If I Die Sudden Lyrics

by John Mellencamp

If I die sudden
Please dont tell anyone
There aint nobody that needs to know
That Im gone

Just put me in a pine box
Six feet underground
Dont be calling no minister
I dont need one around

Well, my grandma she told me
Shed be waiting at the gate
She said that the fix was in
And that shes already prayed

And the rest of my family
Will be waiting there for me too
Theyd already taken care of my sins
And theres nothing for me to do

So If I die sudden
Please dont tell anyone
There aint nobody that needs to know
That Im gone

Just put me in a pine box
Six feet underground
Dont be calling no minister
I dont need one around
I dont need no preacher around

I got a little bit of money
Some papers you might want to see
I got a house down in Georgia
But lets keep this brief

Im not afraid of dying
This lifes been right to me
I got a whole bunch more than I deserve
Now I will be free, yeah now I will be free

So If I die sudden
Please dont tell anyone
There aint nobody that needs to know
That Im gone

Just put me in a pine box
Six feet underground
And dont be calling no minister
I dont need one around
I dont need no preacher around
