The last kind word I heard my daddy say Lord the last kind word I heard my daddy say If I die, if I die in the German War I want you to send my body, send it to my mother-in-law If I get killed, if I get killed, please don't bury my soul I (p'fer) just leave me out, let the buzzards eat me whole When you see me comin', look 'cross the rich man's field If I don't bring you flour, I'll bring you bolted meal I went to the depot, I looked up at the sign Cry some train don't come, there'll be some walkin' done My momma told me, just before she died Lord, (since the dawn, I thought you'd be so wise?) (Oh precious daughter, don't you be so wise) The Mississippi River, you know it's deep and wide I can stand right here, see my (babe?) (face?) from the other side What you do to me baby, it never gets out of me I mean I'll see you, after I cross the deep blue sea
This song is made famous by a biographical film “Crumb”, of the famous underground comic artist Crumb.
