Verse

AI live in the cemeEtery Oh DCaretaker they call Ame In the winter time I rake the Eleaves And in the Dsummer I cut the Aweeds AWhen a Dfuneral comes the peopleA cry and pray They Ebury their dead then they Aall go away DBut thru their grief IA still can see Their Ehate and greed and Ajealousy DSo here I work and I Asomehow hide From a Eworld that rushes Aby outside DAnd each night when I Arest my head I'm Econtented as the Dpeaceful Adead

Chorus

ABut who's gonna cry when old John dies EWho's gonna cry when Dold John Adies

Verse

Once I was a young man Dashing with the girls Now no one wants an old man I lost my handsome curls But I wanna say when my time comes Lay me facing the rising sun Put me in a corner where I buried my pop Tell the preacher to pray and cover me up Don't lay flowers where my head should be Maybe God will let some grow from me And all the little childern that I loved like my own Will they be sorry that old John's gone

Chorus

Who's gonna cry when old John dies Who's gonna cry when old John dies
