    Lyrics

    I went to a funeral
    Lord it made me happy
    Seeing all those people
    I ain't seen
    Since the last time
    Somebody died

    Everybody talking
    They were telling funny stories
    Saying all those things
    They ain't said
    Since the last time
    Somebody died

    But you take a look around you
    Don't it seem like something's missing
    I said something that weren't missing
    Lord the last time
    Somebody died

    You took him from the last time
    To that hallowed ground
    I'm praying take me to the next time Lord
    So I can hang around

    Then the people start to looking
    And some of them start crying
    And all the little children
    Lord they're scared
    Because they ain't never seen
    A dead man before

    You took him from the last time
    To that hallowed ground
    I'm praying take me to the next time Lord
    So I can hang around

    He's swimming through that Jordan
    Going to the other side
    But if it's all the same to you Lord
    I think I'll stay dry

    Now it's church on Sunday
    It's a bar on Friday night
    It's work on Monday
    The preacher Lord you know he might sing

    Hallelujah
    Sing hallelujah
    Sing hallelujah
    Sing hallelujah

    He's got church on Sunday
    And he got drunk the night before
    And he got his good gal when he got home
    The preacher said he wants some more of that

    Hallelujah
    Sing hallelujah
    Sing hallelujah
    Sing hallelujah

    Now if you want to get to heaven
    Let me tell you what to do
    You better grease your foot up buddy
    With that mutton stew
    And when the devil comes after you
    With them greasy hands
    You just slide on over to the promised land

    Sing hallelujah
    Sing hallelujah
    Sing hallelujah
    Sing hallelujah

    Now there was two little imps
    And they was black as tar
    And they was trying to get to heaven
    In an electric car
    And that car wheel slipped
    On down the hill
    Instead of going to heaven
    They went to Jacksonville

    Sing hallelujah
    Sing hallelujah
    Sing hallelujah
    Sing hallelujah

    Thank you, you've been so nice
    All my friends they came
    Now close the lid down tightly
    And quit crying
    Because when they close them
    They all look the same

    And grab hold of the handle
    It won't be too heavy
    And take me to the graveyard

    I went to a funeral
    And Lord it made me happy
    Seeing all those people
    I ain't seen
    Since the last time
    Somebody...
