INTRO

I'm going down to the undertaker and look down in my baby's face
I'm going down to the undertaker and look down in my baby's face
I'm sorry she had to leave me, but I just can't take her place

The hearse backed up to the undertaker and he rolled my babe away
The hearse backed up to the undertaker and it rolled my babe away
And now I can't do nothin' but grieve my time away

Can't a man feel bad, when his babe on the coolin' board
Now can't a man feel bad, when his babe on the coolin' board
And know she's dead and gone, can't see her smilin' face no more

SOLO

Lord, Lord, Lord, took the woman I loved so well
Lord, Lord, Lord, took the woman I loved so well
She may be in Heaven above, or down below in Hell

Says, and now she's dead and never more will roam
Er, and now she's dead and never more will roam
She was a kind black woman, hope she make Heaven her happy home
