No Headstone On My Grave - Jerry Lee Lewis




Don't put no headstone on my grave,
All my life I've been a slave,
I want the whole wide world to know,
Here lies this man that loved you so

Mama, mama, don't you cry,
I'm gonna meet you in the by and by,
Tell papa I'm comin' home,
God, it can't be very long

Don't put no headstone on my grave,
All my life I've been a slave,
Want the whole wide world to know,
Here lies the stud that loved you so

Don't put no headstone on my grave,
All my life I've been a slave.
I want the whole wide world to know,
Here lies a man that loved you so

Mama, mama don't you cry,
I'm gonna meet you in the by and by,
Tell 'em, I'm coming home,
Oh God, it can't be very long

Don't put no headstone on my grave
All my life I've been a slave,
Want the whole wide world to know,
Here lies a man that loved you so.


A blues version of the song by Rose Q (from the film "Consenting Adults")
