    If anyone has a instrumental (official or fanmade) of this song I'd love to have it. Also, if anyone can play it on ukulele for me WITHOUT vocals, here are the tabs.

    Verse 1:
    Dm G Dm A,

    Verse 2:
    Dm G Bb Dm

    Bb Dm A Dm
    Bb Dm A Dm

    I also kinda need it ASAP.

    You can also read it like this:

    When my time to go is here,
    Call my friends to gather near.
    Dm A
    Tell the doctor and the preacher that I'm failing.

    But forget about your black,
    'Cause I'm planning to come back.
    Bb Dm
    Play some honky-tonkin' grief and Dixie wailing.


    Pick me up and lay me down,
    And spread the news all over town,
    A Dm
    And tell 'em all to come or they'll be sorry.
    Pick me up and shake me twice.
    I'm coming back from paradise.
    A Dm
    This poor boy is here to live in glory.

    When it's time to say good-bye,
    All my friends will sit and cry,
    And they'll watch the coffin rockin' round and squirmin'.

    Then they'll raise a mighty shout,
    When my bones come marching out.
    And I praise myself and preach the final sermon.


    When the Earth begins to quake,
    From the shaking at my wake,
    I'll be here and making music like a light wine [could be life line].

    'Till the honky-tonkin' grief,
    Gives the Angels sweet relief,
    'Cause they know that Dixie wail is still surviving.

    CHORUS 2x
