary look
Or I'll knock you down
I'm taking this coffin
Putting it six foot down
I'm telling you, six foot down
